GIMP 2.2.2 is now available for Fedora Core 3

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : gimp
Version : 2.2.2
Release : 0.fc3.2
Summary : The GNU Image Manipulation Program
Description :
The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a powerful image composition and editing program, which can be extremely useful for creating logos and other graphics for webpages. The GIMP has many of the tools and filters you would expect to find in similar commercial offerings, and some interesting extras as well. The GIMP provides a large image manipulation toolbox, including channel operations and layers, effects, sub-pixel imaging and anti-aliasing, and conversions, all with multi-level undo.

The GIMP includes a scripting facility, but many of the included scripts rely on fonts that we cannot distribute. The GIMP FTP site has a package of fonts that you can install by yourself, which includes all the fonts needed to run the included scripts. Some of the fonts have unusual licensing requirements; all the licenses are documented in the package. Get ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/fonts/freefonts-0.10.tar.gz and ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/fonts/sharefonts-0.10.tar.gz if you are so inclined. Alternatively, choose fonts which exist on your system before running the scripts.

Update Information:

This is a major version upgrade from 2.0.x to 2.2.x but it is designed to be binary compatible in order that old plug-ins and scripts continue to work.

Note that this new version will install a new .gimp-2.2 directory into your home when running it for the first time. If you have customized your settings you may have to re-do these changes in the File/Preferences dialogue. If you have user-specific plug-ins or scripts which are located beneath the old .gimp-2.0 directory you have to copy them into the new directory to be able to use them.
