Changes in GIMP 2.8.14:

  • Fix libtool versioning (forgot to bump gimp_interface_age)
  • Fix brush sizes when used from plug-ins
  • Make XCF loading more robust against broken files
  • Make sure the widget direction matches the GUI language
  • Remove the option to disable the warning when closing a modified image
  • Fix canvas overlay widgets (like the text options) for tablets
  • Make DND work between images in one dockable
  • Make gimp_image_get_name() return the string used for the image title
  • Make script-fu-server more secure by listening to 127.0.0.1 by default and add a warning about changing that IP. This breaks the procedure’s API, but for security reasons.
  • Bring back proper script-fu translations
  • Add Jenkins tutorial
  • Documentation updates
  • Bug fixes
  • Translation updates

gimp

What’s in GIMP 2.9.1:

  • the Lanczos 3 sampler (replaced by the new LoBlur samling method)
  • Maximum RGB filter
  • Color temperature correction: There is a new filter in the Colors menu that lets you correct the color temperature of your photos.
  • Tile based computation and projection
  • ICC v4 color profile conversion support
  • GEGL based filters and plugins
  • OpenCL-accelerated filters
    • These filters do currently make use of the full power of your CPU/GPU hardware which results in accelerated computation: Gaussian Blur, Grey, Laplace, Motion Blur, Pixelize, Sobel, Threshold
  • Multi-core CPU / GPU support
  • More on-canvas previews: Gaussian and Motion Blur work on-canvas and also most of the Noise creation filters.
  • Heavily improved scaling quality: No- and LoHalo-Samplers
  • New tool: Unified transformation
  • Lossless color space conversions
  • A huge step for GIMP: 16/32 bit per channel support
  • Bug fixes and translation updates
