Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.10.0 RC2 to GIMP 2.10.0


  - CLI option --show-playground visible in --help.
  - Sample point dockable now works with more than 4 sample points.
  - Various warnings removed, multi-threading officially not
    "experimental" anymore…
  - Various fill and fade operations now use the current paint
    composite mode, allowing for instance filling to paint over
    transparent areas.
  - Default layer and paint modes are now Normal (instead of Legacy).
  - Be smarter about layer modes for new layers.
  - Get rid of the remaining places that were using the NORMAL_LEGACY
    mode by default (painting, some more).
  - Improve painting speed even more by even more evil C++.
  - Flipping drawables is much faster because it's now working
  - Gradient rendering is now much faster, using a cache.


  - Ripple plugin removed, compat PDB-API "plug-in-ripple" added


  - New procedure: gimp-item-transform-translate.
  - Make gimp-item-transform-* transform linked items too.
  - Deprecate gimp-color-balance and gimp-layer-translate.

Assets / Resources:

  - New "Fun" category for brushes (moving the "Pepper" there, which
    also gets improved resolution), and adding Wilber and GEGL brushes.
  - "Structure" brush obsoleted.
  - 5 new and more serious brushes.


  - 6 translations were updated: Catalan, Danish, Finnish, Korean,
    Polish, Swedish.
