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 biggest strength behind GEGL, other than allowing the program to tap into the GPU more and more if this OpenCL development works well, is to bring non-destructive editing to Gimp (see this for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_Image for an API supporting non-destructive image editing).
