Thanks for the link! I have downloaded "Gimp-2.0.0-5.dmg".

I am still using Jaguar 10.2.6 and I have installed "X11UserForMacOSX.dmg". So I should be able to use the new gimp at least in this so called experimental X11 version. But up to now it doesn't work.
When I start the Gimp.app there pops up an error that says "Failed to start X11 - Gimp.app requires Apple's X11". So I started X11 first manually and then start Gimp. Now again a kind of startup message says "Caching fonts..." but 2 seconds later Gimps closes again without finishing its start up (but also no error this time).

Somebody knows what to do?

Hope you don't mind this OT reply.

Thank you,
