Hi everybody,

We've just finished up the camp here, and we thought it would be a good idea to
commemorate the occasion with a release.

There are quite a few changes in this release, so it is worthwhile to upgrade,
particularly if you had build problems with the mme code in the last release.

This is the latest in the development series of the GIMP. This will very soon be
a pre-release version for the GIMP 2.0, so all testing efforts are appreciated
to help us pin down some bugs.

As usual, tarballs are available at ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/1.3/1.3.18/.

Happy GIMPing,
Dave Neary.
