In order to ensure I have the latest version of GIMP, should I uninstall 
previous versions before downloading and installing the most recent version?

I currently have 2.8.4 on my computers.

Whether you need to uninstall previous versions probably depends on what operating system you are running. On Linux your package manager takes care of making sure there are no file clashes between the old and new versions.

On Windows, at least for Partha's builds (http://www.partha.com/, right-hand column notes - Partha has 2.8.14 available for 64-bit Windows), yes you should uninstall the old version (the portable version can be run without interfering with previous installations).

If you have a lot of custom settings in your configuration folder, you might want to make a backup of the config folder. People running GIMP on Windows would hopefully have more details.

returning this to you per your posted instructions although i find it
impossible to completely comply as i do not have possession of many of the
copies.  if this was not your intention, you should post w/o the *stupid*
trailer, or stop using work related product for personal reasons.

Trailers such as the above do seem oddly out of place when posted to an open mailing list that's duplicated many times over on many servers.

But it's entirely possible that the OP uses GIMP at work and *for* work, so assumptions to the contrary aren't really warranted.

If someone else already answered the OP's original question, please excuse my two-cent's worth!
