It will support GIF uploads, but if the image is an animated GIF, the thumbnails and intermediate images will not animate.

Yes, that's correct.  Coppermine doesn't do anything with the original image, all it does is create thumbnail and intermediate images.

This is not something that the coppermine dev team could address even if we wanted to: it depends on the image libraries coppermine uses to create resized versions of your pics: GD or ImageMagick. Both libraries now support GIFs (the GIF support was dropped in the past because of legal issues with the copyright holders for a compression algorhythm used in GIFs, but it returned some time ago), but they don't support animated GIFs. As the coppermine relies on either GD or ImageMagick to exist on your server (as minimum requirement), you'll have to use whatever you have on your server.
There have been requests in the past that we should support animated gifs (or even movies or flash files), but we just can't: that's something an app like coppermine (which is written in PHP) simply isn't capable of, that's why the libraries that do the actual image manipulation exist and are being used.

Although as stated in the FAQ or DOC I can't remember which at the moment you can upload your own thumb_ and normal_ pix so that coppermine doesn't need to generate them with IM or GD. And if you have software on you own machine that will do this it will work then.

Come to think of it this should work in 1.3 to ... no??

The latest version of GD does have some animated GIF support, but I have yet to see any PHP functions that take advantage of them.  We'll have to wait until a PHP/GD bundled release provides them.
