GIMP 2.8.14 Fixed Broken Library Versioning in The Previous Release

Last updated: August 28, 2014

GIMP team just announced the release 2.8.14 the day after the previous release 2.8.12 with the broken library versioning fixed.

Yesterday’s 2.8.12 release had broken library versioning, so we had to roll out GIMP 2.8.14 today. The only change is the fixed libtool versioning. Please do not distribute any binaries of yesterday’s broken 2.8.12 release, and get GIMP 2.8.14 using the torrent:
