Does GIMP suppport float point data, how to add file format support?
Strange question. Floating point data for what? Internally the RGB channels are still handled as 8-bit integers (0-255 range), but some future version is supposed to move to all floating-point for internal data.
One can write plug-ins to support loading/saving any kind of file format.
