Regarding my last work on the layer manager, I have drawn up a roadmap and started raising funds for the development of the Image Layer.
The project is divided for a total of 6 phases, where each stage has its budget. Each phase addresses a particular aspect, such as: layer management, operations, etc..
Stage : Management
Target : Management and operations common to organize Layer.
Stage : Transform
Target : Simple operation to change the selected layer.
Stage : Color
Target : Operation for the color management.
Stage : Import & Export
Target : Import and export in the formats most commonly used layer.
Stage : Tools
Target : Paint Tools, Selection Tools, Generic Tools
Stage : Brush
Target : Improvement Brush
To further explore each stage, you can check out my blog.
Additionally, I created the pages where you can report bugs and suggest new features related to image layer.
This project can be developed and improved only with help from everyone! So I can spend more time developing the Image Layer for Blender.
At the moment 24,42€ has already be funded. But to make sure that this project will get a boost more money is needed. Total needed funds for the project is 3000€ , but the project will be started when 500€ has been collected.
Your donation will be used to continue to improve this project.
Thank everyone in advance for your contribution!

For the record, I'm not a big believer in privately-run development fundraisers like this one (for one thing, there's no guarantee it'll end up in trunk), but maybe you feel different and it deserves a chance.
