Rod Will you be posting a windows gimp 2.8 soon, ps I have not given up on gimp# but i'n waiting for your 018 compile for windows to be posted.
I can send you the compiled version Graechan in a link via PM.
All you will need to do is unzip to your gimp-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins folder and restart Gimp-2.6.12.
Keep in mind i have not tested it in Gimp-2.6.12 , nor Gimp-2.8 RC-1 as i do not want to mess up my current install.
I tested on Gimp-2.7 versions only, and it fails. A small hint... i believe it's missing a crucial dll file. Possibly mono.
I will include it in the zip if you like.
As far as Gimp-2.8 for Windows i only compiled it out of curiosity. With the dll problems i keep getting i wouldn't dare post an installer yet. Not until i fixed that at least.
Besides i believe the official installers will give you a choice to allow older plugins to work. Mine wouldn't.
You are much better off waiting for the release from the official Gimp team in my honest opinion.
Attached is one that you can unzip to RC1 /lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins folder and it will work. I tested this one.
