Hi all,

The next release in the development series of the GIMP, version
1.3.21, is now available for download from


or from one of the mirrors listed at http://gimp.org/download.html

This is an extra unstable release before we officially go into
pre-release mode, because there are still some outstanding API changes
to make for plug-in authors which we would like to set in stone for the
2.x series.

This is the most stable development release we have had to date, and
there are also a few very nice features which have been added since the
last release. So tell your friends, get testing, and keep those bug
reports coming in to http://bugzilla.gnome.org.

Happy GIMPing,
