Hello everybody,

If you were stuck for something to do with your evening (or morning or night, depending on your timezone), you could do worse than download the latest pre-release of the GIMP 2.0 from

or from one of the mirrors listed at

The GIMP (for those who don't know) is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

Since it's been a little while since the last pre-release, quite a few bugs have been fixed, and some small user interface changes have also been made, so it is well worth the upgrade.

Happy GIMPing,
