What's new in this version:

Core:
- Avoid D-Bus error message when built without D-Bus support
- fix OS X min required conditional in gimpimagewindow.c
- Saving to existing .xcf.bz and .xcf.gz files didn't truncate them and could lead to unnecessarily large files
- Text layer created by gimp-text-fontname doesn't respect border when resized
- avoid seeking when saving XCF files to prevent corruption with file network shares (fixed since 2014, but not mentioned in NEWS yet)

GUI:
- Flow on Paint Dynamics editor dialog: the 'y' axis is indicating 'Rate' instead 'Flow'
- Vertical ruler shows artifacts if the status bar isn't showing
- Tablet stylus misbehaves when crossing the edge of a dock in multi-window-mode
- Disable the new "automatic window tabbing" feature introduced on macOS Sierra
- Improve the visibility of slider handles with dark themes
