a new development snapshot of GIMP 2.1 is now available from and it's mirrors:

This is an unstable development release. It certainly has bugs and
there are a number of unfinished hacks. We are nevertheless interested
in your feedback and would like you to file bug reports for crashes
and non-obvious problems.

Please note that you cannot install gimp-2.1 side-by-side with
gimp-2.0 into the same prefix. A number of files will clash, so please
use a separate prefix to install this development version! For
details, please read the file INSTALL.

Here's an overview of the changes since 2.1.3 was released:

- Rewritten internal handling of progress indicators. Embed progress
  bars to the File Open dialog to reduce annoying dialogs popping up.

- Added an API for plug-ins to embed a progress bar. Let the Script-Fu
  dialog swallow the progress bars created by running the script.

- Ported remaining plug-ins and modules to GimpPreviewArea and removed

- Show progress while converting from RGB to Indexed Colors.

- Added new plug-ins Cartoon, Neon, Photocopy and Softglow.

- Let color selectors adapt to the given size.

- Import basic SVG shapes as paths.

- Improved GIH and guillotine plug-ins.

- Added GimpMessageBox widget. Collect error messages in a single
  dialog to reduce popups.

- Renamed the core GimpPreview widget to GimpView.

- Added a GimpPreview widget to libgimpwidgets. This is an abstract
  class that combines a GimpPreviewArea with scrollbars and a "Preview"
  toggle button.

- Added GimpDrawablePreview derived from GimpPreview.

- Improved previews in Unsharp Mask, Scatter RGB, Sharpen, Spread and
  Grid plug-ins.

- Added previews to Edge, Gaussian Blur, Neon, Soft Glow, Sobel and
  Selective Gaussian Blur.

- Added a logarithmic mode for the slider in a GimpScaleEntry.

- Script-Fu code cleanups.
