GIMP 2.8.8 has been released!
GIMP 2.8.8 was announced some hours ago: this is a new version in the stable bransh of GIMP. The developers have fixed many bugs including the problem with displaying the correct file size on some places on Windows and a crash with big text sizes.
Much more has been done as you can read in the official news file.
Changes from GIMP 2.8.6 to GIMP 2.8.8
Core:- Make sure indexed images always have a colormap - Fix language selection via preferences on Windows - Don’t crash on setting a large text size
GUI:- Keep the same image active when switching between MWM and SWM - Make sure all dockables are properly resizable (particularly shrinkable) - Add links to jump directly to Save/Export from the Export/Save file extension warning dialogs
Libgimp:- Fix GimpPickButton on OSX
Plug-ins:- Properly document plug-in-autocrop-layer’s PDB interface - Fix importing of indexed BMPs
General:- Fix lots of places to use GIO to get proper file sizes and times on windows - Add an AppData file for GIMP - Backport lcms2 support from master, because lcms1 is not getting bug fixes any longer - Lots of bug fixes - Lots of translation updates
