I've had 2.7.1 running quite smoothly for a couple weeks now. I've yet to have a plugin problem, but it did take a minute to enable python (ok, 10 seconds, but I had to figure out how to do it first.)

Overall, I'd say this is one of the most stable alphas I've taken a stab at. Really loving layer groups and single window mode.
My favorite part, and the reason I've ditched 2.6.9 for it, was brush dynamics. I really like the implementation of it and being able to create new dynamics.

I am just trying to be helpful in informing other members of GIMPs new versions when they become available.

It works for me but i was really looking forward to the single window mode. I watched the review of it on meethegimp and the buttons that toggle it aren't there on mine.

PS: Rod keep doing it, it's helpful.

Anyone using this from the PPA in linux? (https://launchpad.net/~matthaeus123)
I'm running 2.7.2 from there, and I'm having some minor problems with plugins.

When using GMIC and selecting a filter:

WARNING: Plug-In "gmic_gimp"
(~/.gimp-2.7/plug-ins/gmic_gimp)
called deprecated procedure 'gimp-drawable-is-valid'.
It should call 'gimp-item-is-valid' instead!

Everything is still working, just a warning in my error-console dock

A few other filters/scripts/plug-ins are reporting the same error, with one exception:

Gimpressionist just crashes. No reason, just a solid crash.

Yeah i decided to stick with 2.7.1 the way i set it up.
Now i'll just download stable versions.

I did dl 2.4.7 so i could check out the photo shop actions filter.
I seem to only be able to run 5-7 tops through my user/Gimp 2.4.7/scripts folder though.
I can't even get Photo shop actions to work with 2.6.10 (no matter how many ATN files are in that folder)
Got it to install there though.Just rename your console and exe to 2.4 and install Gimp-Sharp than rename the files back to 2.6 =)
Tried linking a path to 2.4.7 scripts and 2.6.10 scripts folders... nada =\
All the other plugins in Gimp-Sharp work well though in any Gimp versions.
Just having issues with the actions filter for some reason.
Either it won't run more than 5 PS ATN files (2.4.7) or its just not compatible.(2.6.10)
I might try to install it in 2.7.1 later and see what happens.

I'm sticking with 2.6.10 for now, I didn't like the way 2.7 looked and there was a problem with single window mode.

The only thing i dont like is that the window placement isnt remembered by Gimp on restart.
However when you close Gimp, if you de-select the open in single window mode option under the windows tab, then the program will save the image window placement upon close and reopening of the program, then you just have to put the tick back in to place the tools dialog back in place.This will probably be fixed in the 2.8 stable version.
