Gimp 2.6 in July?

By at 2008-04-23 11:18:42 UTC, last updated over 14 years ago. CC BY-NC License

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.

I played with 2.5, ther's not much new to discover, the 2.6 release will in my opinion be not such a big thing as it was with gimp 2.4. but thanks for the update on the release!

OnyX - I doubt that there will be much of a feature update for GAP in the near future. however the possibilities that are offered with implementation of GEGL in GIMP are huge, also for the animation packet (as soon as it is updated).

But i think the developers will mainly work on GIMP itself - hopefully some other people bring new features to gap.

stay with blender if you need 3d stuff ;)
