Hi all,

The first pre-release for the upcoming 2.0 version of the GIMP 
is now available for download from

or from one of the mirrors listed at

Not everything is in its final state, but we think this is close
to a final 2.0 release. Your feedback will help make the 2.0
release even better, and we particularly appreciate testing
efforts. New bugs can be reported to us at

Please note that the GIMP 2.0 installs side-by-side with the
GIMP 1.2, so there is no need to uninstall your older GIMP.

Happy GIMPing,
