Gimp Release Candidate Adds The Best Feature Ever

For the longest time, my main gripe with the gimp has been with the inflexibility of the select box. Before, you had to slowly drag the mouse, watching the width/height coordinates and let go at just the right time to get a box of a particular size. I'm sure there's a plugin script out there somewhere that could readjust the box, but I tried to find one, and write one, without luck.

Today, I got rid of the the gimpshop package on my ubuntu laptop (kept crashing on select) and low and behold, I see a Gimp Release Candidate with a beautiful gimp-balloon logo. And check out the flexibility of the box select now. I am so happy! Gimp users of the world rejoice at this awesomeness!
