    For your better dreams, let me say that GIMP 2.10 is going to bring 32 Bit color depth, HDR support and non-sRGB color spaces. That were some of the first features of GIMP 2.9...

    By the way Cinepaint, a famous fork of Gimp, was the first to support HDR and deep colors...

      Hmm. The 2.10 dev version I am running has option of 8, 16, 32 bit integer or 16, 32 bit floating point colour depth. I guess you have never even looked at 2.9/2.10

        Tell that to the .NET Core team. They replaced the entire CLI toolchain between RC1 and RC2.

          ha! I haven't thought about cinepaint in years...

          I contributed a patch to fix a build issue, years and years ago... cinepaint was pretty handy with it's onion-skinning feature, HDR support, etc... it definitely had it's quirks and bugs, but if you worked around them, it was pretty good.

            I've only experienced the excruciatingly slow load times everyone complains about on Windows.
            yes, I'm using it on windows. fonts is one part of the problem. try to install additional brushes and it will probably be slow also on linux.
