Authors: Alexandre Prokoudine
We just released GIMP 2.8.10 ! This is a release in the stable GIMP 2.8 series. This release fixes a bug that prevented older GIMP versions from running on OS X Mavericks. We also did some small adjustments to the Save/Export code in order to make things a bit easier. For the complete list of changes please see the [NEWS](http://git.gnome.org/browse/gimp/plain/NEWS?h=gimp-2-8) file.
Title: GIMP Manual 2.8.1 released

Category: News
Authors: Michael Schumacher
We've released a new version of the user manual with:
* Many, many, many bugfixes
* New (incomplete) translations: Brazilian Portuguese, Danish, Catalan
* The online version of the manual provides a language menu. Readers are now able to easily switch to a different language of the same page.
* It is now easier to report bugs: each page has a link at the bottom to report errors straight into Bugzilla.
Find the packages on our [FTP server](ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/help/).
For easy installation we suggest that you wait until an installer for this release has been packaged for your platform. Find more releases and information about our goals and how you can help at [docs.gimp.org](http://docs.gimp.org/).
An additional bug fix release for GIMP 2.6 has been prepared as well: [2.6.2](http://download.gimp.org/pub/gimp/help/gimp-help-2.6.2.tar.bz2). It contains content fixes and an improved build system.
Title: What we did in 2013
Date: 2013-12-24

Before you leave for the holidays, we thought you'd like an overview of what we did this year to improve GIMP for you.
Most of the time was spent on improving the GEGL-based version of GIMP (to be released as v2.10) and porting GIMP plugins to GEGL, so that you could benefit from 32bit float precision per color channel as much as possible.
We also successfully participated in Google Summer of Code 2013 and merged more code from GSoC2012 into the main development branch, namely Seamless Clone and Warp Transform tools.
You can find out a lot more in [this detailed report](https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-user-list/2013-December/msg00225.html). We wish you to have a great time with your family and friends!
Title: Libre Graphics Meeting 2014

The [Libre Graphics Meeting](http://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2014/) is a conference where artists, users, developers, designers, contributors,... who use, plan, develop, play with, tamper with [free, libre and open source graphics](http://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2014/projects/) applications, libraries, concepts,...
It is an unparalleled opportunity for them to meet, talk, discuss, listen, experience and learn about their favorite tools, the uses, the undiscovered potential, the new ideas that come with them
This year, Libre Graphics Meeting will happen at the University of Leipzig, April 2-5.
The attendees arrive from all over the world—last year, [people from 26 countries](http://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2014/about/) traveled to Madrid to attend. Maybe there will be even more this year?
You can help to make this happen—and many of you already did.
We, the GIMP team, are covering the travel and accommodation expenses for our own team members, and we contribute to the global LGM funds as well. These funds are used to [reimburse the travel expenses](http://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2014/reimbursement/) of contributors and speakers.
Our contribution is possible due to your donations—many, many thanks for this, the return on investment from such meetings for the projects is invaluable.
But, the LGM organizers, they ask for modest contributions, always keen not to drain the funds of the projects that attend the meeting. We've got our planned expenses covered for this LGM, so we'll ask you to force them to take more! :)
LGM runs a [travel fund pledgie campaign](https://pledgie.com/campaigns/22927) with an ambitious goal: $12,000. Please go there and contribute to make this awesome meeting possible.

Heads-up if you are still accessing the downloads via ftp.gimp.org:
The downloads server has been renamed to [download.gimp.org](http://download.gimp.org/), and it doesn't support FTP anymore. If you have linked any file, installer package, source archive or directory with an ftp://-Link, please change it to http://. The directory structure is unchanged.
