GIMP 3.0 still isn't out yet but the GIMP 2.10 stable series continues seeing new point releases with additional feature work until that GTK3 version of this image editor / Photoshop alternative is ready.

GIMP 2.10.24 is another update bringing some minor new features in the absence of GIMP 3.0. GIMP 2.10.24 has support for being able to snap GIMP's different tools to guides, grids, and vectors outside of the canvas area. Besides the off-canvas point snapping, another big feature of GIMP 2.10.24 is expanded metadata support, including GeoTIFF metadata tag support. Also significant for GIMP 2.10.24 is a "Negative Darkroom" feature for simulating enlargement prints from scans of photo negatives.

GIMP 2.10.24 also brings improved support for PDF, DDS, PNG, HEIF, TIFF, and RAW image formats.

On the GIMP 3.0 front, a GIMP 2.99.6 development release is expected soon where we should learn more about the long overdue plans for that major update.
