Gimp builds for Windows & OSX
As a Linux user I don't really care(*), but since 80% people around here are on Windows:

A guy named Partha has somehow devoted himself to make builds of recent Gimp versions for OSes other than Linux. He already has builds for 2.7 on Windows, together with his favorite plugins when necessary, and will certainly have a 2.8 build rather quickly.

Furthermore, he just announced that he is working on OSX builds, running without X11. These aren't available yet, but he showed a very convincing screenshot so you may not have to wait for long.

I'm just passing the message, for more info go to his site:

(*) but as a Gimp advocate I applaud with all four hands Smile

RE: Gimp builds for Windows & OSX
I used to run gimp2.8 on snow leopard. I am now switching to mountain lion. Can I reload the same program gimp?


I asked this same question a couple of days ago. I had an invalid email address listed at gimp so I might have missed a message.

I use linux and know very little about OSX, however the forum is littered with posts from people upgrading their Mac and having problems.

The general fix seems to be 'install the latest Gimp 2.8.10 compilation'. Which compilation to use, I do not know. The partha version maybe.
