GIMP 2.8 has been released for general consumption after 2 long years of nail-biting, cursing and spousal abuse. This release is positively epic because not only does it bring with it a ton of hype, it brings with it the most useful feature updates in it’s long and storied history.
We’d reported a couple of months ago on the impending release and how close we were getting to an official build. Our report was met with a lot of doubt from readers, and rightly so. GIMP 2.8 seemed to be baking in an oven that was not on. Well, regardless of that doubt, we are proud to announce that this actual release comes in front of our own reported forecast. Thank you GIMP team!
