Updates on MacOS - Fake?

Harry Jacob
Hi,

the official release on MacOS is Gimp 2.10.14.
But now I found a release 2.10.18 on https://gimp.de.uptodown.com/mac

Is this a fake or a try to get malware on my Mac?

Or is it an alternative release I can trust?



And what about the actual release 2.10.20 - when will we get it on Mac?



Bye, Harry

Hello Harry,

We never heard of that website before so can't recommend it.

Our macOS packager has been busy, so far noone succeeded picking up where
he left.

I'm almost finished with my build if you are willing to wait a couple of
days...

Re: Updates on MacOS - Fake?

Users mailing list
I know you hate me when I ask about GIMP releases for MacOS; but I use GIMP
for my photo editing, and I (without any offense) MUST know if I can rely
on GIMP for that, or if I have to switch to another software: Photoshop,
Luminar, ON1, whatever.  Please, state clearly if GIMP is supported on
MacOS: if yes, I will wait; if no, I will start searching for
alternatives.  And, do not say "wait a couple of days" if you are not sure
about that, Mr. Bagchi.

Suggestion: what about saying plainly on your web page "GIMP is not
supported on Mac OS X", if that is the case?

Again, no offense intended.  Just to be clear.

It's not about hate. GIMP is developed entirely  by volunteers, and
although that's worked well for Unix and Linx, which always had a
culture of cooperation, that doesn't seem to work so well on the Mac,
where proprietary software and paid apps rule. We don't havemany
volunteers working on OS X, and the one who did the releases has been
ill and/or unavailable.

There is no such thing as "supported" or "not supported", only
volunteers who will help as best we can.

There are no schedules. If it doesn't work for you, you can join in &
help, or use another program as you suggested
