This week marks twenty years since the start of the GIMP open-source image editing program.

There is this blog post out today looking back at GIMP's start and the current state along with work towards GIMP 3.0.

GIMP 2.9 unstable is expected in the immediate future and will have a full-functioning GEGL port, 16/32-bit per channel processing, basic OpenEXR support, new tools, and much more. This work will be stabilized as GIMP 2.10. After GIMP 2.10, completion is expected of the GTK3 port and other changes.


A new GIMP.org web-site was also pushed out as part of GIMP turning twenty.
