Seems so, probably due to Gimps new userbase & a tech article posted online recently on how to make gimp more like photoshop. Now you have all these shoppers getting stuck & going on the site with overwhelming traffice.

Or they maybe doing site maintenance, if you need to download gimp:
oldapps is a good source for now.

A good fix:

1. - google search "gimp.org" click the green down arrow next to the search result of the page. Click "cached"

- If it still doesn't load, find the link on the top bar called "text-only version" click that. Problem solved Smile

*Note, the version you see is the last updated build before it got busy or went down for maintenance

2. The next best thing, use gimp forums like this one for support ^_^ We're happy to help, for bug reports go to the bugzilla gnome site ; Gimp subsection

RE: gimp.org is down?
gimp.org was working a couple of hours ago, I know I downloaded an old version windows 2.6 devel.
They do have breaks of service but it is rarely very long. Best to be patient.
or
Use the partha version http://www.partha.com

on the other hand would I use getgimp.com

not in a million years

RE: gimp.org is down?
I didn't want to mention the partha link to save the poor guys site from overload just in case, lol. Oh well. It is a good source though

Yet one more source (with the latest version 2.8.10) can be found on cnet:
They have a couple of versions of gimp for linux also, one for mac.
