    for settings

Parallel to GIMP 2.6.4, GEGL 0.0.22 has been released. You should use it to compile your new GIMP. It not only provides some nice speedups, but also features a new vector path representation infrastructure that will eventually become used in future GIMP versions.

As usual, you can find links to the source code and the Windows binary on our download page.

GEGL operations no longer work for me in 2.6.4 either. Could there be an issue with the GEGL 0.0.22 update in the packaged Windows installer?

None of the GEGL filter operators have slider controls now. I went ahead and un-installed 2.6.4 and went back to 2.6.3. Hopefully this issue will be resolved, or someone can explain to me how to get the sliders back. :)
