Despite the major changes in the G’MIC syntax and interpreter, the pre-release 2.1.0 seems to be stable enough, and backward compatible with the previous syntax.
As the documentation has been already updated on the web site, I prefer to make this pre-release the default download, so that the documentation actually corresponds to the downloaded binaries.
I find the ‘new’ syntax really cool and natural, e.g.
$ gmic sample duck repeat 3 smooth 200,0,1,2,2 done sharpen 300 output output.jpg
$ gmic -sp duck -repeat 3 -smooth 200,0,1,2,2 -done -sharpen 300 -o output.jpg
(but both are working as expected).
I’m sure this will be more appealing for people like @patdavid
Do not hesitate to test and tell me what you think !
