Is it available for download somewhere? I’m only seeing download links for 2.8.22.
EDIT: Woops, completely missed the link to the development downloads: https://www.gimp.org/downloads/devel/
Question is very relevant.
Windows users cannot easily get 2.9.8, as it’s simply not available. I wish that binaries were provided before sending
