These are the changes:

  • Sliders now use a compact style with improved user interaction
  • Vastly improved user experience for the transformation preview
  • Dockable areas now highlighted when a dockable dialog is being dragged
  • New 3D Transform tool to rotate and pan items
  • Much smoother brush outline preview motion on the canvas
  • Symmetry painting enhancements
  • Faster loading of ABR brushes
  • PSD support improvements
  • Consolidated user interface for merging down and anchoring layers
  • Update check to notify users of new releases available
  • 28 bug fixes, 15 translation updates

There are a lot of illustrations on the official GIMP Website

This is an awesome new version and you should check it out definitely earlier than later :) We’ve also updated our downloads section to reflect the latest version updates. Enjoy!

So far not liking the changes...the tools use to be so easy to just time wasted looking for the right one....and whats up with the export. I can't get a texture to export when I just resize it. Which has been more wasted time. Liked the old way better.

Tools are now grouped in the toolbox by default

This is a horrible idea, thank goodness you can turn it off! With this enabled, can't find anything and end up opening one list after another (which is quite fiddly to do) looking for the tool I want. Everything takes 5x as long. Suggest turning this off by default and having it available through preferences for anybody who teally wants it - though I cannot imagine why anybody would!
