Is there the possibility to add multicore support in the image manipulation or enhance plugins. Most common cpus ourtimes have dual or more cores ? I saw if there are computing intensiv plugins, only one core is used.
There is also wish in Ubuntu about thumbnail generation with multiple core/CPU:
To be clear here, we need to use OpenMP API everywhere when it's possible...
I'm not convinced that OpenMP is the one and only solution for generating multi-threaded code. For pre-existing algorithms it is a nice way but for other stuff that needs more control over the number of threads, synchronization etc. it's not a good way.
For the thumbnail generation a thread pool wit a user defined size sounds like a more appropriate solution to my mind.
Please tests and report. My patch is against git/master. Let's me hear if this solution is suitable for you. It's not configurable.
sorry for the noise. wrong report
