The @GIMP have just released 2.10 to the world! Six years of hard work and improvements are all wrapped up and now available! Congratulations to the GIMP team for all of their hard work and dedication to bring us such a great project!
@GIMP That should read "The GIMP _team_ have just..."
@patdavid This release looks simply amazing! Thanks to all involved!
@patdavid @aldonogueira @GIMP you can try https://gitlab.com/distributopia/share-connect-support for sharing links, they have it for some softwares :)
@patdavid nice, but when will they start to move to GTK 3? 😇
@patdavid I actually knew that, but it's a bit of a shame that the one of the most prominent GTK+ apps is still using GTK+2.
What's even more of a shame is that Gnome needs to be rewritten in GTK+4 before they can tackle significant issues. Currently the whole session is a single CPU thread, and it takes down everything with it if the thread crashes in Wayland.
I've done a clean install of v2.10 (uninstalled v2.8 and the #GIMP extensions pack. installed 2.10 then re-installed the extensions pack - got a warning it was incompatible, but did I want to try anyway - it installed, but on starting GIMP, I get a couple of dozen warning dialogues pop up, then when it does start, virtually none of the extensions have installed.
Would it work if I installed 2.10 over the top of 2.8 with the pack installed, or do the extensions need updating?
@mancavgeek The extensions likely need updating. I would start by listing ones you find essential from the pack, and approaching their authors to see if they can update things for you (or check if there might be good alternatives available).
@patdavid Cheers - that was pretty much what I was thinking.
I'm probably going to reinstall 2.8 and the extensions pack, and run 2.8 and 2.10 side by side - I only really use them for this project, the only one that gets any major use on the other project is Save For Web, and I think I can play around with settings to replicate that - hopefully in a couple of weeks there will be some plugins come along.
@patdavid @GIMP Jeez, 2018 will really come as one of the most historic years for libre graphics software. Krita 4.0, Godot 3.0, Blender 2.8 (coming this year), Kdenlive refactored version (coming soon), and now Gimp 2.10, all super major releases ! I've never seen such a synchronized leap ! Are all the planets in the solar system aligned or what's going on ?
