Some of you might remember that in November 2013, we abandoned SourceForge
(SF) as the primary download site for the GIMP installers for Windows platforms and moved the files to our own download server, download.gimp.org
The tons of links on the web pointing to the former site made keeping the installers there as well a necessity, though - and since SF claimed that our outrage over of their "installer with benefits" was based on a misunderstanding
, this seemed to be a low-risk approach.
However - we are receiving reports
that people who get there by chance receive files of a few hundred kB, that install additional software. This is not clicks on those 'big green download arrow' ads, we've tried ourselves. SF has not responded to our inquiry yet - and we found that the maintainer of the GIMP Windows installers is locked out of that SF project now.
Please got to our own downloads page
to get the GIMP Windows installers.
