New upstream release 2.8.20

Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.8.18 to GIMP 2.8.20

Core:

  • Avoid D-Bus error message when built without D-Bus support
  • Saving to existing .xcf.bz and .xcf.gz files didn't truncate them and could lead to unnecessarily large files
  • Text layer created by gimp-text-fontname doesn't respect border when resized
  • avoid seeking when saving XCF files to prevent corruption with file network shares (fixed since 2014, but not mentioned in NEWS yet)

GUI:

  • Flow on Paint Dynamics editor dialog: the 'y' axis is indicating 'Rate' instead 'Flow'
  • Vertical ruler shows artifacts if the status bar isn't showing
  • Tablet stylus misbehaves when crossing the edge of a dock in multi-window-mode
  • Improve the visiblity of slider handles with dark themes
  • Make it harder to switch to renaming if selecting already selected items in resource lists

Tools:

  • make toggling to color picker mode of paint tools more robust

Libgimp:

  • call gimp_file_entry_set_filename() with filename encoding

Plug-ins:

  • Prevent the Python console from closing by the Escape key
  • Filter 'Edge Detect/Difference of Gaussians' returns empty image
  • mkgen.pl: fix calls to write_file() routine to write to current directory
  • When printing, the images are composed onto a white background to prevent printing a black box instead of a transaprent image
  • Fix color visison deficiency display filters to apply gamma correction directly
