GIMP 2.4.0 was released almost one year ago, but today this popular open-source image editing and graphics program has been replaced by GIMP 2.6. With GIMP 2.6, the toolbox menu bar has been removed and its functionality merged with the main menu bar, toolbox and docks are now a utility window, and there is now also the ability to pan beyond the image border. Additionally, the GIMP free select tool has been greatly improved, there is now brush dynamics capabilities, most color operations now use GEGL (the Generic Graphics Library), and many other changes. The GIMP 2.6 release notes can be found at GIMP.org. Checkout the GIMP homepage for additional information.
