we do allow some new features here, if they are not too invasive.
Otherwise, this branch is only for bug-fixes.
Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.10.2 to GIMP 2.10.4
===================================================
......@@ -27,47 +28,50 @@ User Interface:
- The Dashboard dockable dialog now has a 'Memory' group that shows
memory-usage information: the currently used memory size, the
available physical memory size, and the total physical memory size.
It can also show the tile-cache size, for comparison against the
other memory stats. Note that the upper-bound of the meter is the
physical memory size, so the memory usage may be over 100% when GIMP
uses the swap.
- The Dashboard dockable dialog now has "read" and "written" fields
in the dashboard swap group, which report the total amount of data
available physical memory size, and the total physical memory
size. It can also show the tile-cache size, for comparison
against the other memory stats. Note that the upper-bound of the
meter is the physical memory size, so the memory usage may be over
100% when GIMP uses the swap.
- The Dashboard dockable dialog now has "read" and "written" fields in
the dashboard swap group, which report the total amount of data
read-from/written-to the tile swap, respetively. Additionally, the
swap busy indicator (used as the meter's LED) has been improved, so
that it's active whenever data has been read-from/written-to the swap
during the last sampling interval, rather than at the point of sampling.
- Fonts can now be tagged. The user interface is the same as for brushes,
patterns etc.

- Some icons fixed: larger spacing between broken chains and
gimp-tool-ellipse-select made symmetrical.
Usability:
- When a plug-in cannot be applied to an image because of mismatch in image
types (e.g. layer has no alpha or image is greyscale), GIMP now displays
a message listing supported image types for this plug-in.

Tools:
- The Measurement tool now has an "Auto straighten" option allowing to
rotate the active drawable (layer, channel…) so that the measurement
line is used as horizon. As other transform tools, the feature will
work on linked drawables as well.
- The Smudge tool now paints correctly on images with a color profile
other than the GIMP's built-in one.

Build:

in HiDPI-aware mode.

- Put back compatibility DLLs for really old plugins.
- Install binary tool `gimp-test-clipboard` on the system to allow
people to help us debug clipboard bugs.
- --enable-bundled-mypaint-brushes renamed --enable-relocatable-bundle
and also make WMF fonts looked up on the runtime prefix of GIMP
(instead of the build-time path) when this build option was set.

that GIMP doesn't currently support, and therefore can't render
correctly, such as adjustment layers. When loading the merged image

as channels, paths, and guides, while still loading metadata. This
option is currently exposed as an additional file type
