Gimp 3 release date

Hi. I have a question. When Gimp 3 will be released ? Why the Gimp development speed is slow?

Gimp 3 release date

Hello,

Gimp 3.0 will release after Gimp 2.10. there is no fix timeline. Gimp 3.10 will be released as soon as Gimp is completely ported to GEGL (16 bit support and more). Gimp 3.0 will be released after Gimp is then ported from gtk 2 to gtk 3.
The Gimp development is so slow, because there are not enough developer working on it. It could be speed up with more developers.

Regards Tobias

Kindly educate me on the difference it will make migrating from gtk 2 to gtk 3.

Are there usability/performance issues to be directly perceived by the user?

Regards.

GTK+ 3 has several new features that makes the life of us developers easier. Also tablet support on windows will be improved.

Not unless we use the new features.

There is a major impact though: 3rd party plugins might break, especially if they use widgets from libgimpwidgets. Hence we cannot do the switch to gtk3 within the gimp 2.x series since we promise a certain level of api stability within this series. If that weren't the case we'd have switched to gtk+-3 long ago.

Bye, Simon
