The selection tools have been rewritten from scratch, including a new way of selecting things with round corners, as requested by web designers. Better zooming code means that whole lines of your image will no longer disappear when zoomed out, and new colour management code should be welcomed by digital photo artists.
The GIMP also includes a new Tango-style icon set, which goes hand-in-hand with the redesigned website.
Unfortunately, GEGL integration still isn't anywhere to be found, but perhaps it'll make it in a later release."
