    Reviewing 2.8.10 (Jul 20, 2014)

    My most pleasant surprise. Truly nice work, and to get that free. Thanks a lot for the developer. Fully compatible with all of my PCs, on 3 different OS and language platforms, works without incidents.
    Very effective, great for demanding works. Needs some learning but not too difficult to use, give very nice result.

    Reviewing 2.8.6 (Jun 25, 2013)

    Gets even better. What caught my eye with this release is that you can now have a clipboard brush that's up to 1024x1024. Very cool stuff indeed. It flawlessly installed as well. I'm using the Win 64 version. I've been a GIMPer since 2001 so I might be a little biased. lololol

    Reviewing 2.8.4 (Feb 8, 2013)

    Took an online course through for this. Downloaded three plugins and it out performs Adobe IMHO. I wish that they would update the Linux version though.

    Installed the update yesterday. So far no gotchas from updating from 2.8.2 and that's a good thing. lol

    I was a little apprehensive from upgrading from 2.6x to 2.8 and 2.8.0 had more then a share of bugs/fustrations, but, since 2.8.2, GIMP's been a joy to use. I hope 2.8.4 will even be better, but I really haven't done much editing with the new update but what little I have, it's seems as good as 2.8.2 has been for me and, again, that's a good thing. :)
