This is an unstable development version of the GNU Image Manipulation Program. Please realize that this is just a snapshot of the development tree. We are working hard towards GIMP 2.8, the next stable release. GIMP 2.7 is in no way a final product. A lot of new features are incomplete and some things may even be completely broken. If you need to get work done, please use the stable version, GIMP 2.6.

You can check what is new in GIMP 2.7 from here

Note:- GIMP 2.7 is still in development so this is not recommended for production machines

    10x! GIMP is awesome, as for me, its even more handy than Photoshop. I usually use Ubuntu Tweak to update gimp

    Gimp is great stuff. I will certainly be keeping it despite the droppage in Lucid.
