+ ------------------------------
+ GNU Image Manipulation Program
+ 2.8 Stable Branch
+ ------------------------------
+
+GIMP 2.8 replaces earlier GIMP 2.x versions. It is advised that you
+uninstall them before installing GIMP 2.8. If you want to keep your
+older GIMP 2.x installation in parallel to GIMP 2.8, you have to
+choose a separate prefix which is not in your default library search
+path. Otherwise your prevoius GIMP installation will start to use the
+new libraries. You have been warned.
+
+If you think you found a bug in this version, please make sure that it
+hasn't been reported earlier and that it is not just new stuff that is
+still being worked on and obviously not quite finished yet.
+
+If you want to hack on GIMP, please read the file HACKING. For
+detailed installation instructions, see the file INSTALL.
+
+
+1. Web Resources
+================
+
+GIMP's home page is at:
+
+ http://www.gimp.org/
+
+Please be sure to visit this site for information, documentation,
+tutorials, news, etc. All things GIMP-ish are available from there.
+
+The automated plug-in registry is located at:
+
+ http://registry.gimp.org/
+
+There you can get the latest versions of plug-ins, using a convenient
+forms-based interface.
+
+The latest version of GIMP can be found at:
+
+ http://www.gimp.org/downloads/
+
+
+2. Mailing Lists
+================
+
+We have several mailing lists dedicated to GIMP user and development
+discussion. There is more info at
+
+ http://www.gimp.org/mail_lists.html
+
+Links to several archives of the mailing lists are included in that page.
+
+Gimp-user-list is a mailing list dedicated to user problems, hints and
+tips, discussion of cool effects, etc. Gimp-developer-list is oriented
+to GIMP core and plug-in developers. Most people will only want to be
+subscribed to gimp-user-list. If you want to help develop GIMP, the
+gimp-developer mailing list is a good starting point.
+
+
+3. IRC
+======
+
+And finally, for the real junkies, there is an IRC channel devoted to
+GIMP. On GIMPNet (a private free software oriented network) there is
+#gimp. Many of the developers hang out there. Some of the GIMPNet
+servers are:
+
+ irc.gimp.org:6667
+ irc.us.gimp.org:6667
+ irc.eu.gimp.org:6667
+
+
+4. Customizing
+==============
+
+The look of GIMP's interface can be customized like any other GTK app
+by editing the ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file or by using "themes" (ready-made
+customizations). For downloadable themes and further details, see
+http://art.gnome.org/themes/gtk2 . Additionally, GIMP reads the file
+~/.gimp-2.8/gtkrc so you can have settings that only apply to GIMP.
+
+Included is a set of keybindings similar to those in Adobe Photoshop.
+You can find them in the ps-menurc file. To use them, copy this file
+to ~/.gimp-2.8/menurc. You can also manually change the keybindings to
+any of your choice by editing ~/.gimp-2.8/menurc.
+
+
+Have fun,
