Bug Fix to Gimp Book for Windows and More

Gimp Book interface

I finally found some time, one late Friday night, to fix an annoying bug in Gimp Book that was introduced some time after Gimp 2.8.4 on Windows only. The bug would cause Gimp Book to crash when you tried to choose a destination folder. The bug is now fixed, so Windows users should be able to grab the latest version of Gimp Book and enjoy it too!

In addition to bug fixing, I’ve added OpenRaster .ora support, both for import and export. OpenRaster is supported by both MyPaint and Krita, and is aimed at being a format for transferring layered images between different graphics packages. I’m looking into using Krita for colouring my next comic, but would like to bring the result back into Gimp and Gimp Book for lettering and the finishing touches. I’m pretty new to Krita, so it will be interesting to see how it pans out.
