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 biggest issue with GIMP _IS_ that all of those windows, at least on my 11.04 version of Ubuntu, is a separate entry in the task bar/dock. Each has to be tabbed through. It is VERY annoying and adds enormous, unwarranted, clutter to the screen.


Wasn't that already changed a long time ago? You still have this behavior on Ubuntu 11.04? Maybe it's an option you have enabled, by default GIMP uses only one taskbar entry.

The multiple taskbar entries you talk about always were my biggest problem with GIMP too. So I've been fine with GIMP since they changed that. Still, I look forward to the Single Window mode as well.
