    Default GIMP 2.8 Is Struggling To Make It Out The Door

    Phoronix: GIMP 2.8 Is Struggling To Make It Out The Door

    GIMP 2.8 has been talked about for more than a year and back in January there was a GIMP 2.8 release schedule by Martin Nordholts that had set the final release for the 27th of December. That date has now passed and, sadly, this major update to this leading open-source graphics program is still not close to being released...

    Geez, I hope the implications of the headline weren't intentional.

    the community really needs to get organized and give this guys some serious help.

    2.8 is going to be an epic release and is sad that they only doing this with 2 contributors...

    Games on linux is gettings tons more attention than other important areas like graphics design. I think there's a lot everyone can do in this key area to help.

    Even a small promo like "help gimp reach 2.8 and finally get mono-window support" could help a lot.

    If it doesn't support more than 256 shades of gray after ten years of waiting, it is still gimped.

    there are projects that need "help" far more important than gimp (ie graphics drivers) and the community isn't big enough to help them

    there are a million different projects doing the same thing - ffs how many video editors or music players do we need- and as a result of that resources and help are low

    thats open source

    you either accept that some things wont be on time or use something else

    I would settle for just one good and full featured video editor in linux. Unfortunately that hasn't come about yet.

    Your best bet is probably Kdenlive.

    yes, i will also accept global warming and keep on driving my big truck instead of riding my bike or taking public transportation the majority of times, because like you said we normal people cant do anything about it and need to accept everything as is..
