Uploaded version 0.2. This new version contains a few corrections and adds explanations to each of the RGB types (bit depth, with or without alphas, etc).
Note that in Gimp 2.10, DDS support is standard, no plugin installation is necessary. But as it seems to be essentially the same code, the rest of the explanations are still valid.
