GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software suitable for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, a image format converter, etc.
GTK+-DirectFB is a backend for GDK, the drawing kit used by GTK+. Since DirectFB provides drawing functions, a windowing stack, and manages input devices, this is a lightweight GDK port. GTK+-DirectFB is based on GTK+-2.0 and implements the drawing functionality encapsulated in GDK. It allows you to run standard GTK+-2.0 applications on the Linux framebuffer. Due to the use of DirectFB, graphic operations are hardware accelerated if a suitable DirectFB gfx driver is available. Since DirectFB is a very thin library, the memory footprint of GTK+-DirectFB is relatively small.
blinkentools is a set of commandline utilities related to Blinkenlights. It includes b2b, a converter for blinkenmovies that can apply some simple effects, b2mng, which creates MNG animations from blinkenmovies, and bsend, which sends movies over the net using the Blinkenlights network protocol.

Re: When will version 1.2.3 be released ?!
What can I reply to such nonsense and FUD? Sometimes it just takes a little longer to get things right. GIMP-1.2.3 has been released in the meantime and development goes on.
