Okay, so GIMP 2.9.8 is finally out. On-canvas gradients editing, faster color space conversions, slightly improved PSD support, bugfixes etc. https://www.gimp.org/news/2017/12/12/gimp-2-9-8-released/ https://mastodon.social/media/QIT7JdiOYxylJ3upmaE
It's a bit ironic that it's much easier to install a lot of the FOSS graohics tools and the dev versions of all on Windows and macOS than it is on Linux. 😐
Hopefully that will change soon.
(I wonder if we should start a thread on the forum about it and ask people to help out?)
A new 2.9.8 release of @GIMP is now available (windows and macOS builds to follow)!
Have a look at some of the great new features (on-canvas gradient editing, clip warning, wayland support, paste in place, and more)!
Noticed a bunch of new followers, so: Welcome aboard!

My illustration in three panels of the Dream Quest of Unkown Kadath, by HPL.(This was him at his most Dunsany, which i like) HPL is a problem. Hopeless, Maine can be said to be part of his legacy, in part, but we reject his racism vehemently. https://mastodon.art/media/-xK3nxwi11UQevqujOA
