What's new in version 2.10.20

  • Painting tools can now save and load opacity and blending mode to/from presets.
  • Canon CR3 files are now properly recognized by GIMP and sent to your raw developer software of choice.
  • The TWAIN plug-in used for acquiring images via scanners has been slightly refactored and now supports 16-bit RGB/grayscale images.
  • PNG and TIFF plug-ins now default to not saving color values when alpha channel is present and 0 itself. This is to address security concerns about using simple cutting to remove sensitive information.
  • The PDF plug-in now imports multi-page documents in bottom-first order, similar to animated formats, and also similar to defaults for PDF exporting. This brings consistency but breaks existing behavior in 3rd party scripts. Tool-group menus can now expand on hover.
  • Non-destructive cropping now available by cropping the canvas rather than actual pixels.
  • Better PSD support: exporting of 16-bit files now available, reading/writing channels in the right order.
  • On-canvas controls for the Vignette filter.
  • New filters: Bloom, Focus Blur, Lens Blur, Variable Blur.
  • Blending options now built into filter dialogs.
  • Over 30 bugfixes.
