    Phoronix: GIMP 2.10.8 Gets Better Performance Boost On Lower-End Hardware

    It doesn't look like GIMP 3.0 will be under the tree this Christmas, but at least GIMP 2.10 continues progressing with new stable releases to provide new optimizations and enhancements...

      I wish to see GIMP with GTK 3 so I can uninstall libgtk2 from my system.

          Since this is dynamic, shouldn't that theoretically mean high-end systems get a performance boost too?

          Same here. It's even worse if you're using a Qt+Wayland environment like myself.

            This is what their comment says:

            In particular, chunk size of image projections are now determined dynamically depending on processing speed, allowing better responsiveness of GIMP on less powerful machines whereas processing would be faster on more powerful ones.
            It seems it is just Micheal who shortened it up

              I never really considered gimp to be slow, but I'll take it.

                I recently used the new GIMP for processing some Website graphics. The package that came bundles with Fedora 29 crashes in a row here on my system. In the middle of some image processing everything disappears and a small dialog pops up with the backtrace. It looks like the GIMP 2.10.x has a long way to go until stabilisation.

                  There are some other applications other than XMMS that are compatible with Winamp skins.
                  I think maybe XMMS2, Audacious, Beep Media Player, and some others.

                    I found KRITA just as great (or even better) for photo edit, but you have to be in the mood to learn it
