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."

I think there are a great number of hackers out there who could help on the 2.8 release. But it's a bit hard to find any reference on exactly what to help out on.

Compare with the Blender Project, quite instantly you find a "Todo" section on the developer pages with items to begin chewing on.

The same for Gnome, their Release Planning pages links to a bugzilla with all bugs needed to be fixed for 3.0 to be released.


GIMP Is down 2 key developers and is in need of GTK experts to get it out the door.
