I was only recently made aware that GIMP 2.8, a.k.a. ‘the one with single window mode’, had strayed off course from its intended release date of December 26th this year.
Unfortunately the GIMP team that has always been short-handed became even more shorthanded during spring 2010, when Martin [Northolts] became too busy to contribute to the project on daily basis the way he used to, thus leaving the team with just 2.5 dedicated developers.
