The release notes for 2.8 I found suggest that it isn't possible to
install 2.8 alongside 2.6 in Windows (7 x64 in my case) at least using
the pre-built windows installer?
Reason for asking is that there are a number of 2.6 plug-ins I need, and
looking at the GIMP plug-in repository few indicate 2.8 compatibility.
So I would need to test them myself but if they don't work I would go
back to 2.6, at least for some tasks.
