This is the page and details of the packages.
Instructions are on the page but I advise uninstalling your existing Gimp 2.8
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp-edge
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gimp
Note: Unlike Gimp 2.8 the Gimp profile is ~/.config/GIMP/2.9
I run this in a kubuntu 16.04 64 bit - no real problems
