    Gimp 2.8 final source is available

    ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.8/

    Hasn't been officially announced yet

    Looks like 2.10 will be more of a landmark though with everything converted to GEGL

    Looks like a great release -- lots of nice new features. Hopefully it makes it to 12.04 backports soon!

    Have anyone here tried Gimp 2.8 in KDE? When I do something to the image, the toolbox and layer dialogues disappear, and I have click on them from the panel or the menu in order to bring them up again.

    They don't disappear when I enable Single-Window mode, though.

    Wow, I completely forgot about the 2.8 release! I'm surprised it was delayed this long, but no matter, I got that unofficial build running just fine on Xubuntu; thanks for posting that convenient PPA link, philnux. The new single window mode is pretty sweet, and I love being able to group my paths now! w00t! GIMP just got easier to use, and now I'll have to update the install I have on Windows 7 once an installer is available for that too.

    Although it's kinda funny that the Update Manager decided to bug me with an officially supported 2.8 build from the Software Center mere minutes after installing it. Holy crap that was fast!
