    As part of our tighter integration and involvement with the GIMP community we will start to announce new GIMP releases again in this forum category.

    So we are happy to announce a new version of GIMP: 2.8.12

    No new features were added but a lot of bugs were fixed.

    Downloads
    (currently only the source code / Linux version was released, we will follow up as soon as Windows/OSX builds have been released)


    Changelog
    Core:
    • OSX: Fix migration code for old GIMP directories
    • Fix brush sizes when used from plug-ins
    • Windows: Allow to Explorer-open files with UTF-8 characters in the filename
    • Make XCF loading more robust against broken files


    GUI:
    • Make sure the widget direction matches the GUI language
    • Remove the option to disable the warning when closing a modified image
    • Fix canvas overlay widgets (like the text options) for tablets
    • Make DND work between images in one dockable


    Libgimp:
    • Make gimp_image_get_name() return the string used for the image title


    Plug-ins:
    • Make script-fu-server more secure by running to 127.0.0.1 by default and add a warning about changing that IP. This breaks the procedure's API, but for security reasons.
    • Bring back proper script-fu translations


    General:
    • Massively clean up and fix the OSX build and bundle
    • Add Jenkins tutorial
    • Documentation updates
    • Bug fixes
    • Translation updates
