Fedora Test Update Notification
2007-11-26 18:42:21.006110

Name        : gimp
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.4.2
Release     : 1.fc7
URL         : http://www.gimp.org/
Summary     : GNU Image Manipulation Program
Description :
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. GIMP has many of the tools and filters you would expect
to find in similar commercial offerings, and some interesting extras as well.
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.

Update Information:

This update is a major version change. Please test thoroughly. Don't flag it as working unless you have done really extensive testing! I don't want to push this to stable too soon.

For new features and other changes, please read the release notes of GIMP 2.4 on the web: http://www.gimp.org/release-notes/gimp-2.4.html

GIMP 2.4 is supposed to be compatible to older GIMP 2.x versions as far as plug-ins are concerned. It also uses the TinyScheme interpreter now for Script-Fu scripts which is a bit less forgiving about certain programming errors. If you use custom Script-Fu scripts, you might have to fix them to work in GIMP 2.4. Read the Script-Fu Migration Guide on the web for further information: http://www.gimp.org/docs/script-fu-update.html
