Overview of Changes since 2.0
=============================
GIMP 2.2 includes the following enhancements:
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 quite
the GNOME HIG. This is an ongoing effort and the interface is still
inconsistent at the moment.
* Users are now allowed to clear the undo history.
* Pixels are now considered image units; this simplifies the handling of
units.
* 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 rearrainged by
users simply by editing the files.
+ uses a global accelerator table in all docks and image windows. This

+ uses a global accelerator table in all docks and image windows. This
means that a hotkey will do the same thing regardless of which dock
or image window you are using.
+ adds replacement widgets based on GtkComboBox for most uses of
GtkOptionMenu (GimpUnitMenu remains to be ported)
+ makes the order and visibility of tools in the toolbox configurable
(This effort has not yet been completed.)
+ allows keeping toolbox and dock windows above other windows (if the WM
supports this hint)
- 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
fashion.)
* Plug-ins can now optionally register a menu icon.
* File plug-ins can now register a mime-type.
* 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 quites some time now.
