Thank you for the "download ads" warning. I AM a complete novice and understand very little about all this lingo, however even I understood this warning completely. Very helpful

Those download ads usually try to divert you to modified versions of the software, which may include adware or malware. They copy the most common UI element for downloads nowadays - the green arrows - and use that to get the unsuspecting users' attention.

The actual download links on this site are placed in the box at the upper right, with an orangish background - right above the place where ads are shown, unfortunately.

Will be great to have! Btw, it is time to update the Ad above the comment section of this page to Gimp 2.8 - Free Download, after all that IS the latest version.
I am looking forward to using the Gimp 2.8 in my teaching (new semester beginning end July) - so far I am enjoying the conversion to Open Source. This magazine will help make the Gimp more "respectable" for those die-hard "PS-rules" students...

Looking forward to it and thank those who have worked hard to make this happen. Might also help to get those who use other editors a good PR glimpse at what GIMP can do for them as well. :)
