Graphics, User Interfaces "GIMP 2.10's core will be 100% ported to GEGL, and all of the legacy pixel fiddling API for plug-ins is going to be deprecated." I'll honestly admit I have no idea what they're on about (I can't know everything about everything), but it appears to be quite a big deal.

The whole of the graphics core has been moved into their own graphics core library (GEGL).

The big deal will come if other alternative UI can be written (by third parties?) with a more sensible user interface that is easy to used by beginners, including children. In theory this development should make this easy to do.


That's nice, can things like web applications, CLI programs and other things use this library? I see a lot of potential in this.
