The GNU Image Manipulation Program Version 2.3
----------------------------------------------
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.
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.
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
(after checking that it isn't reported already).
The GIMP 2.2 API is 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 is an unstable development version of GIMP. Please realize that
this is in no way a final product. A lot of new features are
incomplete and some things may even be completely broken. If you need
to get work done, please use the stable version, GIMP 2.2.
GIMP 2.3 replaces earlier GIMP 2.x versions. It is advised that you
uninstall them before installing GIMP 2.3. If you want to keep your
older GIMP 2.x installation in parallel to GIMP 2.3, you have to
choose a separate prefix which is not in your default library search
path.
If you think you found a bug in this version, please make sure that it
hasn't been reported earlier and that it is not just new stuff that is
still being worked on and obviously not quite finished yet.
If you want to hack on The GIMP, please read the file HACKING. For
detailed installation instructions, see the file INSTALL.
