[Gimp-developer] ANNOUNCE: GIMP 2.7.5 released


GIMP 2.7.5 has been released. This is the last development snapshot in
the unstable 2.7 series that leads to 2.8. Only release candidates and
the 2.8 release will follow.

For a complete list of changes since 2.7.4 please see the "Changes"
section below. Also see the release notes of the 2.7 series at

Please note that the upcoming v2.8 also introduces a huge amount of
API deprecations and additions that have the potential to break
existing 3rd party scripts and plug-ins. Please file bugs for all
plug-ins and scripts that do work in v2.6, but don't work in 2.7.5. A
migration guide for developers will be provided when v2.8 is out.
