a new development snapshot of GIMP 2.1 is now available from
ftp.gimp.org and it's mirrors:
This is not yet the awaited pre-release since we haven't yet sorted
out the last changes we will need to do. We are however feature and
string frozen now. Or at least we will try to keep string changes and
new features to a minimum so that we can get out the first pre-release
for 2.2 out by the end of this month.
Please note that you cannot install gimp-2.1 side-by-side with
gimp-2.0 into the same prefix. A number of files will clash, so please
use a separate prefix to install this development version! For
details, please read the file INSTALL.
Please help us to get 2.2 out soon by testing this release. Please
also have a look at the documentation files we distribute with the
tarball, read the man-pages and let us know what needs updating for
2.2. We need your contributions to make 2.2 happen soon and to make it
