      I just asked myself the same about The Gimp... Even Xfce is closer to an "official" Gtk3 release than The Gimp...

        They moved part of their infrastructure to gitlab, to allow developer to contribute easier.
        Guess that took some of the development resources.
        See: https://inkscape.org/en/news/2017/08...-announcement/

        Nonetheless, development is active: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inkscape/commits/master

          I actually stopped using Gimp and use Krita now even for Photo Editing, it has became good enough for most major tasks that I deal with.

            GIMP jumped the shark when they enforced the use of their own file format over other ones.

                The 2.9 devel branch of The Gimp is entirely dark coloured and makes heavy usage of symbolic icons. I just tried it half an hour ago by installing an RPM from COPR on Fedora 26. It's also not possible to maximize its window besides Fullscreen'ing it...

                  I used Affinity Photo and Designer in conjunction with Inkscape and Krita. I test Gimp but they've been dragging their feet for over a year on 2.10 so the GTK+ 3 port has been stalled. To their credit a lot of new capabilities have been added to it. Gimp 2.9.6 has been imminent for the past 8 weeks.

                    I'm not a fan of Inkscape right now. I do the Plasma wallpapers and it crashed on me at least a dozen times while trying to make the 5.11 wallpaper, and I've built its horrible memory leaks into my workflow. It's reached ~8GB of memory usage at times. It used to be rock solid; I don't know if it's a result of me stressing the software more, or a degradation in quality control, but it's becoming unusable. It also doesn't save many tool/dock positions, meaning those crashes also mean wasted time re-organizing the window.

                    I could keep ranting, but, yeah, Inkscape needs serious work. If there were a serious alternative I would take it in a heartbeat.
