Sorry, but as a heavy user of Gimp since about 10 years, I think this version in the repos is wrong, not only for Gimp but also for Sabayon.
We released GIMP 2.7.4 with minor improvements and bugfixes. Most improvements are related to user interface and usability, see here for detailed list of changes. Depending on amount of bugs we get reports on this could be the last version before 2.8 release candidates and 2.8 itself.

The newest and really «bleeding edge» Gimp is 2.6.12, dating from 02.02.2012!!! 2.7.3 (dating October or November 2011) is an equivalent to a Beta 1 in other larger applications. So no Gimp number with the middle number is an uneven number should have anything to do in any source. The giomp-Forum I participate is full of questions and we consequently tell people to delet the version faster than they installed it. According to the developpers, the final 2.8.0 will not look really like the 2.7.x versions. lets hope, the makers of Sabyyon understand this and take the 2.6.12 into the source.

And do you really think such novices are able to bring any support for the advancement of the Gimp? I do not, on the contrary, some have abandoned Gimp when we told them it is a Beta-Version.

I know the Gimp situation, but how many other applications are here in the same way?
Good Buy all, and have a hopefully safe enough time.
