    Default GIMP Still Has Many Lofty Features To Develop

    Phoronix: GIMP Still Has Many Lofty Features To Develop

    For those that may have extra time this holiday season to devote to open-source tasks, the GIMP graphics program still has many features they're after and aren't yet up to their v2.10 release...

    I just want a better transform tool. The current ones are so clunky and in some cases it's difficult to see what the result will be until you apply the transformation.

    Where's non-destructive editing in all this?

    I'd rather see Inkscape 0.91 to finally see the light of day. :-) Version 0.48 was released August 23, 2010.

    Additional priority features are support for filter layers, script recording and playback, smart objects, layer effects, a unified transform tool, and better support for image metadata.
    In other words, they want to have the features of Photoshop. And that sounds great, but the problem is people can't wait another 10 years when there is actually a finished product right now.

    It's kind of ironic and sad at the same time that GIMP has been downloaded literally millions of times, yet the amount of active developers is still just a handful. Also, 99% of users probably never even donated to it.

    Ancurio, sadly this happens on almost software. Few people work, a bunch of people just act like vampires.

    Yes, but on the proprietary side a lot of them pay for the software, so your developers can be full time. On the free software side, there are few who acknowledge programming takes time and time means money, but rather use it because they aren't mandated to pay. And then some of the ones who don't support the software in any way yet use it, feel like they are entitled to expect it to be better, just because.
