	I have to say there were too many replies on this Subject, instead of
just... Putting Upstream the new Version on ubuntu-updates, or whichever
makes more sense for whoever decides this.

Someone wants a bug to give this update a reason? Well, there is a
reason why this is a release candidate and not the Final. But here's the
list. :) While arguing on moving from 2.4.0RC3, you can move at once to
2.4.1, pretty much Bug Fixed.

                   GNU Image Manipulation Program
                         2.4  Stable Branch

This is the stable branch of GIMP. No new features are being added
here, just bug-fixes.
