First release candidate of GIMP 2.10 available
Over the past years the team behind GIMP has constantly worked on almost every bit and byte that makes GIMP such a great product in the open source sector.
Now they could happily announce that GIMP 2.10 is on the home strech! There are still some bugs but it is already in a very good condition and personally we found it could be used in production already.
Lots of things have been improved since the 2.9.8 dev version:
- The layer masks on layer groups are now fully working
- A new filter to adjust Shadows and Highlights separately is available
- GIMP can now import JPEG 2000 images that have high bit depth such as 32bit
- new icons have been added
- GUI improvements
- new cool GEGL operations (recursive transform is an effect where images can repetitively appear inside itself; enlarge; inpaint; domain transform can smooth images while preserving the edged;)
- and lots of other small changes
You can find a more informative list of changes on the official GIMP website
