Experiment with GIMP's new single window mode

It's not necessary to run dist-upgrade to make it work. If you this command, you will upgrade your ubuntu to 10.4, so watch out!

Experiment with GIMP's new single window mode

A dist-upgrade is necessary if you run 10.04 Alpha (as I did for this hint): a simple upgrade would leave the GIMP at its previous version, if already installed as stable (2.6.8). In Ubuntu 9.10, an upgrade should be enough (but I haven't tried that): 10.04 isn't out yet, so making a distribution upgrade currently should leave the main system at 9.10 (at least, if you haven't edited your Ubuntu distribution sources) - or not?

... An update: actually, the version of the currently installed unstable GIMP is 2.7.3-2010022601, even if it says 2.7.1 in the Info window.

dist-upgrade will not upgrade to 10.04.
To upgrade to a new release, you need to update your apt-get sources file.

dist-upgrade will only update packages that contain several different sub-packages say package groups. (not sure what the correct verbiage is for this)

ok. The thing is, you don't need to make that command in ubuntu 9.04 and save a lot of downloading just making sudo apt-get install gimp after putting the ppa repo. It worked for me.
