First Windows build for GIMP 2.5 available!

By at 2008-08-28 02:31:13 UTC, last updated over 13 years ago. CC BY-NC License

Windows users should be happy today! A first unstable development release of GIMP 2.5 is now available for the Windows operating system!

GIMP is optimized for 32 and 64 bit architecture – so there are 2 different versions available now. We’ve linked them in our downloads page. Also please keep in mind that if you try the unstable release please don’t bother the developers with unreproducable bugs (should you encounter some).

As you might already know we have written a preview of the changes for Gimp 2.6. Have fun with the latest version of GIMP! When all the bugs are eliminated this version will finally become GIMP 2.6!

photocomix: yes i know - i decided to use 2.5.3 because there is no real 2.5.4 snapshot - its rather a lillte newer 2.5.3 (svn) and i also didn't want to confuse linux people - they have maybe wondered why there is a 2.5.4 for windows and not for linux. thats also the reason why i only used "2.5" an no more specific version numbering in the news, heh ;) hope you understand what i mean! maybe i should have used only "gimp-2-5-windows-released" - too late now ^^

BTW
release number of title is not correct.
Is not a installer for 2.5.3 but for 2.5.4 (from SVN), even better the release number is reported correctly in the installer name is just the title that report a wrong one

Thank a lot for the installer !!

you can run both versions -> stable and unstable indipendently ;) so no problem

it may run alongside the stable version or require the stable to be unistalled ?
