Graphics, User Interfaces It's here: the GIMP 2.8. Its biggest feature is something that many, many people have been requesting for as long as I can remember: single-window mode. No longer do you have to fiddle with a gazillion palette and dialog windows (unless you choose to do so, of course). Great work by the team.

I know you said that you would rather not compile anything, but it's actually quite easy to create DEB packages from the PPA for Ubuntu:

1. Download sources from The following command will download all the sources automatically (which are listed in the .dsc file):


2. Extract the tarballs:

dpkg-source -x gimp_2.8.0-1ubuntu0ppa3~precise.dsc
cd gimp-2.8.0

3. Create the DEB packages. The command will tell the exact packages/dependencies you need to install.

dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -b

And the shiny new DEB packages will be in the same folder as the .dsc file ;)
