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'll second that. Someone politely explained in a thread how the term "The Gimp" is a derogatory term in the US and the project managers threw a hissy fit over the mere suggestion of changing the name.

Might it be because people tend to get tired hearing same arguments in 1234567th time? Everything means something else somewhere. If you choose to understand "GIMP" as "gimp", not as acronym, the offence is clearly self-inflicted.
