With word this morning of Electronic Arts making plans with Ubuntu
and now the release of GIMP 2.8, some may think that hell has frozen over.
I've been writing about GIMP 2.8 for the past three years
and originally was going to come around Christmas of 2010
but was struggling to make it out the door
with multiple delays
Last year the GIMP developers finally got the single window mode working
and other new features
. In April of this year it finally hit an RC state
and is now being released.
Among the many GIMP 2.8 features that have built up include the single window mode, on-canvas text editing, enhanced resource management, extended paint dynamics, and much more.

Now it's time to start looking forward to GIMP 2.10 that will be ported to the GEGL core
