GIMP for Panther
, a pre-release of the next major GIMP update, and all its dependencies on Mac OS X 10.3 Panther: "Preliminary builds have been running on Mac OS X for nearly two weeks now and creation of a binary packaged installer for Mac users is in progress. A release is expected to be made available by the end of November. The hope is to roll out documentation for building it for those who enjoy the acquaintance of their compiler."
Version 1.3 of the GIMP is a precursor to the 2.0 release, and represents
an advanced ("very stable") beta at this point, and has a number of major
improvements, according to the company. MacGIMP says there it does not include CMYK conversion, although there is a CMYK plugin available. A major public release of MacGIMP is expected when GIMP 2.0 for Linux ships, while a limited private beta releases will be available to current MacGIMP customers before the end of November.
