Installation instructions for GIMP 2.1
Installation instructions for GIMP 2.2
--------------------------------------
There are some basic steps to building and installing this development
version of The GIMP.
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 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 most important part is to make sure the requirements for a build

----------------------------------------------
This is the development branch of The GIMP. Here's where new features
are being added. Very soon now, the next stable GIMP release, GIMP 2.2,
will emerge out of this.
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).
Overview of Changes in GIMP 2.2.0-pre1
======================================
- Added more plug-in previews (Displace, Color To Alpha, Newsprint)
and ported existing previews to the new widgets (Glass Tiles).
- Added preview to WMF loader plug-in.
- Added Retinex plug-in for color normalization.
- Added plug-in to load and save raw image data (_not_ the raw format
used by some digital cameras)
- Added a GUI to configure controller modules.
- Let lots of core dialogs remember their last values and add
shortcuts to run with the last values w/o opening the dialog.
- Added new PDB API for drawable tranformations.
- Register all libgimp enums to allow language bindings such as
Script-Fu to access them using GType introspection.
- Improved how we attach user-visible strings to enums registered with
the type system. Added API to access these strings to libgimpbase.
- Cleanups to the new GFig GUI (still work in progress).
- HIGification of the ImageMap plug-in.
- Cleaned up dialogs code.
- Added Auto Whitebalance menu item.
- lots of bug fixes.

THIS IS AN UNSTABLE DEVELOPMENT VERSION! DO NOT USE!
====================================================
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. 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!
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.
If you want to hack on The GIMP, please read the file HACKING. For
detailed installation instructions, see the file INSTALL.
