> ====================================================
> Core:
>  - Add gimp-scratch allocator, a fast memory allocator (on the order
>    of magnitude of alloca()), suitable for small (up to a few 
>    megabytes), short-lived (usually, bound to the current stack-
>    frame) allocations.
>    Unlike alloca(), gimp-scratch doesn't use the stack, and is 
>    therefore safer, and will also serve bigger requests, by falling-
>    back to malloc().
>  - In gimp_drawable_transform_buffer_affine(), avoid modifying the
>    clipping mode when transforming layer masks, since this function
>    is used (among other things) to transform layer masks together with
>    their layer, in which case they should use the same clipping mode
>    as the layer. This fixes a regression introduced by commit  
>    2ae823ba, causing layer masks to be transformed with a mismatched 
>    clipping mode during layer transforms, leading to discrepencies 
>    between the transformed layer and the transformed mask.
>  - Moved swap/cache and temporary files out the GIMP user config dir 
>    and added new config file substitutions ${gimp_cache_dir} and
>    ${gimp_temp_dir}.
>  - Pass the GEGL tile-cache size, swap path, and thread-count to plug-
>    ins as part of their config, and have libgimp set the plug-in's 
>    GeglConfig accordingly upon initialization.
>  - Layer groups are now rendered in bigger chunks rather than tile-by-
>    tile (which used to pretty much eliminate multithreading for 
>    groups), which improves the rendering speed.
>  - Make saving/exporting files more robust to errors. In particular if
>    an error occurs during the process (be it a bug, a memory error, or
>    anything else), GIMP won't overwrite anymore any existing file with
>    incomplete contents, so that you won't end up with no valid files 
>    at all.
>  - Fix a regression on support of various graphics tablet.
>  - Remove the "Edit -> Fade..." feature: it makes GIMP use two buffers
>    instead of one (east into system resources), it's broken in 2.10, 
>    and we can make the UX better for filters.
>  - New generic canvas modifier 'Alt + middle click' allowing to pick
>    layers by clicking on pixels. The available layers will be looped
>    through (starting from the upper one) while Alt key is hold and the
>    picked layer name will be temporarily displayed in the status bar.
>  - When clearing a channel, do nothing if the channel is already 
>    empty; otherwise, align the cleared rectangle to the channel 
>    buffer's tile grid, so that all affected tiles are dropped, rather 
>    than zeroed.
>    Furthermore, only update the affected region of the channel.
>  - Brush and pattern saving logics has been moved to core code 
>    (instead of plug-in).
>  - Clipboard brushes and pattern can now be duplicated.
>  - Parametric brushes are now 32-bit float to avoid posterization on
>    large brushes.
>    Note: raster brushes are still 8-bit and plug-ins only have access
>    to 8-bit versions of high-precision brushes/patterns. New API will
>    be required to handle high-precision data.
>  - On-canvas preview while editing a color in the colormap of an
>    indexed image.
> User interface:
>  - Enabled HiDPI/Retina support for the GTK2/OSX build, fixes blurry 
>    icons.

>    when scaling up or down.
>  - In the Healing tool, "Sample merged" now also work for the target
>    pixels, allowing to draw in empty layers.

>  - Add DDS loading/exporting plug-in originally developed by Shawn 
>    Kirst and Arne Reuter.
>  - Rename the Guillotine plug-in to Slice Using Guides.
>  - Add a new option saving a color profile when exporting PNG, JPEG, 
>    TIFF. Always save it when exporting to PSD.
>  - Remove the "Advanced" expanders from the PNG and TIFF export 
>    dialogs.
>  - Full rewrite of the Spyrogimp plug-in with much more options and
>    better interaction.
>  - Indexed TIFF with alpha channel now supported.
> Filters:
>  - Add on-canvas GUI (simple lines) for circular, linear, and zoom 
>    motion blur.
> Help:
>  - Link to the bugtracker directly from the Help menu, also link to 
>    the wiki and the roadmap. Remove the link to currently disabled
>    registry.gimp.org.
> Installers:
>  - Windows: proper fix for libthai to stop GIMP from crashing in the
>    Thai locale. 
> Translations:
>  - Czech, Danish, French, Italian, Japanese, Marathi, Polish, Russian,
>    Spanish, Swedish, Ukrainian.
> Build:
>  - Bumping GTK+ dependency to the micro update GTK+ 2.24.32 to handle
>    several bugs on Windows (broken shortcuts on non-latin layouts and
>    broken vector icons).
