It is a bit of an early Chistmas 🎅 for people using Apple Silicon machines (Apple M1, M2…) as we release for the first time ever a stable version of GIMP for this architecture!
It is a revision package for GIMP 2.10.32, already released a few months
ago, re-built with
our new MacPorts-based
x86_64 (“macOS on Intel” architecture) and
AArch64 (“macOS on Apple Silicon”).
Note that we provide 2 DMG packages now, one for each architecture, not a single universal package. The website will try and detect which architecture you are on, but if it fails to detect properly (detection is not as easy on some browsers), be careful to choose the version for the correct hardware (“for Intel” or “for Apple Silicon“).
Additionally in this revised package, dependencies have been updated, in particular babl and GEGL. It means that even for macOS on Intel, you will get the recent fix to the race condition bug which was sometimes causing crashes of GIMP (somehow we mostly saw it happen on macOS).
This is why we recommend every person on macOS (whichever your hardware) to update GIMP with this revision 1 of GIMP 2.10.32.
As usual, get these updates on GIMP’s download page!
