Fedora Update Notification

Name : gimp
Product : Fedora 16
Version : 2.6.11
Release : 21.fc16
URL : http://www.gimp.org/
Summary : GNU Image Manipulation Program
Description :
GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a powerful image composition and
editing program, which can be extremely useful for creating logos and other
graphics for webpages. GIMP has many of the tools and filters you would expect
to find in similar commercial offerings, and some interesting extras as well.
GIMP provides a large image manipulation toolbox, including channel operations
and layers, effects, sub-pixel imaging and anti-aliasing, and conversions, all
with multi-level undo.

Update Information:

This update adds checks to avoid heap corruption and buffer overflows when
loading GIF image files (CVE-2011-2896). Additionally, it fixes a bug which caused GIMP to print an unnecessary warning to the command line on startup.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use
su -c 'yum update gimp' at the command line.
