Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.8.20 to GIMP 2.8.22

GUI:

  • improve drawing performance in single window mode, especially with pixmap themes

Plug-ins:

  • Fix for CVE-2007-3126, a bug in the ICO plug-in which allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via an ICO file with an InfoHeader containing a Height of zero. We couldn't reproduce any crash in recent version, but fixed the error messages for good measure
  • Avoid creating wrong layer group structure when importing PSD files (already fixed in 2.8.20, didn't make it to the NEWS)
  • Prevent a crash in PDF plug-in if images or resolution are large
  • stop parsing invalid PCX files early and prevent a segmentation fault
  • added support for screenshot functionality under Wayland sessions (backported from devel version of GIMP)

General:

  • if NOCONFIGURE is set, autogen.sh won't run configure
  • VPATH builds for win32 targets have been fixed

Updated Translations:

  • Basque
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Catalan
  • Chinese (PRC)
  • Finnish
  • Greek
  • Hungarian
  • Italian
  • Kazakh
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Slovenian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish

Since gnome-screenshot is now used as the snapshot plugin the behavior is somewhat different than what gimp users may have been used to under X11. In particular if you take a snapshot of a window and leave the Delay option to it's default of 0 seconds, then a snapshot will be taken of the last window to have focus (excluding the screenshot dialog itself). To be able to click a window to select it you will need to either use a non-zero delay or be aware of the window focus.

Otherwise all screenshot functions appear to work under Wayland now; whole screen, one window, and a user-selected region.
