Michael Natterer improved the _Heal_ tool by adding the "Sample merged" option

# What's next
Work on GIMP codebase is still going hard, not only for the stable GIMP
2.10.x branch, but only on the master branch with GTK+3 port. Hopefully
we will have soon some nice things to announce on this less visible side
of the development!
In the meantime, if you want to meet members of the GIMP team, as every
year, several members will be present during the [Libre Graphics Meeting
2019](https://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2019/) in **Saarbruecken,
Germany**, from May 29 to June 2. We have a few talks planned. Other
than this, we will likely hang around, so do not hesitate to catch one
of us for a talk!
