we do support the Apple platform. The main reason to do the 2.2.15
release is that it contains a fix for a crash that occured only on the
Apple platform.

We don't provide any binaries at all. Packaging GIMP for specific
platforms is left to third-party packagers. If these packages are not
uptodate for a particular platform, then the user community of said
platform does obviously not work. It's sad to see that the Mac OS X
community is even worse than the Windows one when it comes to
misunderstanding the "free" in "Free Software.

Update it then. Aaron has made everything available that you need to
create an updated gimp.app package. All that is needed is a little bit
of your time.
