Who said it should be? GIMP developers have never intended XCF to be a "standard", or to be useful for image interchange between applications. It is GIMP's own format, used to save your work between GIMP sessions, and permanently with all layers etc included. Nothing more. In fact, one can see it as counter-productive that other applications "learn" to display XCF images, as that means people will then complain if/when the XCF format changes. (GIMP itself will of course be backward compatible and know to read also old XCF files, but other apps might not then understand newer XCF images.) --tml ------------------------------------ List archives: <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gimpwin-users/> To unsubscribe send a blank message from the address you're subscribed to <mailto:gimpwin-users-unsubscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>Yahoo!
