I have updated Gimp 2.9 series to git pull from today, February 16, 2015. The portable version has been updated as well. G'MIC has been updated to 126.96.36.199 in the 2.9 series. For 2.8 series, G'MIC has been provided as a self-extracting 7z archive and for the Mac as a zipfile. G'MIC 32-bit no longer builds on my system and is restricted to 188.8.131.52.
Important: Uninstall previous builds from the target installation location. Installation has been streamlined as much as possible.
An installer has been provided for the 2.9 series. Download and double-click on the installer and follow the instructions on your screen. The portable version is a self-extracting 7z archive. Double-click and extract to a location where you have write privileges.
G'MIC 184.108.40.206 for the 2.8 series can be extracted to your personal folder, typically C:\Users\YourUserName\Appdata\Roaming\GIMP\2.8\plug-ins or to the system folder, typically C:\Program Files\Gimp-2.8\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins.
Make sure your registry is cleansed of all references to Gimp and then use Windows to associate this version of Gimp with your desired image formats.
Mac OS X
Installation on the Mac is straightforward. Unzip and drag the app to your personal or system Applications folder. The OS will do the rest. :) If you are one of the OSX beta testers, let me know if you have any issues.
G'MIC 220.127.116.11 for the 2.8 series can be extracted to your personal folder, typically /Users/YourUserName/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.8/plug-ins.
