Re: [Gimp-developer] ANNOUNCE: GIMP 2.10.12 released

Dear all,

AppImage packages for the 2.10.12 are also available from here: 

They should work on most of the common Linux distributions.

Two versions of the AppImage are provided, one with only the GIMP application , and a second one also 
including various popular plug-ins.

Best regards, Andrea

A few days late, but...

We just released GIMP 2.10.12, the sixth bugfix release in
the stable 2.10 series.

As announced before, stable GIMP 2.10.x is open for new
features that are not too invasive or change the API,
and we got some good new stuff for you this time, too.

For a complete list of changes since 2.10.10 please see the
"Changes" section below.

There is also a release announcement on

Happy GIMPing,


 GIMP 2.10.12 is available from:

Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.10.10 to GIMP 2.10.12


 - Add an "Incremental" option to the Dodge/Burn tool, which,
   similarly to the Paintbrush, Pencil, and Eraser tools, applies the
   effect incrementally as the pointer moves.
 - Curves now have a concept of smooth vs corner points: smooth
   points produce a smooth curve, while corner points produce a sharp
   curve (previously, all points were smooth).
 - Search the user font directory path on Windows (since Windows 10,
   non-admin users have the ability to install fonts). This is only a
   temporary hack until fontconfig adds proper upstream support:
 - In gimp_brush_core_get_paint_buffer(), when allocating a new paint
   buffer, clear the old buffer *before* allocating the new one, to
   reduce the amount of simultaneously allocated memory.
 - In GimpPaintbrush, avoid refilling the paint buffer at each dab if
   the paint color/pixmap hasn't changed, hence allowing faster
   painting in some specific cases.
 - Add hygon cpu detection and enable MMX/SSE support.
 - Add a GimpSymmetry::get_transform() virtual function and a
   corresponding gimp_symmetry_get_transform() function which return
   the brush transform corresponding to a given symmetry stroke in
   terms of the rotation angle and reflection flag (in contrast to
   gimp_symmetry_get_operation() which returns the same transforation
   in terms of a GeglNode). This allows us to simplify, fix (artifact
   bugs, etc.), and improve the painting-code performance for several
   symmetry painting cases.
 - New gimp-brush-pipe-spacing parasite set by core code to preserve
   GIH brush's spacing across reloads.
 - Add a new Offset filter tool, as a front-end to gimp:offset. The
   tool replaces, and provides the same interface as the drawable-
   offset dialog while also providing live preview and on-canvas


 - Exported profile and data format strategy updated in several file

   * When not saving a profile, we always export as sRGB data, as most
     viewers would not display the image properly otherwise.
   * When saving a profile:
       * If a profile was manually assigned, we always export to the
         assigned format, hence pixel data is converted accordingly,
        whatever the work format.
       * If no profile was assigned:
           * If the export format support high-bit depth, we export
             the work format as-is.
           * If the export format is 8-bit max, we convert the work
             format to sRGB, except if the work format is 8-bit

   The following plug-ins were updated: JPEG, PNG, TIFF and WebP.

 - TIFF plug-in now supports layer export.
 - Add accelerator on "Save color _profile" item in JPEG export so
   that all items in the dialog have keyboard accelerators.
 - Add a "Save color profile" checkbox in WebP export and remove the
   "Advanced Options" expander (all metadata and profile writing
   options are now directly visible).
 - Process cases of non-conformant TIFF file with extra channels
   while ExtraSamples is not set by assuming the first extra channel
   is a non-premultiplied alpha channel and outputting a warning. In
   the future, this should be updated further by a dialog asking what
   to do with the non-defined dialog (consider as premultiplied or
   non-premultiplied alpha channel, or just save as extra channels).


 - Add input/output spin-buttons to the Curves tool, which allow
   setting the selected point's coordinates numerically. When the
   image precision is greater than 8-bpc, use a 0.00-100.00 range for 
   the point-coordinate spin-buttons instead of a 0-255 range.
 - In the Curves tool, allow changing the curve's point types (cf. new
   curve corner points in Core section). Corner points are displayed
   with a diamond shape instead of a circle.
 - Free Select tool now creates a selection as soon as the polygon is
   closed. This selection is updated when the polygon, or the relevant
   tool-options, change, similarly to GimpRectangleSelectTool.
 - Derive GimpEraser from GimpPaintbrush, instead of directly from
   This allows GimpEraser to reuse the paint-buffer content across
   dabs, improving performance.
 - Allow moving an intersecting pair of guides with the Move tool.

User interface:

 - In GimpCurveView, when dragging an existing curve point, don't
   immediately move the point to the cursor position upon button
   press, but rather move it relative to its current position as the
   cursor moves. This allows selecting a point without moving it, and
   adjusting its position more easily.
 - when the cursor hovers above a point in GimpCurveView, or when
   dragging a point, have the coordinate indicator show the point's
   position, rather than the cursor's.
 - In GimpCurveView, when holding down Ctrl while adding/dragging a
   point, snap the y-coordinate to the original curve (at the start
   of the drag). This is particularly useful for adding points along
   the curve.
 - In GimpDashboard, don't show legend for groups with no meter.
 - Add a tile-alloc-total variable to the dashboard's memory and misc
   groups, showing the total amount of memory used by the tile
 - Add a "Save Keyboard Shortcuts Now" button to the Configure
   Keyboard Shortcuts dialog.


 - Windows: enable InnoSetup "unofficial" translations. Otherwise we
   had a bunch of wasted work from our translators of several
   languages whose translations were never used in the installer.


  - 12 translations were updated: Catalan, Chinese, French, German,
    Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish
    and Turkish.
