Gimp 2.8.2 Released, Install from PPA

Gimp 2.8.2 has been released with some new features and fixes.

  • Make tag matching always case-insensitive
  • Let the tile-cache-size default to half the physical memory
  • Mention that the image was exported in the close warning dialog
  • 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
  • Allow to use $(gimp_installation_dir) in config files
  • Fix remembering of JPEG load/save defaults
  • Lots of bug fixes
  • Translation updates
