Unfortunately updating gimp to 2.10 breaks mypaint. Until mypaint is updated to a version that uses the newer version of libmypaint, we will be unable to include gimp at this time as it will cause workflow difficulties with some of our userbase. Releasing gimp 2.10 as an SRU (so long as mypaint can be updated to 1.3 after its release) would be the best route. Another option is to encourage the snap version of gimp 2.10 once released for those who want/need it.
At this time, on behalf of the Ubuntu Studio team, we recommend no FFe for this case as it will break mypaint. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to gimp in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1759625 Title: FFe: Sync gimp 2.10.0~RC1-1 (universe) from Debian experimental (main) Status in gimp package in Ubuntu: New Bug description: Feature Freeze Justification ============================ gimp's last new stable series, 2.8, was released 6 years ago. The new series has years of work porting gimp to use gegl more completely, an integrated crash report tool, and many more improvements. The Gimp development team is so small that I do not expect there to be much support at all for gimp 2.8 any more. Future ====== If the final gimp 2.10 is not released before Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is, then we should do an SRU to update it then. The Gimp developers have announced that they will add features to future 2.10 releases so that users won't have to wait several years like this again. Gimp 3.0 will switch to gtk3 (or gtk4). Affected Flavors ================ Ubuntu Studio is the only flavor to include gimp by default.
