Is the most recent version of the gd library for php version 2.0.34? Does anyone know if it is installed on most web servers like godaddy? Anyone have any comments on using the GD Library? I just started learning it so I'd like to hear anyone's comments on their experience with it.

The latest stable version is 2.0.35 - http://www.libgd.org/Downloads.Many hosts have it, it is a very popular library. For a specific company, contact their support.The GD library is useful, however there are more modern alternatives such as ImageMagick. http://www.php.net/manual/en/book.imagick.php

Does ImageMagick come installed w/ things like XAMPP or MAMP? I know the GD Library version 2.0.34 is included in MAMP. Which is used more?

ImageMagick is newer, and not as popular (yet). You can always install additional modules.
