The GIMP crew has been hard at work on their GIMP 2.4 replacement, which will be called GIMP 2.6. There's a number of new features already present within the GIMP 2.6 development tree and just yesterday was the GIMP 2.5.2 testing release. GIMP 2.5.2 refines the combined Freehand/Polygon Select tool, added a dock-able dialog for managing Color tool settings, compatibility changes for the forthcoming GTK+ release, improved pop-up scale button, allow to map dynamics to hardness for the Eraser tool, added new PDB data type for transferring color arrays, and added text search to the Help Browser plug-in. These are just a few of the changes along with bug fixes and code clean-ups, but the complete GIMP 2.5/2.6 change-log can be viewed here. The development snapshots and other versions of GIMP can be acquired from their download page.
