What do you think about the new Gimp version: 2.6.1???
Don't know....haven't got it yet...lol
I don't know how to compile...stuff
So I just wait...and wait...and wait for the next version that comes with installer
I have 2.6.0. ??? I'm not really sure how I got it. I thought I installed 2.5.1! Is 2.6.1 any different than 2.6.0? I'll probably try to install it later if I remember.
Oh wait! I might have it on my lappy. It's running Windows. What is the Windows package version?
The installer version is already out.. check the news section.
The new version sure rocks! Though I came across some issues regarding window management. My windows (at first) seem to become too unresponsive due to the new implementation of better(?) window handling. But eventually I made my way out of that by working around and avoiding some maximizations done on my main canvass.
Prolly the best feature I like about the newest version of GIMP (2.6.1) is the capability to pan beyond the image border, which is very helpful for me since I do a lot of bezier curve manipulations and extended handles are sure pain in the ass with the older versions of GIMP since I have to zoom out the magnification by a great value just to "drag in" the handles.
I think i have 2.6.0 i must update! lol ill be back when i get it!
I have 2.6.0 as well. If you get it, will you tell me if there's anything different about it?
I guess I could just check the change log...
I just downloaded the portable application of GIMP 2.6.1 to my USB drive. I really like the way the entire menu is now on the image window and the tool box just follows with it when you minimize or open. The customizable zoom percentage is nice too. Maybe there are other things I haven't found yet, but the rest seems to be pretty much like 2.4. I don't understand why the GEGL operation is optional, but I notice that the control of gaussian blur is very superior and adjustable in a better way.
Will someone clarify what portable gimp is? I've heard alot of talk about it, but dont know what it is.
im guessing, since i never heard of it before, but have portable openoffice. but i think that basically u can download it and put it on a usb stick so u can use it on any comp even if it doesnt have openoffice. thing is, my brother told me openoffice portable only works on windows. >.>
sky-fyre is right....portable gimp is made so that you can take it and use it on other computers when away from your own. Here's a link if you want more information.
Putting portable gimp on a flash drive is also a great way to test a new version to make sure you really want to upgrade.
link doesnt work ...
sorry..try it now.
pft same as openoffice .. portable is only for windows >.>
This version is the bug fix of 2.6
I think is like 2.60 except some buggy was out )
So it's good update to 2.6.1
I think it stinks. I don't like the new window (what was the point of removing the menu when all they did was replace it with an image just taking up space?). I also hate the default way of handling windows. Luckily you can switch back... I thought. But when doing so a lot of problems arose. In short: Nothing works.
I love it. I thought I would miss 2.4 at first, but after a little while, I realized how much I like it.
Hmm, should i make the switch?
Yeah i hated it at first but its nice when you get used to it
