Title: Gimp-Perl release candidate ready for testing
Date: 2014-06-12
Category: News
Authors: Wilber Gimp
It's been possible to use various scripting languages to automate GIMP for a long time. But until recently [Perl bindings for GIMP]( were considerably out of date due to lack of interest from contributors. Fortunately, a while ago Ed J started working on updating those, and now a release candidate is available for testing.
[Gimp-Perl version 2.30_05]( is on CPAN now. It supports GIMP 2.8 and provides the following features:
* An autosave script (not installed by default, `examples/autosave2`) will save in its own directory files that were opened and changed, then reopen them on GIMP startup; if installed, will start along with GIMP.
* A plugin registry viewer, installed by default to `Filters/Browse Plug-in Registry`.
* A Perl console, installed by default to `Filters/Perl/Console`.
The way to install the release candidate on Linux is:
`perl -MCPAN -e "install 'ETJ/Gimp-2.30_05.tar.gz'"`

The only change is the fixed libtool versioning.

We have released an [updated 2.8.14 installer]( ([http]( for Microsoft Windows. This one fixes the [crash on window resize]( and the [missing icons]( bugs - all by updating the included GTK+ library to 2.24.24.
