GIMP v2.10 released!

GIMP v2.10 released! Your favorite open source and free image editing software.

here are some of the most notable changes:

Image processing nearly fully ported to GEGL, allowing high bit depth processing, multi-threaded and hardware accelerated pixel processing, and more.
Color management is a core feature now, most widgets and preview areas are color-managed.
Many improved tools, and several new and exciting tools, such as the Warp transform, the Unified transform and the Handle transform tools.
On-canvas preview for all filters ported to GEGL.
Improved digital painting with canvas rotation and flipping, symmetry painting, MyPaint brush support…
Support for several new image formats added (OpenEXR, RGBE, WebP, HGT), as well as improved support for many existing formats (in particular more robust PSD importing).
Metadata viewing and editing for Exif, XMP, IPTC, and DICOM.
Basic HiDPI support: automatic or user-selected icon size.
New themes for GIMP (Light, Gray, Dark, and System) and new symbolic icons meant to somewhat dim the environment and shift the focus towards content (former theme and color icons are still available in Preferences).


Sharp 70inch 8k TV announced

Sharp has announced 70″ 8k TV. Now this obviously is a mere showcase tv hardware as there are no 8k content available from “tv sources”, you have to generate your own, view some high resolution images or rely on people releasing 8k content on the internet (which are not mainstream tv / movies).

But it is great to see how technology advances, it almost feel like 4k televisions came out just couple of years ago and now we already get the first 8k one 🙂

Personally I purchased my 4k computer monitor in early 2015, I got my 65″ 4k HDR tv only as late as february 2017.
