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."

Double standards OSnews

I've noticed many submission on software not accepted while things such as totalfinder and this story about Gimp or political tirades.

Does the editors only accept news about software if it falls in their (very) narrow interest field?

OSnews has hangups or reluctance about posting hardware news, application news and even some operating system news also except if they find it interesting.
I know i submit(ted) them and see other headlines in the submission fields as well which I then google and find very interesting.

For instance
What about the release of Secunia PSI 2 that was submitted. Is this not important?

What about DDR4 RAM and a new wireless SATA announced a few days ago? This is not minor hardware news.
