is big sur issue rsolved?
#1
Has Gimp sorted out the compatibility problems with Big Sur? Some of the issues are


1. Selection not showing on Mac OS Big Sur though "Show Selection" is enabled
2. GIMP uses 40-90% of CPU while idle after migrating to Big Sur if there is an active selection
3. Very poor performance when painting.
4. Slow / laggy eraser


Last I heard the OSX programmer for Gimp is MIA and has been so for several months. Is that still the case? Huh

Although this is annoying, it's also a wake up call for us to be more appreciative for their work. No wonder why programmers leave. People LOVE to complain but send little or no praise.

Points 1 & 2 are covered by this issue: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/-/issues/5952 and it doesn't look like much progress has been made.

Points 3 & 4 should have an improvement: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/-/issues/5989 if you install GIMP 2.10.22 rev3

The writing's on the wall. I anticipate that Gimp will someday lose complete compatibility with osx

More like OSX will lose complete compatibility with the rest of the world. A family member eventually replaced an aging MacBook Pro with a Windows machine... These days going with Apple is the last decision you make, all your subsequent moves are directed by Cupertino.
