We've just released GIMP 2.8.2, the first update to the new stable version of GIMP. The update brings several dozens of fixes to various issues of all scales.

Most notorious bugs fixed are: not being able to remember JPEG saving options, slow canvas redraw, not showing page setup options on Windows. There's also a workaround for the bug that used to cause showing incorrect file size values on Windows.

Additionally we did a lot of work to make a native build of GIMP for Mac a possibility. The official GIMP.app will be available soon. Windows installers of v2.8.2 will be available from the usual location shortly.

Beginning with this version we are also switching to a new versions numbering scheme. Final releases now always have even number of the micro version, and the versions in Git always have an odd number.

What is new in GIMP 2.8.2

Core:

-- Make tag matching always case-insensitive
-- Let the tile-cache-size default to half the physical memory

GUI:

-- Mention that the image was exported in the close warning dialog
-- Make sure popup windows appear on top on OSX
-- Allow file opening by dropping to the OSX dock
-- Fix the visibility logic of the export/overwrite menu items
-- Remove all "Use GEGL" menu items, they only add bugs and zero function
-- Improve performance of display filters, especially color management
-- Fix the image window title to comply with the save/export spec
and use the same image name everywhere, not only in the title
-- Fix positioning of pasted/dropped stuff to be more reasonable

Libgimp:

-- Move gimpdir and thumbnails to proper locations on OSX
-- Implement relocation on OSX
-- Allow to use $(gimp_installation_dir) in config files

Plug-ins:

-- Fix remembering of JPEG load/save defaults
-- Revive the page setup dialog on Windows

Source and build system:
