Any news on 2.10 release date? I get that it may be difficult to say, so maybe at least some news on when some repos become available with 2.9 of decent stability? I used GIMP 2.7 for, IIRC, over a year before 2.8 got officially released and I had no problems with it, and all the major features to be in 2.8 were in 2.7.
Its a way off yet. There are still performance regressions after the move to GEGL and some subsystems need to be updated to make sense with the new capabilities. Help wanted!
Anyone know if they've got layer group masks in 2.9 yet? I was a bit annoyed that got pulled from the list of planned features for 2.8. That is in my top 5 most missed features from Photoshop that GIMP is lacking, (the others being smart objects, adjustment layers, layer effects and a proper unified transformation tool for moving, rotating and scaling that doesn't apply changes until you're finished with the tool.) Basically the sort of stuff needed to have a proper non-destructive work flow.
