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."

Your concerns are understandable, but invalid. The single-window mode is entirely optional. It's up to you whether you want using it or not.

As for dockables, 2.8 actually has lots of improvements there, including docking side by side. So you can actually take e.g. Tools Options dialog and dock it to the right from Toolbox. Or you can keep Toolbox in the left side all alone, and then dock Layers to the left of the usual right group of docks so you can always see all the complex hierarchy of layers. It works just fine in both modes.
