Version 4.00 doesn't really mark any significant changes but the previous version which was 3.99 could only be logically followed by incrementing the major number.
Version 4.40 brought in the first native 64 bit release which improved the performance of loading large images (more than 25 megapixels).
Installation and running the program. Most functions seem to work just like on Windows. There are some minor glitches in lossless JPEG transformations, so I'd recommend using a native Linux application like gThumb for it.
What does not
What was not tested
Probably some special functions and formats plugins the common user rarely needs.
