By at 2009-08-16 13:36:22 UTC, last updated over 8 years ago. CC BY-NC License

A new version of GIMP has been released. Version 2.6.7 fixes a lot of bugs, especially also bugs with the latest GEGL and babl releases. Hopefully also the problems with the crashes on Windows should be fixed.

You can find the latest sourcecode and binary installers for Windows in our download section.
