Been using 2.9.3 in production all week. Let me first say that I am truly
astounded at the plethora of extra features that have been added, many many
of which will become staples in my workflow from now on. Everyone deserves
high praise for this release, it's been rock solid so far.

It seems the mesh transform tool is still freezing up GIMP (every time),
but apart from that, nothing has crashed, and it's like early x-mas times a
thousand to see all the features implemented and usable. So thanks again!
