OSWeekly: I have been successfully using GIMP for what seems like years. It's free, it's stable and once you understand the rather strange menu layout, it actually provides fantastic functionality. But the reality remains that some people are still trying to come off their Photoshop dependency, and for these individuals, the argument about how fantastic it is tends to fall on deaf ears.
gimp.org: GIMP 2.4.0-rc3 fixes most of the bugs that were reported for the earlier release candidates. Some highlights include using the new format for storing recently used files, added conversion options to the color profile conversion plug-in, and improved handling of the JPEG settings.

It lets you change settings such as minimum/maximum size, position, overlay, and transparency. By changing the default behavior of the various windows used by GIMP with KDE's window-specific settings, you can improve the GIMP interface.
GIMP 2.4.0-RC2 is finally there. The developers have fixed quite some bugs since RC1 but it's not the final thing yet.
