Gimp 2.8.4 – February 10, 2013
We uploaded latest release Gimp 2.8.4 as announced by Mitch a few days ago. This is a maintenance release with no new features. Matter of fact, our previous builds had most of the bug fixes already applied. However, for the sake of completeness, we are providing the 2.8.4 builds. To install, download the appropriate installer for your operating system and follow the prompt.
We have decided to try and harmonize our builds as much as possible. All the plugins (most useful for photographers) previously provided separately are already included in the builds, main and portable. So, no need to download and install the plugins separately. This is aligned with the Mac version where the plugins are already built in. If you are using other Gimp builds and would like to have access to these plugins, we are providing a 7z zipped Windows version, which you can unzip appropriately wherever you have installed Gimp.
These builds include the latest stable version of G'MIC, version 22.214.171.124. However, David is already on the road to 126.96.36.199. Don't forget to update the filters once you launch Gimp.
Based on user feedback, we have included a new plugin called beautify. Check it out and let us know if you like it. For the Mac and the Windows 64-bit, we have included an experimental version of UFRaw. A word of caution for the Windows user: a bug prevents you from moving the window after UFRaw is launched. Try not to move it, it will crash the plugin.
We welcome all feedback and comments. We appreciate your support and hope you keep using Gimp. If you encounter any issues, please let us know. One important point: if you leave a bogus email address, we obviously will not be able to respond to you.
So, if you are inclined to leave us feedback or a comment...
