gimp 2.6.3 is not offical supported, what will not say that you can't use it.

first go to www.getdeb.net and download the new version of gimp.
you must download all the packages file per file, place them all in the same directory without other files
ex: gimp , libgimp2.0 and gimp-data
for Elyssa the Herdy packages and for Felicia them for Intrepid

now go in the folder where you have you new gimp packages that you had downloaded from getdeb
-open in terminal and type:
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

so you can enjoy the last version of gimp :D

do not install them by double-clicking the packages, because than the risk that you became dependences problems or break something is bigger
Sorry for my BAD English!!

Many thanks for that unfortunately I could only download 2.62 not 2.63 as Hardy is not accepting the latest :(
