      INSTALL: update the build instructions to target meson. · e7faae1d
      Jehan authored
      If we want to encourage meson usage in GIMP 2.99.12 as a test run, our
      INSTALL file should target meson commands and options.
      Also I took the opportunity fix a bit some parts which were outdated.

      Migrate from intltool to gettext · f663d26a
      Niels De Graef authored and Jehan's avatar Jehan committed
      intltool has long been dead upstream. Let's not poke the dead corpse,
      This commit is quite large, but that's mostly since trying to support a
      hybrid of both gettext and intltool with both Meson and Autotools was
      really hard, so I stopped trying.
      Due to gettext relying on quite some things being at the exactly right
      place in the autotools build (like `ABOUT-NLS` and `config.rpath`) we
      really needed to cleanup the `autogen.sh` to only call `aclocal` and
      `autoreconf`. No more strange magic; I tried to do it without changing
      too much in the file, and things just broke. If people want to do
      something more custom, they can just change the script directly. This
      change also uncovered some problems in our `configure.ac`, like using
      deprecated macros.
      The following major changes happened:
      * meson: Changed `custom_target()` to `i18n.merge_file()` for all
        supported file types
      * Added `.its` and `.loc`  files for the GIMP-specific XML formats, so
        that gettext understand...

      Issue #8005: GIMP depends on gvfs, but it is not listed in INSTALL.in. · 83434f72
      Jehan authored
      It's not a direct dependency and doesn't prevent GIMP from any of its
      core logics, but HTTP is a used enough format nowadays that we want to
      consider it as mandatory nowadays.
      From what I know, `gvfs` might be for Windows only though. This would
      explain issues we have with remote URL on other platforms.

      Issue #7956: Add full BigTiff open/export support to GIMP. · 871796a1
      Jehan authored
      Recent libtiff supports loading BigTiff automatically so we didn't have
      anything to do there (as long as a recent libtiff was used). For
      creating a BigTIFF though, we simply needed to add a "8" flag to
      TIFFOpen/TIFFClientOpen when creating a new image (i.e. using "w8"
      mode) as explained here in the "Implementation Strategy" section:
      What this commit does:
      - Explicitly bump our libtiff requirement to version 4.0.0 or higher
        (which is where BigTiff support appeared).
        libtiff 4.0.0 was apparently released on 2011-12-22 and is available
        on all current distributions, so it's probably not a problem.
      - Switch to detect libtiff with a pkg-config test (added in libtiff
        commit faf5f3eb before 4.0.0 release, so it's fine) instead of
        function checks.
        (Note: meson was already detecting for libtiff-4 with pkg-config,
        which was obviously wrong since it should have mimicked autotools, but
        well… then changes were minimal on meson)
      - Add a new "bigtiff" boolean argument to the "file-tiff-save" PDB
        procedure, FALSE by default. I set this as the first argument as I
        figure that choosing the format you want is quite a major choice.
        Unless I misunderstood something, since BigTIFF is really designed to
        be an evolution of TIFF with a "minimum change strategy", i.e. mostly
        using 64-bit instead of 32-bit offsets, everything which is possible
        in TIFF will be in BigTIFF (and oppositely as well, except of course
        having huge files) so there is no need to have 2 separate procedures.
      - Adding this new argument to the GUI dialog as a checkbox.
      - Tweak the load and export procedures' documentation strings to make
        clear we support both TIFF and BigTIFF.
        Note: interestingly there doesn't seem to be a separate mimetype for
        BigTIFF so nothing to update on this side.
      - Tweak the procedure labels too to mention BigTIFF. Since BigTIFF is
        still a different format (though very closely resembling) from TIFF,
        unlike some others which are just extensions embedded in a TIFF file
        (like GeoTIFF we recently added), I figure it deserves to be
        explicitly cited.

      INSTALL: explaining a bit more the deal with librsvg. · 26f9bcb3
      Jehan authored
      Rust dependencies are not really making everyone happy apparently. We
      don't want to make SVG support optional anymore because it is too
      important, and unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any suitable
      replacement SVG libs so far (or we haven't found them).
      We explain this in the INSTALL file and also explain a bit how to bypass
      the SVG parts for packagers really needing to do so, allowing GIMP to be
      as portable as possible.
      See also issue #6821.

      INSTALL: update the install instructions regarding librsvg. · a08224f7
      Jehan authored
      Currently it's a mandatory option (and it has been the case for years,
      ever since commit 43e21885) so let's update the info.
      Note that there are still discussions going on about this dependency and
      it being hard or impossible to build on many platforms (which are stuck
      on old C version, before the move to Rust). See #6821.
      We'll see how it goes.

      INSTALL: update info about libmypaint. · 1028345b
      Jehan authored
      Since recently, one can also install the new "libmypaint-v1" branch. It
      is not so different, but has several fixes. Among them, it fixes
      building with recent automake.

      app, libgimpbase: --enable-relocatable-bundle replaces --enable-binreloc · 4d84c1d7
      Jehan authored
      Older --enable-binreloc configure option had basically the same purpose
      as the newer --enable-relocatable-bundle, though the old binreloc was
      only used for gimpenv.c code.
      As a consequence, commit 10ce7021 was still not working fine since
      gimp_installation_directory_file() also need binreloc enabled (to be
      actually relocatable).
      Let's get rid of this whole mess, by implying we want binreloc code to
      be used when --enable-relocatable-bundle is ON. We don't need the
      m4macros anymore, since AM_BINRELOC was basically just checking that
      `/proc/self/maps` was present. But anyway being present at compile time
      does not mean it will be at runtime (nor the opposite). So this test is
      not that useful. The binreloc code will anyway fallback gracefully to
      the non-binreloc code (i.e. trying to use build-time install paths) if
      the procfs is lacking at runtime.

      configure: check presence of "gegl:matting-levin" with `gegl --exists`. · 9560a653
      Jehan authored
      This is a runtime dependency. If absent, we simply won't have access to
      the alternative Matting Levin engine in the foreground selection tool.
      If we don't add a test in configure, this may be easily forgotten. I
      created the `gegl --exists` feature specifically for this kind of
      checks, so let's check operation existence.
