Installation instructions for GIMP 2.2
--------------------------------------
There are some basic steps to building and installing this development
version of The GIMP.
There are some basic steps to building and installing The GIMP.
GIMP 2.2 replaces GIMP 2.0. It is advised that you uninstall GIMP 2.0
before installing GIMP 2.2. If you want to keep GIMP 2.0 installed in
parallel to GIMP 2.2, you have to choose a separate prefix which is
not in your default library search path.
GIMP 2.2 is fully backward compatible to GIMP 2.0. Plug-ins and
scripts written for GIMP 2.0 will continue to work and don't need to
be changed nor recompiled to be used with GIMP 2.2.
Please do not install this pre-releae of GIMP 2.2 into the same prefix
as GIMP 2.0. It would overwrite most of the GIMP 2.0 installation. To

The GNU Image Manipulation Program Version 2.2
----------------------------------------------
This is a preview release of GIMP 2.2. This is not yet the final 2.2.0
release which will replace GIMP 2.0 as the stable GIMP version. This
code hasn't seen a lot of testing yet so there are certainly bugs. If
you find any, make sure you report them at bugzilla.gnome.org (after
checking that it isn't reported already).
This is version 2.2 of The GIMP. Version 2.2 is an update on GIMP 2.0.
GIMP 2.2 is fully backward compatible to GIMP 2.0. Plug-ins and
scripts written for GIMP 2.0 will continue to work and don't need to
be changed nor recompiled to be used with GIMP 2.2. We do however
hope that plug-in authors will update their plug-ins for GIMP 2.2 and
adapt the GUI changes we did with this version.
Please follow the installation instructions in INSTALL.
Overview of Changes in GIMP 2.2.0 (since 2.2-pre2 was released)

Overview of Changes in GIMP 2.2-pre2
====================================
......
THIS IS A PREVIEW RELEASE FOR TESTING PURPOSES
==============================================
This is a preview release of GIMP 2.2 which will replace GIMP 2.0 as
the stable GIMP. This is not yet the final release but it should have
all the features that 2.2.0 will have. This code hasn't seen a lot of
testing yet so there are certainly bugs. If you find any, make sure
you report them at bugzilla.gnome.org (after checking that it isn't
reported already).
Please do not install this pre-releae of GIMP 2.2 into the same prefix
as GIMP 2.0. It would overwrite most of the GIMP 2.0 installation. To
install in parallel to 2.0, please use a different prefix which is not
in your default library search path. If you wish to replace GIMP 2.0
with this pre-release, then please remove the GIMP 2.0 installation
before installing this software.
The GIMP 2.2 plug-in API is fully backward compatible to GIMP 2.0.
Plug-ins for GIMP 2.0 should continue to work and don't need to be
recompiled. We do however hope that plug-in authors will update their
plug-ins for GIMP 2.2 and adapt the GUI changes we did with this
version.
It might turn out that we have to do some late changes to the newly
added API before the final 2.2.0 release, so don't consider the API
strictly frozen yet. The API is however guaranteed to be backward
compatible (source and binary) with the GIMP 2.0 API. If you find that
your 2.0 plug-in break when used with the GIMP 2.2 libraries, or if
you cannot compile a GIMP 2.0 plug-in against the GIMP 2.2 header
files, please report that as a bug.

This code has already seen quite some testing but a lot has changed
since version GIMP 2.0 and we could very well have introduced new
bugs. If you find any , make sure you report them at bugzilla.gnome.org

The GIMP 2.2 API is guaranteed to be backward compatible (source and
