    Phoronix: GIMP Developers Prepare For A Busy 2019 With Inching Towards GIMP 3.0

    The GIMP team has posted their 2018 redux covering the debut of GIMP 2.10 and the various improvements they focused on over the past year. Additionally, they provided a sneak peak of where they will be focusing their development efforts for 2019...

    GTK2 really should bite the dust already. Gimp is a major user of it still. What about inkscape? When is it switching to GTK3? Audacity is another one of those.

      Adjustment/filter layers, one of the most asked feature, hopefully will make it into GIMP3.

        I think they are trying to cram too much into one release.
        I would really like to see a GIMP version powered by GTK 3.0 as soon as possible. I don't want the GTK3 to be held up by lots of other unrelated things such as color conversion and GEGL.

          But in the end, GIMP is about image processing and not a GTK tech demo. ;-)

            Absolutely. But I wouldn't use it it used GTK 1, Motif or Tk.
            I mostly use GIMP to do very basic operations.

              Technically, Audacity is written using wxWidgets, but a quick google didn't clear up whether it's wxGTK or Audacity or both that need to change to support GTK+ 3.x.

                wdWidgets was already ported to GTK 3.0 some time ago, but it has quite a few issues.

                  Feels like it would benefit them just to switch to Qt point blank.

                    Being GTK's place of birth, it would be ironic if they switched to Qt.

                    I dislike how GIMP gets all the attention, despite being 10 years behind Photoshop and Krita being better...
