If you've already downloaded and installed GIMPShop 2.2.11 for Mac - here are the missing plug-ins, and instructions on how to install them. It's not hard, but you do have to copy and paste three commands into the terminal. If you'd rather not mess with that - you can just download and install the new version.

The House Judiciary Committee is going to “mark up” Representatives Sensenbrenner and Conyers’ good Net Neutrality bill this morning (watch the Committee vote via the Web). Many in the committee have been pressured by the big telcos to vote down the net neutrality provisions.
These are the members to contact on the bipartisan bill. Urge them to support the Sensenbrenner-Conyers “Internet Freedom and Nondiscrimination Act of 2006″ (HR 5417) in the Judiciary Committee today — and to support it without amendment. Saying without amendment is key.
Save the Internet has a list of members of Congress who need to hear from you right now.

A new binary for GIMPShop - and a new look for GIMPShop dot Net. Even a new Logo.
What do you think of the new look?

The problem is - he hasn't uploaded it yet. You see, he works for G4 - the Video Game Channel. And there's been a little thing going on this week called E3 - the Video Game Expo. So he's been a little busy.
I'll let you know as soon as I see the program being ready for download.
Now that he's got that done - hopefully we'll see his promised Windows port soon enough.
Thanks Scott! Hope you enjoyed E3! Look forward to the new GIMPShop!
Let me explain why this is so cool. This means that GIMPShop has BEAT Adobe Photoshop to Universal Binary status by nearly a year! Pretty amazing that Scott can do something in a month that a huge mega-company like Adobe can't do in a year!

- A Universal Binary for OS X so that GIMPShop runs natively on PowerPC and Intel architecture. This should be available within a week or two.
- Translatable source code so that GIMPShop can be translated into any language by anyone who has the patience, time and language skills to do it. This is a high priority and I’ll do my best to make it happen.
- More plug-ins and filters to match Photoshop’s pre-installed filters and Photoshop’s filter structure/naming conventions as closely as possible. In the coming weeks, I’ll be testing the best alternatives so that only the best and most relevant filters are in there. There will be a separate menu area for gimp-specific filters.
- A simultaneous Windows XP GIMPShop release, providing that I can figure out how to build it on my own. I’ll be building the installer using a new Intel-based Mac purchased with your generous donations. I shudder to think that I’ll be running XP on it, but it’s not my Mac - It’s YOUR Mac and it’s almost here!

Inpics.net is offering, free-of-charge over 20 computer books in PDF form. These books are light on verbage and heavy on pictures. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and this is especially true in technical manuals. With a picture showing me what button to press, you can save a lot of words trying to tell me all the steps to find that button in the drop down menus.
From Inpics.net you can download screen-quality PDFs of the books for free, or you can pay just $3.95 for the print-quality PDFs for a roll-your-own deadtree version. I prefer free and environmentally friendly, myself. But there might be times when you need to print some out. Of course, you can always print the free ones, they just won't look as good.
Available books include:
The books are released through a Creative Commons liscence which means you can share electronic copies with your friends. And since you are all my friends, I've decided to share all 22 books with you. You can download all of these PDF books here (note: large file - 98MB) To get the individual books, just click on the links above, or visit Inpics.net.
- Computer Basics
- Microsoft Office
- Web layout
- Web graphics
- Web programming
I wish there was a GIMPShop or at least GIMP book in there, but there are quite a few open source topics (Linspire, OpenOffice.org, MySQL), so maybe a GIMP/GIMPShop book is not too far behind.
