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.

16 bit color

The drive for the implementation of GEGL in Gimp is to support 16 bit color.
This is one of the main "pro" gripes, that photoshop can support 16 bit (and more i think) and gimp only 8 bit.
Many a flaming artist rants on why you need and others one why you don't need it for certain tasks like webdesign...
