Graphics, User Interfaces It's here: the GIMP 2.8. Its biggest feature is something that many, many people have been requesting for as long as I can remember: single-window mode. No longer do you have to fiddle with a gazillion palette and dialog windows (unless you choose to do so, of course). Great work by the team.

The funny thing is that I actually welcome single-window mode for similar reasons.

I do have two monitors, but since my Wacom tablet only has the aspect ratio for one anyway, I prefer single-window mode because it means that I can now seriously consider moving to a tiling window manager without having a ton of hacks to keep my GIMP layout proper.

It helps that GIMP's single-window mode is pretty much exactly what I'd already been doing by hand.

It's too bad it doesn't let me tear off the results of "New View" so I can see an alternate zoom level on my second monitor, but that's a feature for another day.
