ANNOUNCE: GIMP 2.8.20 released

Michael Schumacher
Hi,

we are releasing GIMP 2.8.20 with a number of bug fixes, including the
official fix for the weird language choices on macOS (this was already
fixed in an update to the most recent 2.8.18 package).

Users on the Microsoft Windows platform will notice a fix to end the
crazy oscillating between different input devices, for example a tablet
stylus and the mouse.

This is a bugfix release in the stable 2.8 series, no
new features were added.

For a complete list of changes since 2.8.18 please see the "Changes"
section below. Also see the release notes of the 2.8 series at
https://www.gimp.org/release-notes/gimp-2.8.html

Happy GIMPing,
--Michael

  d405640c426b234d6efc36fb4f5bae57  gimp-2.8.20.tar.bz2


Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.8.18 to GIMP 2.8.20
===================================================


Core:

 - Avoid D-Bus error message when built without D-Bus support
 - fix OS X min required conditional in gimpimagewindow.c
 - Saving to existing .xcf.bz and .xcf.gz files didn't truncate them
   and could lead to unnecessarily large files
 - Text layer created by gimp-text-fontname doesn't respect border
   when resized
 - Avoid seeking when saving XCF files to prevent corruption with
   file network shares (fixed since 2014, but not mentioned in NEWS yet)


GUI:

 - Flow on Paint Dynamics editor dialog: the 'y' axis is indicating
   'Rate' instead 'Flow'
 - Vertical ruler shows artifacts if the status bar isn't showing
 - Tablet stylus misbehaves when crossing the edge of a dock in
   multi-window-mode
 - Disable the new "automatic window tabbing" feature introduced on
   macOS Sierra
 - Improve the visibility of slider handles with dark themes
 - Make it harder to switch to renaming if selecting already selected
   items in resource lists


Tools:

 - Make toggling to color picker mode of paint tools more robust


Libgimp:

 - Call gimp_file_entry_set_filename() with filename encoding


Windows Installer:

 - Reduce the memory requirement when running the installer (has
   already been shipped in a 2.8.18 installer-only update)
 - Ship an updated libcairo to fix GTK+ UI rendering problems, like
   missing palette border/bevel and shadows under tab labels


macOS DMG:

 - Ship the Tango icon theme with the DMG for a complete set of icons
 - Fix the way mime data is copied into the bundle
 - No longer copy Pango modules into the bundle
 - Prevent a crash caused by drag&drop on OSX by patching the included
   GTK+
 - Ship a patch for gettext to make sure the preferred UI language
   will be used


Plug-ins:

 - Prevent the Python console from closing by the Escape key
 - Help browser does not launch on OS X
 - Filter 'Edge Detect/Difference of Gaussians' returns empty image
 - Only use -xobjective-c for compile commands
 - mkgen.pl: fix calls to write_file() routine to write to current
   directory
 - When printing, the images are composed onto a white background to
   prevent printing a black box instead of a transparent image
 - Fix color vision deficiency display filters to apply gamma
   correction directly


Updated Translations:

 - Catalan
 - Czech
 - Danish
 - Finnish
 - French
 - German
 - Greek
 - Hungarian
 - Icelandic
 - Italian
 - Polish
 - Portuguese
 - Slovak
 - Slovenian
 - Scottish Gaelic
 - Spanish
 - Swedish


General:

 - Bug fixes

Lao-Tse sagt: Nichtstun ist besser, als mit viel Mühe nichts zu schaffen.
Und er sagt auch: Ich habe drei Schätze, die ich hüte und hege.
Der eine ist die Liebe, der zweite ist die Genügsamkeit, der dritte ist die Demut.
Nur der Liebende ist mutig, nur der Genügsame ist großzügig, nur der Demütige ist fähig zu herrschen.

Hi,

In Windows 10, These errors occurred after installation of 2.8.20 and starting
up GIMP for the first time and subsequent times.

Been using Gimp for past 5 years.

Just reporting the errors for now. Thanks.
