Well, lets clear it up:

- GIMP 1.2 is not longer maintained (even GIMP 2.0 isn't)
- there will be no changes to GIMP 1.2 anymore, and thus no further releases
- if you're still using 1.2, your're basically on your own

Compiling 2.2 yourself and testing it (if you don't have test cases, it
would be a good idea to make some up with the current setup) is the best
method to ensure it works fine. I'm actually a bit surprised that you'd rely
on others to test the software you're using - do you want to blame someone
else if it fails?

No. I'd only prefer to have a binary release for the OS I work on. Of course I'll compile and test it, but wouldn't be better if others would have tested it previously?

Anyway, I'd like to thank Manish for answering my questions.
