    Info GIMP 2.6 is out

    Including windows binaries.

    Here is the release notes page: http://gimp.org/release-notes/gimp-2.6.html

    Of special interest is this bit:
    Brush Dynamics
    Brush dynamics let you map different brush parameters, commonly at least size and opacity, to one or more of three input dynamics: pressure, velocity and random. Velocity and random are usable with a mouse. The Ink tool, that supported velocity before, has been overhauled and now handles velocity-dependent painting much better.

    Brush dynamics have enabled a new feature in stroking paths. There is now a check box under the "paint tool" option, for emulating brush dynamics if you stroke using a paint tool. What this means is that when your stroke is being painted by GIMP, it tells the brush that its pressure and velocity are varying along the length of the stroke. Pressure starts with zero, ramps up to full pressure and then ramps down again to no pressure. Velocity starts from zero and ramps up to full speed by the end of the stroke.
    The orange emphasis is mine..... no need for my tapered stroke script now

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll wander over and pick up the new version as soon as I've finished the project I'm working on.

    I definitely like the new window setup... I miss understood for a while that they were going to a single window (yuck, fine for single monitor machines, but multi-monitor setups can do some really awesome things with separated windows). Now we only have one better setup set of menus, and the ability to scroll past the image boundary when zoomed in is nice.

    Yeah - that is a feature I didn't know I was missing until I got it.... now I don't know how I tolerated it before!
