Graphics, User Interfaces High bit depth support, non-destructive editing (so called "effect layers") and colour management. Three hot topics in photography editing - that users have been waiting for for a long time now to appear in GIMP. Today Linux & Photography blog features an exclusive interview with Martin Nordholts, one of the core contributors to GIMP. Nordholts speaks about the current state of affairs, explains what is going on deep inside the GIMP (and GEGL) and also lifts a corner of the veil about what is to come.

A tabbed based interface would be horrible for an image editing application, if I am working on multiple images then quite a lot of the time I want to see multiple images, not have them hidden behind tabs. Although this is just a personal preference.

As for a single menu bar, 2.6 does only have 1 menu bar on the image window, there is no longer one on the toolbox.

I don't like the Paint.NET UI but that is a reasonable idea, but I suspect that the toolboxes etc. would be undocked and on a different monitor in a lot of cases.
