Gimp 2.8 – Eclipse Splash

I was wondering why the splash screen is not visible anymore after using Gimp 2.8 to create the *.bmp file. It’s the color profile option that needs to be deactivated. Here’s the workflow:

Create a splash design with Inkscape:

Width: 455 px
Height: 295 px

Export the design to *.png format (90 dpi).

Splash Inkscape

Then open the *.png file with Gimp and export it to *.bmp format.

Splash Gimp

Use the options:

Compatitbility:
> Don’t write color information
24 Bit
> R8 G8 B8

That’s it :-).

OSGi “visibility:=reexport” directive

After removing some “visibility:=reexport” directives in my plugins, my workspace crashed as hell. The Eclipse problems view and the error messages where also quite confusing and misleading. Anyhow, I managed to fix all issues after investing some hours of work. I decided to import all needed dependencies in the MANIFEST.MF directly from now on. Furthermore, I decided to not use the “visibility:=reexport” directive anymore.

How are your experiences?
