I've been wanting to check out Gimp 2.8 since I read the news release, and
finally took some time to build it on my machine. It is not certain when the
FreeBSD packages and ports will be updated and tested and published. There have
been some people who have built it by updating their system packages, but I
decided to build it in a jail chroot to avoid possibly royally dorking up my
system. It runs through a 'remote' connection to Xorg server (same machine).
However I do want to spend some more time investigating ways to safely 'break
it out of jail'. ;-)
If you are interested in trying my alternate setup on your FreeBSD machine I
have written some basic instructions at the following URL.
Have a great weekend.
