Gimp 2.6 in July?
The release cycles of upcoming stable versions of GIMP are being shortened as the developers decided after the GIMP 2.4. release. In the last days and weeks it has come clear that the release of GIMP 2.6. is coming definately in this summer and probably already in July!
This is also the time where mid-term-evaluations will take place in the Google Summer of Code Project as Sven Neumann said in the mailing list. Well we can only hope that the developers make it until then. We all appreciate the next stable release in July!
GIMP 2.6 will have new tools such as a polygon selection, updated tools as the text tool, a new window management and of course lots of other things beyond the surface which will make the road clean for non destructive image editing.
