I have just installed Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS to my netbook, and I am pleasantly surprised that the iPhone support and recognition has greatly improved (perhaps I can dare to dump OS/X?). It now recognises and mounts my Canon Power Shot G9 as well.
Yet it one wonders why it is taking so long to update Gimp to 2.8?
I keep checking the updates, and nothing. The version with 12.04.1 LTS, is Gimp 2.6.
I'm sure I'm not the only one wanting this to be in the update stream.
Please, and thank you, Ubuntu
