GIMP 2.6 replaces earlier GIMP 2.x versions. It is advised that you
uninstall them before installing GIMP 2.6. If you want to keep your
older GIMP 2.x installation in parallel to GIMP 2.6, you have to

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.x.
