GIMP 2.1 includes the following enhancements:
- Major user interface improvements.
* Work has begun to make the GIMP user interface comply better with
the GNOME HIG. This is an ongoing effort and the interface is still
inconsistent at the moment.
* Large parts of the GIMP user interface have been changed to
comply better with the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines. This is
an ongoing effort and the interface may still be inconsistent in
a few places.
* Users are now allowed to clear the undo history.
* Pixels are now considered image units; this simplifies the handling of
* The unit to be used for the rulers and the coordinates display is now
a display property and can be changed in the statusbar of the image
* New widgets and frameworks provided by GTK+ 2.4 are used; this means
+ uses the new GtkFileChooser dialog, vastly improving the file dialogs.
+ includes port of menus to GtkUIManager, which creates all core menus
from XML files at runtime. This means that menu items can be rearranged

+ adds replacement widgets based on GtkComboBox for most uses of
GtkOptionMenu (GimpUnitMenu remains to be ported)
* adds GimpContainerEntry, a GtkEntry with completion based on
the contents of a GimpContainer.
+ makes the order and visibility of tools in the toolbox configurable
+ allows keeping toolbox and dock windows above other windows (if the WM
supports this hint)
* The toolbox now has an optional preview of the active image.

the PDB.
- Some changes to plug-ins.
* Plug-ins can now register the same procedures in multiple places (the
API to register menu entries has been changed in a backward-compatible
* Plug-ins can now optionally register a menu icon.
* File plug-ins can now register a mime-type.
* All plug-in dialogs have been reviewed and changed to make them
comply better with the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines.
* The obsolete AlienMap and GIcon plug-ins were removed. AlienMap 2 does
everything than AlienMap did, and the GIMP-specific GIcon format has not
been used by anything for quite some time now.
* A plug-in to load and save windows icon files has been added.

The GIMP: The GNU Image Manipulation Program
This is the development branch of The GIMP. Here's where new features
are being added. Somewhen this summer the next stable GIMP release,
GIMP 2.2, will emerge out of this.
GIMP 2.2, will emerge out of this. This is an early development
snapshot, there are bugs and quite some loose ends.
Since the plug-in API of GIMP 2.2 will be compatible with GIMP 2.0,
2.2 is supposed to install itself into the gimp-2.0 directories. It is
thus not possible to install this development version into the same
prefix with GIMP 2.0. A number of files will clash, so please use a
separate prefix to install this development version.
Please do not distribute binary packages of gimp-2.1!
If you want to hack on The GIMP, please read the file HACKING. For
detailed installation instructions, see the file INSTALL.
