Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.10.0 to GIMP 2.10.2 ===================================================


  • Discard fonts which fail to load and popup an info dialog to allow people debug their fonts.
  • New API to suppress updates in UI until plug-ins are done introducing changes.
  • New API to calculate histograms in separate threads, with possible further extension to handle similar cases elsewhere in GIMP.
  • Tool options are now properly saved and reloaded per-device at startup.


  • New plug-in for importing and exporting HEIF images.
  • Enable visibility of rasterized vector layer from PSD.
  • Single-window screenshots in Windows fixed to correctly snap a window even when it is partly off-screen or covered by another window or when display scaling is not set to 100%.


  • New Spherize filter to wrap an image around a spherical cap
  • New Recursive Transform filter to create Droste effect.


  • Warn users, when alpha-only painting has no effect. E.g. when target drawable doesn't have an alpha channel, or the alpha channel is locked.
  • Make the splash texts dynamic, so they are larger on larger splashes.
  • Mention pressing Enter to complete Foreground selection in the status bar.
  • Make sure that clicking outside any selection prevents Rectangle Select and Ellipse Select tools from creating empty selections.
  • Improve mouse wheel zooming behavior to keep the same point centered under the pointer even if the image is completely visible in the canvas.
  • Add "View -> Center Image in Window" (Shift+J) as a quick way to center the image at any zoom level.


  • Updated translations: Catalan, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Ukrainian.
  • New translation of Windows installer: Chinese (Taiwan)


  • Add a --with-bug-report-url configure option allowing packagers to set the address of their own bug tracker. This address will be the one opened by the debug dialog for reporting bugs.
  • Add a flatpak manifest for the gtk3-port branch.
  • Remove the possibility to disable script-fu.
  • Add a --with-icc-directory configure option to customize the color profile directory. By default, it is set to the common path /usr/share/color/icc.


  • Updating the description of the XCF format "devel-docs/xcf.txt", for third-party readers wishing to support GIMP 2.10 XCF files.
  • Add documentation skeletons for all enums in libgimpbase/, there is much room for improvement.
