ANNOUNCE: GIMP 2.1.3 Development Release



Hi,

a new development snapshot of GIMP 2.1 is now available from
ftp.gimp.org and it's mirrors:

   http://gimp.org/downloads/#mirrors

This is an unstable development release. It certainly has bugs and
there are a number of unfinished hacks. We are nevertheless interested
in your feedback and would like you to file bug reports for crashes
and non-obvious problems.

Please note that you cannot install gimp-2.1 side-by-side with
gimp-2.0 into the same prefix. A number of files will clash, so please
use a separate prefix to install this development version! For
details, please read the file INSTALL.

Also, please do _not_ distribute binary packages of gimp-2.1. We are
aiming for a gimp-2.2 release by the end of september, so please wait
for gimp-2.2.

Here's an overview of the changes since 2.1.2 was released:

  does. Use that info to keep tools active across modifications to
  the image that don't affect the tool (bug #109561).

- Changed default config for keyboard controller to allow scrolling
  the display using the cursor keys (#53988).
