FYI. A new IOL plug-in from Stephen Geary. Available as a patch in the CinePaint SF project. Not in the CinePaint release, yet.

I emailed quite some time ago about developing IOL. I've now got some code
for anyone who wants to have a look.
Basically I've taken IOL and extended it quite a bit. Hopefully the
plug-in is faster, although direct comparisons with the original are hard, as the new version simply does things the old one could not.
There is also a small application to build an SCM (Script-Fu) wrapper for
IOL scripts, including menu entry and parameter passing.
I've attached a Gzip'd Tar file with sources and examples.
The main features that the new IOL ( IOL7 ) now supports are :
1.) Parameters - the scripts can now accept parameters e.g. from script-fu via the plug-in
2.) Better support for HSV, HSL and a poor-man's CIE-LABtransforms
3.) Improved (?) internals for hopefully faster operations
4.) Initialization, looping and multiple pass scripts.
5.) Instructions to automate and speed up linear transforms.
6.) Support for 5 precision types ( U8, U16, FLOAT, BFP and FLOAT16).
Anyhow, you can see if you can (a) get it compiled ( only tried on my own
Linux system so far ) and (b) find it useful.
