Graphics, User Interfaces High bit depth support, non-destructive editing (so called "effect layers") and colour management. Three hot topics in photography editing - that users have been waiting for for a long time now to appear in GIMP. Today Linux & Photography blog features an exclusive interview with Martin Nordholts, one of the core contributors to GIMP. Nordholts speaks about the current state of affairs, explains what is going on deep inside the GIMP (and GEGL) and also lifts a corner of the veil about what is to come.

Sure, I'll just pull my trusty old C book and learn programming and submit a patch. Or ... maybe I'll try another project, or maybe I'll buy a commercial application. Or maybe if the developer is not an ass, I'll make a donation.

Nothing wrong with SDI, but they could do it right, you know. I mean ... I want to see only documents on my taskbar, not the toolbox, the layer palette, the swatches and so on ...

Also, let me tell you, as a user of some open source software, it is very irritating when developers ask people to submit patches just to shut them up. Reality check - probably only 1% of the users of most open source applications are programmers. And probably only half of them have the skills to submit patches. And probably only half of that would also have the time.

Sorry to burst your bubble, Mr. Developer.
