Support for Extended Bitmap (*.bmp) and *.dds format missing
Submitted by Oliver C.
I can't open *.bmp files that are saved in Microsoft's new Extended Bitmap format. The same is valid for *.dds S3TC texture compression formats.
It would be nice to be able to open and edit them in Gimp. It is also expecially usefull because some games and 3d Applications use those formats today to store textures.
Some informations about these formats can be found here:
