Stats for fun : was downloaded 150k times on Flathub () since GIMP 2.10.24 release (a month ago).
[Note: the i386/ARM (32-bit) stats correspond to older versions since we are unfortunately not able to build these anymore]

So apparently the on-canvas zoom with finger pinch in works on ! Soon coming in GIMP 2.99.6 (dev version).
Thanks Ahmed Hafiz for the feedback (Windows 10 20H2 - build 19042 / GIMP 2.99.5) !

Fun stuff. We merged canvas zooming in/out in through finger pinch gesture a few days ago. It works at least on Linux/Wayland (not X11 so far). We found none to test for Windows or macOS yet so I guess it will be the surprise for GIMP 2.99.6 dev release. 🤷😃

Screenshot of the new installer revision 3 contents. 👍

We officially published the new installer revision of 2.10.24 on Windows fixing the 2 issues aforementioned ! 😃

Thanks to people who tested !

Could anyone who had one of below issues test a augmented package for Windows + give feedback:
- Very slow open/save/export dialogs (dozens of seconds if not minutes to appear)
- Non functional Wacom Airbrush finger wheel

Build to test:

For users on : if you lost your flatpak extensions (@gmic and others) after last update, reinstall them with the //2-40 branch. For instance to reinstall G'MIC on latest GIMP flatpak :

flatpak install --user org.gimp.GIMP.Plugin.GMic//2-40

P.S.: --user is not necessarily needed. This might work fine too:

flatpak install org.gimp.GIMP.Plugin.GMic//2-40

Just published a Patreon news about GIMP 2.10.24 release, also talking about the awesome team atmosphere of and finally some memory lane nostalgia 💭 on how we became small contributors ourselves in 2012 up to being co-maintainers today.


You've been waiting for it: new release of stable branch!

As usual, illustration courtesy of Aryeom Han, director of @zemarmot, because now Wilber is learning map-creation (cf. the news)!

Also first release where Jehan is officially co-maintainer (proud 😳).

Our last development report about GUI experiments on new ways to store layer selections and multi-selecting layers by patterns in :

For anyone wondering, it has now been pushed. We only had positive feedbacks (i.e. it doesn't make any problem for guide deletion usability) from testers, none negative. So off-canvas guides are now in and will be available in our next dev release: 2.99.6 ! 😃

Wow giving you this link reminded me of this physical Frame with picture Acrylic painting titled "Wilber Offline, Autumn" which Aryeom Han did back in 2015.
It was auctioned at @lgm (money was donated to ). I wonder where this Wilber painting is nowadays… 🛅 Fun memories! 💭

By the way, we also made snap to guide, grid and path work off-canvas now (pushed last night).

Now that off-canvas viewing is possible (since 2.10.14), we are progressively making working off-canvas just as easy as in-canvas.

Our Wilber&Co. strip from back then:

So we implemented the ability to position guides off-canvas in . Deleting a guide can still be done by dragging the guide off-viewport (though not off-canvas but within viewport).
We will test a bit this in production before pushing to main code.

When one of our Wilber & Co. comic strip is edited by a bug reporter to advertize their wanted change in . 🤣
We love it !

Would be fun if these become memes. CC by-sa licensed by the way, so feel free to have fun too with these comics ! 😉

Some good points among :

Nice little README on plug-in development for (using advanced Python libraries and environment) **and** sandboxing. Sharing for everyone who wants to understand a bit more on how all these technologies interact with one another. 👍 />

For creators with : we just published a revision 3 of the build and so far, feedbacks are great (slowness issues nearly gone).


Thanks again a lot to Des McGuinness, our newer macOS contributor !
