I was not aware that a revision was the same as a point release.
Correct me if I am wrong, but do the revisions contain anything new 
except from security fixes and bugfixes?
Has any actual development, like GIMP 1.0 to GIMP 1.2, happened 
between revisions?

I am sorry if I confuse point releases with revisions.
What I meant with point releases was versions like 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2. 
Not revisions like 2.2r1, 2.2r2, etc.

Best regards
