    I really though that wasnt possible because I searched for it before and was dissapointed it wasnt there.
    Ah well I will download it as soon as its on the gimp.org site (now it gives the original download link to 2.4.7)

    Thanks Gimper downloading 2.6 right now!

    I just checked gimp.org, it is on their site on the big download button now too.
    Though I cant find 'Preferences' anymore...

    Nevermind it is under the Tab 'Edit'
