We are releasing GIMP 2.8.22 with various bug fixes.
GIMP 2.8.20 packages for macOS and Microsoft Windows are available now.
We have just released the second development version of GIMP in the 2.9.x series. GIMP 2.9.4 features revamped look and feel, major improvements in color management, as well as production-ready MyPaint Brush tool, symmetric painting, and split preview for GEGL-based filters.
This is the GIMP project’s official statement on SourceForge’s actions in regard to “abandoned” projects on their service.
