Graphics, User Interfaces "GIMP 2.8 has been talked about for more than a year and back in January there was a GIMP 2.8 release schedule by Martin Nordholts that had set the final release for the 27th of December. That date has now passed and, sadly, this major update to this leading open-source graphics program is still not close to being released."

Odd; this news item doesn’t link to anything that states that which the item is claiming.


I agree, the linked article contradicts the statements in the story, i.e. :

"a GIMP 2.8 release schedule by Martin Nordholts that had set the final release for the 27th of December"

According to the link, the 27th December date was an estimated date, not a 'set ... final' date. More over it was an estimate that was made 12 months in advance, so it is hardly surprising that it was not accurate.
