GIMP 2.6 released today.

Just installed it. I had to relearn a few things with respect to where those things are now located, but no biggy. My only real complaint is that when you create a duplicate layer, the new layer doesn't by default contain an Alpha channel (i.e., if you choose to do an erase through, the lower layer doesn't show through; only the background color). Not hard to add the alpha channel, but it is a pain. Maybe (hopefully) they will fix this little "feature". Otherwise, I'm glad for 2.6 since it has the potentional, via GEGL, to support higher bit color depths.

edit:
Only if you duplicate a layer that already has no alpha channel (i.e., a flattened base layer). This was not the case before, but I can live with it I guess. Still, I wish that when you duplicate a layer, the alpha channel would automajically be added as all the previous versions of GIMP did. Can't win them all I guess.

Check this site out Mike; I'm sure they must have ported it to the MAC by now.

Edit: Well I guess not. I'm sure it will be so soon though.

Re: GIMP 2.6 released today.

Thanks for the info alfredo. I have a lot of online buddies that use Mac (I'm a PC guy myself) and haven't really found a good thread for Macs until I saw your link.

While I'm here, I highly recommend those that have an older version of 2.6x to get 2.67; fixed a lot of bugs. Also, 2.8 will be (hopefully) coming out by the end of this year if not sooner. Many people that I've talked too also prefer using Portable GIMP (no need to install) then the full version of GIMP. Not sure if they ported Portable GIMP to Mac platform yet.
