Martin Nordholt (interview) started a thread on GIMP’s developers mailing list saying:
We are making pretty good progress towards GIMP 2.8 which has turned into an “everything but GEGL” release. I think it would make sense to also go for a single-window mode in 2.8 and not 2.10 as originally planned.
I intend to start working on this asap, and peter will work on a UI spec as soon as he gets time. If you have objections, please speak up.
Obviously, quite a few people spoke up (read the thread).
This also prompted Peter Sikking (GIMP’s UI designer) to blog about the issue: why this is desirable, what are the advantages and problems, etc. Peter also introduces the “image parade” to see the currently open and recently used images. Very interesting stuff (ie: read the blog post).
While it is always good to see progress in open source software, my personal taste would have been to get 16 bits support so that GIMP gets actually *usable* for photographic work. Still, kudos to the GIMP’s team for their work and best of luck with GIMP 2.8.
(But hey, based on how constant I am at updating this blog, who am I to lecture others??)
Does the GEGL library supports Open CL or any kind of GPU acceleration?
I think the best move for GIMP would be supporting Photoshop Plug In’s.
One of the GSoC projects this year is OpenGL based buffers and operations in GEGL.
Actually, 16 bit is not as critical as people make it out to be. After all, Photoshop didn’t go 16 bit until fairly recently and yet design professionals had no problem editing images with it long before then.
I kind of agree with you. I don’t care either way for the single window thing and for most of the new things in 2.8. I guess many of the new features target new users and graphists rather than photographers…
I would have really liked that the developpers concentrate on things such as ajustement layers. 16-bit would be nice, too.

What needs to be understood is that changes in the high bits department should be gradual. It doesn’t makes sense releasing GIMP with available 16/32 bit patch when it works just with PNG and with just a few tools.
Great to see updates again. Tip: next post you can cover the new dlraw raw developer: dlraw.sourceforge.net
I’ve gone with GIMP and will never go back to photoshop. Changes like single window I’m willing to adapt to.
I’ve never really got the 16 bit argument myself. I’ve never found myself needing it, even for monochrome work. I have noticed that gimp can be almost impossibly slow when working at 300dpi resolution. That actually did force me to use PS to edit a photograph that I was printing once, but even in PS I’ve never worked outside of 8 bit.
I’m curious about it. And also, if we get 16 bit.
The UI change isn’t important for me: it doesn’t add any new feature to Gimp for my workflow. 16Bit is essential … why ? Check out http://www.colorfolio.com/infobase/16bit.pdf
