GIMP 2.6 ReleasedEnselic writes "The GIMP developers are proud to announce the release of GIMP 2.6. The release notes starts with:
GIMP 2.6 is an important release from a development point of view. It features changes to the user interface addressing some often received complaints, and a tentative integration of GEGL, the graph based image processing library that will eventually bring high bit-depth and non-destructive editing to GIMP.
and goes on with saying that the toolbox menubar has been removed, that the toolbox and docks now are utility windows, that it is now possible to pan beyond the image border, that the freehand select tool has been enhanced to support polygonal selections, and much more."
