Seems like some people are confused about what OSX versions these GIMP builds SPECIFICALLY function with.

10.6.8 and up, however the computer MUST be 64 bit.

Hey all.
Just a quick status update, quite a few things have been fixed in GIMP and gtk regarding osx support. In no particular order:
Tablet pressure support is now officially included in gtk for osx, so I don't have to ship builds with patches anymore.
Plugin windows (and other non-GIMP windows) no longer open behind the main GIMP window.
You can now change the language inside of GIMPs preferences.
GIMP now uses osx's built-in screenshot functions. (Patch from Simone Karin Lehmann)
We've moved GIMPs directory to "~/Library/Application Support" as opposed to "~/.gimp-2.8/"

This is an amazing piece of software, virtually any piece of free open-source software is available to you with this tool, including Gimp, Tesseract OCR, and even Wine.

Wonderful little application, this one turned out to be, I'm loving it.
It's fast, simple, easy to use, and no drawbacks whatsoever.

Some people I talk to recommended that I cut down on my time used up by launching everything either from the dock or from the Applications folder, and once I tried this, I fell in love with it. I recommend this one above all else. Nicely done, Dev.

Just a quick add-on to what I have previously said, none of the 2.4x series work well with a MacBook with an GMA950 graphics card. If you have one of these cards, its best to just wait, or try one of the test builds of Blender 2.5. The official release date of 2.5 is currently unknown, but it's expected to be released sometime this October.

I am going to start off by saying, this is the best 3d modeling/animating/rendering program I have ever used. It may not be he easiest program ever, but if you stick with it and read a couple of online tutorials, you'll get the hand of it pretty quickly.

I am also going to say that the versions 2.4x WILL NOT work on a MacBook with a GMA950 integrated graphics card. I know from experience that only Blender 2.5 with an updated triple buffer will work properly.

Some say that the interface is clunky and that the key-strokes are also hap-hazardly put into Blender. This is not the case, and if one tries to actually put a bit of time into Blender, it will grow on you.

All in all, I find Blender to be one truly amazing program, and in my eyes, the best valued 3d program out there. So, blend on!

Replying on MacUpdate PROBABLY isn't the best form of communication, and apparently your old email address doesn't work anymore. Find me on Facebook, perhaps?

Issue persists in version 3.0, after closing the main menu, in Expose, your window shows up (invisible, of course). Would it not be better to terminate the window completely? Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about:
