GIMP 2.8.2 (+Windows build) has been released
GIMP 2.8.2 has been released and contains some amendments (including improvements for Mac OS X) and bugfixes.
For instance, the performance of some filters has been improved and the Close dialog tells when closing an unsaved, but exported image.
As always, we have linked the soure code and the already available Windows version in our downloads.
If you are curious about the version number: Releases will have an even micro version number (the third part of the number) from now on to distinguish between non-released and released versions. For instance, if you fetch the current source code from the repository and build it, you will get GIMP 2.8.3 and not 2.8.4. As soon as the work is complete, 2.8.4 will be released.
