- update the histogram while doing color corrections
- fixed another crash with broken plug-ins
- fixed problems on Win32 when GIMP is installed into a non-ASCII path
- fixed handling of truncated ASCII PNM files
- make sure that there's always a cursor, even for small brushes
- fixed line-drawing with a tablet and the Shift key
- added code to use the system monitor profile on OS X
- show changes to the rounded corners in the Rectangle Select tool
- reduced rounding errors in the display render routines
