One vision, one purpose! There is a new version of GIMP published under the name GIMP 2.10.38. GIMP is a free and open-source image raster graphics editor used for image manipulation (retouching) and image editing, free-form drawing, transcoding between different image file formats, and more specialized tasks. It might not be the ideal program for drawing. GIMP is available for Linux, macOS, and Microsoft Windows.[ Here are the changes and the fun stuff from GIMP 2.10.38:

This (possibly last) GIMP 2 stable release brings much-requested backports from GTK3, including improved support for tablets on Windows. A number of bug fixes and minor improvements are also included in this release.

New features and improvements

Improved support for tablets on Windows

Before this release, GIMP only supported connecting tablets on Windows through WinTab drivers rather than the newer Windows Ink drivers. Because of this, we received a number of reports about tablets having issues with unresponsive buttons, incorrect pressure sensitivity, lagging brush movement, and mid-stroke position changes.  

These problems were due to a limitation of GTK2, as support for Windows Ink was implemented in GTK3 by long-time contributor Luca Bacci. For this release, Luca was gracious enough to backport this support to GTK2. You can now switch between WinTab and Windows Ink drivers (if supported by your computer) in the Preferences dialog under the Input Device settings.

Windows Pointer Input API can now be changed - GIMP 2.10.38

Backports of other GTK3 features

Luca also contributed a number of other features from GTK3 to GTK2. Some of the backported improvements include updating the size of the Print Dialog so buttons are not cut off, fixing issues with pop-up dialogs appearing behind the previous ones, and several fixes to keyboard input.

These improvements are primarily for Windows and are already included in the 2.99 development release. However, we are very happy that these quality-of-life improvements are now available in this stable release of GIMP 2.10!


Recent crashes

Two commonly reported crashes have now been corrected.
A change in GLib 2.80 exposed a bug in our closing process and caused a crash on the exit. Luca Bacci once again devised a fix for both 2.10.38 and the upcoming 3.0 release candidate. Another crash that some users encountered when making very small selections was also fixed.

Other fixes

A number of other small bugs were fixed in this release. Among them:

  • Indexed PNGs with transparency are now exported with the correct colors
  • Anders Jonsson fixed the input ranges for several filters, such as Waves and Distort
  • The title bar customization field now supports UTF-8 characters
  • Existing image comments no longer “leak” into newly created images
