GIMP 2.7.2 development release

Filed under
GIMP

About an hour ago the developers have released a long-awaited new development release which is another step towards GIMP 2.8. GIMP 2.7.2 comes with all the changes that were made after GIMP 2.7.1 was released in June 2010. There’s really a LOT of new stuff. The new release comprises layer groups (which were introduced after 2.7.1), an almost done text-on-canvas feature, the all-new brush engine and of course the new single window mode.

CHANGES IN GIMP 2.7.2

UI:

> A lot of undeprecations due to GTK+ 2.22 and 2.24
> Lots and lots of cairo porting, calls to gdk_draw_* are gone
> Merge the cage transform tool from GSoC
> Remove the old bitmap cursors completely and always use RGBA cursors
also for compat cursors for old X servers
> Add new GimpCanvasItem infrastructure with subclasses for everything
that needs to be drawn on the canvas and port all tools to canvas items, this is a huge change that touches all tools and almost all display code, and which finally gets rid of XOR drawing altogether

  • Zanshin 0.2.2 transition release
    Three years, five months and eleven days... yes, it's the elapsed time since our last release announcement. But don't despair! We're still alive and kicking. We've been busy working on our next release which is much more ambitious than the previous one. As part of this future release, we had to adjust a bit how we store some information. That is why today we are announcing a transitional minor release. Behold Zanshin 0.2.2!
  • All the yummies at Akademy 2015
  • Fruits of Akademy
    For the second time I had the chance to attend Akademy, this time in cold and rainy La Coruña. It has been a week of interesting talks, good food (except for one Tortilla incident), and hacking. [...] KRunner History is Back Supposedly this was one of the reason I still saw quite a few people running Plasma 4 during the conference but now there’s no more reason not to do the switch! ;)
