Here I would modfiy that because I use the gimp for all my image 
printing, so the 2.0 release needs to be able to link up with the 
newer gimp-print too. So far, that hasn't happened.  I assume it will 
by the time gimp-print is out in 5.0 final, and gimp in 2.0 final.

And because I've not run into anything that my limited gfx knowledge 
says needs fixed, I'm still at a self-compiled 1.2.3 here.

Cheers, Gene
