          High bit depth support allows processing images with up to 32-bit per color channel precision and open/export PSD, TIFF, PNG, EXR, and RGBE files in their native fidelity. Additionally, FITS images can be opened with up to 64-bit per channel precision.
          Finally high bit depth support has arrived!
          This is such a big feature. It should've been mentioned in the article right before the color management.

              It is disappointing that such important software is still stuck at GTK2!

                  Big complex software is often too awkward to upgrade things like UI toolkits if portability isn't thought about from an early point in the project. Anything Gtk+ or Gnome often have too many dependencies to be very portable and light anyway.

                  That said, important software such as Maya is still using an old version of Qt so it is quite common place to make sure you are using an operating system that has a good focus on backwards compatibility.

                    Slightly ironic, seeing as GIMP is kind of why GTK exists in the first place.
