As the latest entry in the GIMP 2.8.x series — released back in 2012and notable for introducing the long-sought ‘single window mode’ — version 2.8.12 continues to refine rather than reinvent. As such there are no new user-facing features to be found.
Instead, developers bring a fresh batch of bug fixes to the table aimed at improving the overall stability, security and style of the famous app.
  • Brush sizes from plugins are no longer distorted 
  • ‘More robust’ loading of .XCF files
  • Widget direction now matches interface language (e.g. RTL)
  • Security improvements to the script-fu-server 
Documentation, help and translation updates are also included. For a complete change log of everything fixed between 2.8.10 and 2.8.12, see the GNOME Git notes.
