Gimp 2.8 is out! | PPA Ubuntu
Written by Bill Toulas on May 3, 2012. Posted in News, Software

Quote:


Gimp is one of the most important tools we Linux users have in our hands being a powerful application that covers the specialized needs of photo manipulators. It may not be perfect, or as good as other commercial applications, but it is getting better and better with every release and is already very powerful and useful. It is natural that the linux world directs its attention to it every time a new major release comes out and this time it is the “majorest” ever!

Quote:


After 3.5 years of exciting work, the developers of Gimp announced today the release of the long awaited 2.8 version that brings many new things to be happy about.

The most notable of all is the Single window mode option that users can choose over the default multi window mode. This is something that many people have been asking for a long time and it is finally here making things more handy and efficient.



Except for this there have been a ton of changes, improvements and additions of new features and you can read all about them on the release notes. Among them you will find other long anticipated features like layer groups, on-canvas text editing and advanced brush dynamics.

Currently version 2.8 is only available for the GNU/Linux platform but builds for Windows and Mac will soon be available too. If you don’t want to wait for your distribution to make a package for Gimp 2.8 available, proceed and download the source by pressing this button.

If you want to install Gimp2.8 in Ubuntu and LinuxMint you can use the following PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa: otto-kesselgulasch/gimp
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gimp
