I thought I would share with you all this e-mail I've just received from Filter Forge.
After 8 years of development, we're happy to announce the long-awaited Filter Forge successor, codenamed Ultraforge – a powerful node-based environment for image generation and processing:
GPU support for significant speed improvement. Node-based programming: nodes for bitmaps, numbers, strings, lists, and more. Generative AI: create images from text using Stable Diffusion AI. Image-to-Image AI: create images from other images using AI – effects on steroids! Space monkeys! (Did we mention the text-to-image AI node?)
