    Hi,

    GIMP 2.8.0-RC1 has been released. This is the first release candidate
    of the upcoming stable 2.8 release.

    Running this release for the first time will create a new
    ~/.gimp-2.8 directory in your home directory, and will migrate your
    GIMP 2.6 settings. Please report any issues you encounter during
    settings migration, or later with the migrated settings.

    For a complete list of changes since 2.7.5 please see the "Changes"
    section below. Also see the release notes of the 2.7 series at

    I am currently using RC1 for Windows 32 bit.
    It runs very nicely, and older plugins do work.

    I was actually thinking of submitting it to the developers for a possible splash for the final release.
    Thanks for your kind comments on it. :)
