GIMP 2.4.1. has been released to fix a few bugs. Here’s the release from gimp.org:
GIMP 2.4.1 is a bug-fix release in the stable 2.4 series. It fixes problems that were discovered after the 2.4.0 release. Please see the NEWS file for details.
It’s here, it’s here! For those of you who waited for the stable release, it’s now available. Head on over to gimp.org and download away. They changed their website design too, so when you get there and it doesn’t look familiar, don’t panic.
Update: Several readers have suggested easier and more effective methods. Check the comments section!
EPS is the vector graphic file format Adobe Illustrator saves in. Supposedly you can import these files directly to Inkscape if you have skencil and pstoedit installed, but I couldn’t make it work. So I converted it manually using the GIMP and Inkscape. Here’s how I did it.
In the Script-Fu menu, there is an option to add a bevel, but I’ve found it to be lacking, so I found a better way to create a bevel which I’m sharing with you here.
From the announcement:
After four months of hard work we are proud to announce a new release of the user manual for GIMP 2.2.
- new content, spelling and grammar fixes for German, French, Italian, Norwegian, Russian, Spanish, Korean and Dutch
- support for creating ODF files (you need to have docbook2odf installed.)
- lots of bug fixes
- new tutorials from gimp.org
- Quickreference sheet export to SVG
- and more technically: a new build system.
The source files of gimp-help-2-0.13 can be downloaded from ftp.gimp.org. Users should wait until this release has been packaged in a pre-compiled form that is easier to install. Find more information about our goals and how you can help at http://docs.gimp.org.
