Gimp 2.7 released for testing and we are Impressed with the outcome

Filed under
GIMP

The latest version of Gimp, version 2.7.1 has been released for testing purposes. Compared to its predecessors, it promises to include a host of new features that were previously unavailable. It seems that the developers of Gimp have finally started paying attention to the requests of the community about the serious need to include certain all important changes to the software, so that it can rival its nearest contender and the established benchmark in photo editing software, the almighty Photoshop from Adobe.

Since we like to get our hands dirty with all kinds of new software, we decided to try it out. Maverick Meerkat has just been released and we thought that it would be a good idea to try the latest release of Gimp on the latest release of Ubuntu.

The new load screen portraying a scene similar to a steam boiler room with antique gauges and levers was proof enough to show that there was something really different and fresh about this release.
