Gimp 2.9.5 Smudge tool
The occasional report on Gimp 2.9.5 features.

The Smudge tool now has a painting capability.

Using the new parameter flow rate = 0 the smudge tool acts as before.
Increase the flow rate and the smudge tool takes the foreground colour and blends with the underlying colour.

That gradient selection under dynamics which is also in other paint tools.
