This year, there will be four GIMP/GEGL projects sponsored by Google Summer of Code:

So, GEGL integration advances with full power. It’s planned for GIMP 2.10 that most operations will use GEGL by default, and the following GIMP versions will make full use of the GEGL advantages, for instance 16-bit color depth operations.

Very good news. As a professional photographer I stopped using Photoshop some 5 years ago in favor of Gimp and never missed it. Except ofcourse for the lack of metatag support by Gimp, like iptc and xmp. I still need to do some workaround to get those into my images. Nevertheless, great software, and looking forward to GEGL. :)

If you can come up with a way to support legacy plugins, then I'm all in favor of that endeavor. Good look to you coders taking these challenges on. :)
