Manual Update Kindle On Mac

Browse through the list and tap on the item that you’d like to download to your Kindle. Provided your device is connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular connection, the content will be downloaded. In some cases, you might need to download and install more than one update. Plug your Kindle into your computer. Once it appears as a drive, drag and drop the update file to your Kindle.

Amazon updated their desktop reading app Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac to version 1.19, it is a big step as the last major version 1.17 was released several months ago.

The Kindle for PC/Mac 1.19 has three major improvements:

  • Added support for the enhanced typesetting books. The enhanced typesettings engine improves the way Kindle books are formatted.
  • Improved the search functions.
  • Added text-to-speech functions, it only work on books which support TTS functions.

Among all these important new features, the first one is the most important feature, and it’s also the worst new feature in my point of view. Let me explain why.

The enhanced typesettings engine requires the books be downloaded as .kfx extension name. This format of Kindle book is impossible to convert or decrypt (remove DRM).

Update: On 18th, October 2017. The software called Epubor Ultimate makes it possible to remove DRM from KFX books.

You can buy this software with 20% off here:

  • Epubor Ultimate for Windows 20% off
  • Epubor Ultimate for Mac 20% off

The KFX books are initially going live on Kindle Paperwhite 2 and later generations. In old days, if a book is downloaded as .kfx format in our Kindle eReaders, we can download them to computer with Kindle for PC/Mac reading app as .azw format, then easily remove DRM from them.

From now on, if our Kindle is Paperwhite 2 and later generations, we will not be able to remove DRM anymore, then we won’t be able to convert to print them anymore.

In this situation, if we still need to remove DRM, we have two solutions:

  1. Find a Kindle which is no later than Paperwhite 1. The books downloaded to Kindle Paperwhite 1 and previous generations are .azw3, we can easily decrypt them with Kindle Serial Number.
  2. Download old version of Kindle for PC/Mac, I would recommend version 1.17.

Download Kindle for PC 1.17
Download Kindle for Mac 1.17

Why 1.17? Amazon finally would stop support for old version of Kindle desktop reading apps. Now Amazon has already abandoned version 1.14. As the most recent old version, 1.17 can last more days.

There is a hot discussion thread on MobileRead forum about the new version of Kindle desktop reading app and the coming DRM removing jeopardy. Most of eBook fans are holding negative views about the future of DRM removing, while some people think there definitely will be a way to crack the .kfx book in the future.

However, you can also check that thread and also share your thoughts about this issue.

Current Stable Version

Get it on our development downloads page.

GIMP for Unix-like systems

Manual

If available, the official package from your Unix-like distribution is the recommended method of installing GIMP!

The flatpak build is new and has known limitations, though it will likely provide faster updates, following GIMP releases closely.
Therefore choose your installation medium according to your needs.

Flatpak build available in: x86-64, ARM and AArch64.

Flatpak additional instructions

The flatpak link above should open your software installer and prompt you to install GIMP. Yet it may not work out-of-the-box on some platforms since the flatpak technology is new. If that is the case, ensure flatpak is installed and if clicking the link still does not prompt to install GIMP, then manually install by command line:

flatpak install https://flathub.org/repo/appstream/org.gimp.GIMP.flatpakref

Once installed, it will be made available exactly the same way as other applications (menus, desktop overview, or any specific application launch process used by your desktop).
If this is not the case, we suggest to report a bug to your desktop or distribution asking for proper support of flatpak. In the meantime, you can still run it by command line (not as the recommended method, only a workaround):

flatpak run org.gimp.GIMP//stable

This installation will also provide regular update. You don't have to come back on this page and install again (it will not work!) when a new version of GIMP is released. Instead if your distribution and/or desktop has a good support for flatpak, it should propose to perform updates.
Once again, if your distribution does not have proper support, you can always fall back to using the following command line:

flatpak update

Systems without flatpak support

GIMP can also run on Solaris and is available for the BSD family of systems such as FreeBSD and OpenBSD.

Please refer to the documentation for your Unix-like system on the installation of software.

GIMP for macOS

Updated on 2021-01-31: GIMP 2.10.22 DMG revision 3
Performance improvements on Big Sur and on previous macOS versions

The download links above will attempt to download GIMP from one of our trusted mirror servers. If the mirrors do not work or you would rather download directly from our server, you can get the direct download here.

Supported OS: macOS 10.9 Mavericks or over

Since the 2.8.2 version, GIMP runs on OSX natively. No X11 environment is required.

Native build

The official GIMP 2.10 DMG installer (linked above) is a stock GIMP build without any add-ons. Just open the downloaded DMG and drag and drop GIMP into your 'Applications' folder.

The SHA256 hash sum for gimp-2.10.22-x86_64-3.dmg is: 844dc06731cbd8ccaa6ffd4e0c74ad49ed1ecb6ae65db71988102acb6c219d56

Check it on VirusTotal: gimp-2.10.22-x86_64-3.dmg

Older Downloads

Previous installers for OSX can be found here: download.gimp.org.

Macports

An easy way to compile and install GIMP and other great Free software on your Mac is by using Macports. The installer allows you to choose from a large directory of packages. To install gimp using Macports, you simply do sudo port install gimp once you have Macports installed.

Last we checked, the GIMP port file pointed to the current stable release and we have reports from people who've built GIMP successfully this way.

Homebrew

Homebrew is similar to Macports and provides packages (aka formulas) to install, either by compiling them from source or by using pre-made binaries. There are indications that there is now a formula for GIMP, installable with: brew tap homebrew/cask && brew cask install gimp.

NOTE! Please be aware that it was announced recently that Homebrew is using analytics. To turn this off in homebrew then run: brew analytics off
You can read more about this on Brew Analytics.

Fink

Fink is a package repository that offer mostly precompiled binaries. It provides the apt-get command known to e.g. Debian and Ubuntu users, and installing GIMP is as easy as sudo apt-get install gimp once you have installed the Fink installer.
If there's no binary package, then fink install gimp will compile GIMP from source.

Disclaimer: we haven't been able to determine if it is possible to install or build recent GIMP from Fink. Last we checked, GIMP 2.6.12 appears to be the most recent GIMP package that is offered there.
