ANNOUNCE: GIMP 2.10.0-RC2 released

Hi,

We just released the second release candidate on the way to the final GIMP 2.10.0 release.

This is (still!) an unstable development release and might crash or do whatever. If you try it for work, please save your images more often.

But please use it and report bugs, it's actually usable :)

For a complete list of changes since 2.10.0-RC1 please see the "Changes" section below.

There is also a release announcement on www.gimp.org with screenshots of new features:

Happy GIMPing, --Mitch

Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.10.0 RC1 to GIMP 2.10.0 RC2 ===========================================================

Core:

- Symmetries are now preserved in XCF files (saved as image parasites).
- New runtime option --show-debug-menu in order to make the File > Debug menu visible.
- Do not show invisible actions in search dialog. - Do not dither image mask and channels for imported images. - Various optimizations for painting and display (WIP), including parallelized painting code.
- New "Misc" group to the Dashboard dock, with currently only a "Mipmapped" field showing the total size of processed mipmapped data.
- Plug-ins debugging on crashes through --stack-trace-mode CLI option improved to handle more case.
- Fix selection -> channel -> selection roundtrips by never doing any gamma conversion when converting between an image's selection, channels, masks. Also, make all channels linear in all images with >8bit.

Libgimp:

- New group "drawable_edit" which contains all functions from "edit" that are not cut/copy/paste. The new functions have much less arguments and take them from the context instead. The respective functions in "edit" have been deprecated. - New functions in "context" to configure aspects of gradient drawing, and to set the built-in gradients (the new gradient function in "drawable_edit" doesn't have a parameter for the gradient type any longer).

User interface:

- Lighter and Darker themes removed for now, Light and Dark themes rewritten from scratch to get rid of various usability issues and glitches. Only Gray theme from previous set kept as-is. - New GimpToolGyroscope on-canvas control, currently used for the Panorama Projection filter. The widget provides on-canvas interaction for 3D rotation (yaw, pitch, roll).

Configurability:

- In Preferences > Dialog Defaults, new section "Filter Dialogs" created to customize various common features of filters, such as recent settings and advanced color options. - Do not default to last used filter settings, but allow this behavior in Preferences > Dialog Defaults, with checkbox "Default to the last used settings".

Tools:

- Color used in the Smudge tool is now added to the color history. - "Blend" tool renamed to much more consistent "Gradient" tool. Also it can now work in linear RGB matching capabilities CSS/SVG specification without gamma-errors in color blending and CIE Lab which in addition keeps a perceptual graylevel.

Assets / Resources:

- Adding 4K UHD in document templates (and fixing 4K DCI).

Building:

- New --enable-bundled-mypaint-brushes option in configure to decide whether to use the configure-time installation path of MyPaint brushes, or use a path relative to GIMP installation prefix (typically for bundled binaries, such as on Windows or macOS). - Detect freetype2 using pkg-config (`freetype-config` is on its way out in various distributions apparently). - Appdata now installed to $PREFIX/share/metainfo/

Translations:

- 8 translations were updated: Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, French, Italian, Polish, Russian, Swedish.

Awesome news!!! I'm totally looking forward to GIMP 2.10! :)

By the way, I watched the "Why the GIMP Team Obviously Hates You" video by Pat David:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AemoQzCFHpc

and I now have a new respect for the GIMP team. Hats off and kudos who contribute to this amazing software!

Peace...

Tom

Thanks for the update, though I do scratch my head over the idea that an unstable development build is somehow a "release candidate". I see this seems to be the norm in the FOSS community, so I guess I can't really blame the GIMP team, but it does seem like a software engineering problem to issue release candidates with suspected issues.

Asking here, just in case -

I was hoping to install this on a fresh linux build (LFS/BLFS, all from source using my existing scripts) : -RC1 installed on another machine, and from that I know that I need to modify my own script-fu package. BUT - the gimp barfed because

In my seventh decade astride this planet, and as my own cells degrade,

calculus. I couldn't do them in my 20s either, so no big loss.

I had hoped to install this in a fresh all-from-source LFS/BLFS build (RC1 on a different machine worked, but a separate plugin rebooted the machine, which might well be a Ryzen problem) because I know that my own script-fu script needs to be updated. But to my surprise it failed to build because pygtk-2.24.0 had no-longer installed its headers.

So, my general view is that python is even more of a PITA that I had assumed (pygtk-2.24.0 installed its headers in previous builds, and for this build my pygtk script and my toolchain had not changed), but does anybody have any suggestions on this ?

Or maybe I should just give up, or else give up the snake (and swear volubly at anyone who suggests that using python for scripts is easier ;)

Meanwhile, congratulations to the developers, but I'm sorry that I can't build/use this.

Fixed that (a change in how an earlier module needs to be built/installed) but now when I fire it up the splash screen says RC1 although Help -> About says RC2. Trivial, but perhaps another item for the pre-release checklist ?

Yeah. I was going to parody that. :) But it was updated. Do another pull if you are using git.
