As I interpret the GPL, I think it is allowed, as long as I publish the source code, too.
That would be, of course, the case.
Sharing the binary will not be easy... I can share the patch, because the forground extraction is a
tool, so it is contained in the source of gimp-2.8.exe.
For using the tool, you have to compile the main gimp-executable. It has exactly the same functionality
(also gui) of the tool in his fork gimp-2.7.4
You might be using the old version unless someone has wrote a new GUI. Here is part of what I received from Jan on July 10:
"Actually, I more or less finished the core algorithm in gegl, the new library that Gimp is using now for image manipulation stuff: http://www.gegl.org/operations.html#op_ ... ing-global
However, I really don't have the time to keep working on it. What's missing is the whole GUI part. So currently you can only use it on the command line, and not in Gimp itself...
I guess you'll just have to wait until someone does the GUI in Gimp to be really able to use it..."
