    Yep! They finally pushed GIMP over the hump. Sure, it took them three years, but they got it right!

    IMO, GIMP 2.6 was seriously flawed. Technically, it was okay, but the user interface left a lot to be desired. 2.8 is a joy to use, by comparison.

    It'll be interesting to see where it goes from here...

    Thanks, just installed 2.8 on 12.04 and it works great.

    The "Single-Window Mode" is excellent; maybe now I'll ditch photoshop w/wine!

    I was excited, because I like my development releases to be free of all ppa's, so i've been waiting and waiting. Finally!

    Our pennies have now been discontinued in Canada so I thought I would put up a cameo in memory of the 'penny' using Gimp 2.8.0 .

    I wish the U.S. would retire its pennies. The lousy things cost more to produce than they're worth.

    Re: GiMP 2.8.0?

    The "German PPA" crack quit working for me, when I downloaded the 12.10 chaintool.

    The task, then, became getting rid of all the remnants of the German crack... so I could install GiMP 2.6, and it wasn't easy.

    Once GiMP 2.8 hit the official repos, it was a simple matter to upgrade from 2.6 to 2.8.0.

    So, my recommendation is to forget the German crack -- purge it from your machine -- then, try installing GiMP 2.8.0 from the official repos.

    Just checked my Tomboy Notes:

    To fix gimp libbabl-0.0.so.0 error

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get purge gimp libgegl* libbabl*
    sudo apt-get install gimp
    sudo apt-get clean
    Gotta run. BBL!
