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."

This is good news. Once, I went to the GIMP channel to ask for help. In return, I got scolded, insulted, offended and asked to never come back, for no apparent reason.

Jason Bourne would never let it happen. He'd just shoot everybody dead. You must be an impostor ;)

From my experience here is how these discussions usually go. Someone pops up and starts talking about this or that Photoshop feature not quite explaining what it does or explaining, but then saying that GIMP should do it just like that otherwise there's no chance for GIMP to be used seriously. Having heard that argument for last 10+ years developers fret and all hell goes loose.

It's how 99% of such discussions go. The person who started it would never admit (s)he could have done a better job at asking the question, because "the client is always right".

If you were one of the 1% when you were really polite, then of course I'm sorry to hear that.
