sneak peak at gimp 2.8

Following some simple steps as indicated in WebUpd8’s “How To Install GIMP 2.7 in Ubuntu Jaunty and Karmic From a Launchpad PPA“, I just installed Gimp 2.7.3 and have been trying out the new features.

There are some cool new features like the on-canvas text editing, brush tagging, layer groups, improved brush dynamics (now called paint dynamics and has its own separate dialog) and a first preview of the new single-window mode (although it warns you that it is far from being complete I find it quite usable).

Its shaping up to be a very nice release… still waiting for CMYK though :/
