GIMP launches 2.8.22 fixing 10-year-old bug

The team behind GIMP has launched GIMP 2.8.22 for download which resolves a number of bugs, including a 10-year-old issue dating back to version 2.3.

The development team at GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) says it has officially resolved an issue that first cropped up in version 2.3 that caused the ICO file input plug-in to crash with some images.

GIMP says the bug became less prevalent in recent years, but now is officially resolved.

Other fixes in GIMP 2.8.22 include support a wide range of languages, improvements to drawing performance in single window mode and:

Avoid creating wrong layer group structure when importing PSD files
Prevent a crash in PDF plug-in if images or resolution are large
Stop parsing invalid PCX files early and prevent a segmentation fault

This is why GIMP should be left well alone by photographers. There are so many alternatives at great prices today that are much faster with patches and updates. GIMP needs to be reinvented, they need a commercial and open source version so they can actually have a decent development community
