total and processed pixel counts used for reporting progress, to
avoid overflowing when applying an operation to a large image.
- In GimpFilterTool and gimp_drawable_apply_operation(), use
gimp_drawable_filter_set_add_alpha() to add an alpha channel
when applying an operation that specifies "needs-alpha"
to a drawable that can have alpha.
- In GimpFilterTool, move all the drawable-filter option setup to a
new gimp_filter_tool_update_filter() function, and call it whenever
the drawable-filter's options need to be updated. This avoids
duplicating logic in various places.
- Improve the efficiency of decoding RLE data when loading ABR
brushes, by reading entire scanlines into a buffer all-at-once,
instead of reading the stream byte-by-byte.
- GIMP now optionally phones home to find out if there's a new version
available and then tells the user if there is one indeed. It also
keeps track of the installer revision and then warns if there's
a newer installer available. This can be disabled in Preferences.
In that case, users still have the option to manually check for
an update via the About dialog. The feature can be disabled entirely
with the '--disable-check-update' configure switch.

are available simultaneously. In this mode, the inner and outer
regions of the item are used for moving and rotation, respectively,
and the vanishing point is controlled through through a handle.
- Transform tools now respect the Clip option and update the canvas
preview accordingly.
- New "Composited preview" option allows respecting layer's blending
mode and position in the layer stack rather than rendering it as
an overlay on top of the overall layer stack. This simplifies

the composited preview synchronously. This reduces the lag for
painting the preview, but can harm responsiveness for bigger images,
where rendering the preview is slow.
- Add a new "Preview linked items" option to the transform-grid
tools. When this option is enabled, together with composited
previews, the transform preview includes all linked layers and
channels when transforming a layer/channel. Paths are currently
- New widget called GimpPivotSelector, a 3x3 grid of toggle buttons,
is now used for selecting a natural pivot position (e.g. for
a transform) relative to an item: its center, its corners, and the
midpoints of its edges. Currently used in Rotate and 3D Transform
- Add "Show all" support to the Bucket Fill tool in line-art mode
- Color picker and sample points now support displaying vlaues in Yu'v'
(CIE 1976 UCS) color space.
- The Symmetry Painting dock now has an "Enable reflection" option
that allows painting patterns resembling a kaleidoscope.
- Transform clipping is temporarily disabled for layer groups.
No preview other than 'Adjust' works anyway. This will be fixed
later on.
- Now that painting is done in a separate thread, the display update
rate has a far smaller impact on it. Increase the GimpDisplay
update rate, which handles image updates, to 60 FPS, and the
GimpDrawTool update rate to 120 FPS. In particular, the latter
change makes the brush outline motion much smoother.
- Add a new "Snap brush outline to stroke" toggle to the "Image
Windows" preferences page. When enabled, the brush outline in
paint tools snaps to the individual dabs while painting, which is
how it worked before version 2.10.16. Disable the option by default.
This seems to be what most other programs are doing, and it does
give paitning a smoother feel.
- The Warp Transform tool now respects settings for painting tools:
showing the brush outline, snapping to dabs, and showing the paint
tool cursor.
- Tools are now logically grouped in the toolbox by default. Users
can customize the groups to their liking or disable this feature
altogether in the Preferences dialog (Interface / Toolbox page).
- New opt-out compact style for sliders with revamped interaction.
The widget uses a narrower layout, and the different upper/lower-half
behavior is gone. Instead, the behavior depends on the mouse button
