While the developers still work continuous on the next version of GIMP there comes, of course, the question of a release date. Will GIMP 2.8 yet reach us in 2010?
Previously on GIMP: In october 2009 GIMP 2.8 was almost done, however there were no big new features in it. Most work has been done under the surface, mostly invisible for GIMP users. The developers then decided to skip that release date and include more cool new features to make it a more famous release. The starting point for layer groups and a single window mode were made besides other features.
