    people debug their fonts
  2. Tool options are now properly saved and reloaded per-device at
    startup
  3. Enable visibility of rasterized vector layer from PSD

    window even when it is partly off-screen or covered by another
    window or when display scaling is not set to 100%
  5. New Spherize filter to wrap an image around a spherical cap
  6. Warn users, when alpha-only painting has no effect. E.g. when target
    drawable doesn’t have an alpha channel, or the alpha channel is locked

    Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Russian, Spanish,
    Swedish, Ukrainian
  8. Add a flatpak manifest for the gtk3-port branch

    centered under the pointer even if the image is completely visible
    in the canvas.
  10. Updating the description of the XCF format “devel-docs/xcf.txt”, for
    third-party readers wishing to support GIMP 2.10 XCF files.
