The official download page for all things GIMP! Please only use the official binaries provided here unless you really, really know what you’re doing (it’s the only way to be safe). We try to provide binaries in-time with regular releases, but may occasionally be delayed as the packagers …
I must say I really enjoy the latest versions. It took some time to get used to the new icon style but once that was mastered I was able to appreciate the changes and improvements they put into the program. There is one add-on I want to recommend to all Gimp users. It is so handy and works so great that I hope that it will become part of the general installation package at some time. It is called "Resynthesizer". This is what it does:
Suite of gimp plugins for texture synthesis. Contribute to bootchk/resynthesizer development by creating an account on GitHub.
Installation may be a bit tricky though because there are two plugin folders in different locations on your machine. If you have installed it and it does not work just move it to the other folder. I did it and it works GREAT! If you need more info, ask Google.
