the 1.3 saga continues and episode 6 just appeared on


Please don't beat our new disk too hard and try one of the mirrors


This is a development version that might crash any second, so please
save often and don't use it for real work. However we believe that
stability and useability improved a lot so you might want to give this
version a try.

This release depends on the following libraries (or newer versions):

  glib 2.0.0
  pango 1.0.0 (with FT2 support)
  atk 1.0.0
  gtk+ 2.0.0
  libart 2.3.8

A couple of extra libraries are required for some of the plug-ins. You
know that already, so we are only going to list the new dependencies:

  gimp-print 4.2.0   for print support
  gtkhtml2 1.99.5    for the help browser
