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.

2.6 was an improvement over 2.4

For all those slagging gimp off, 2.6 did introduce better and cleaner GUI. Although the default setup should be an all in one window approach, or at least this way for Windows users!!! Paint.Net isn't as mature but still seems to get this right. I welcome the day, Paint.net is bundled with Ubuntu.

To be honest 2.6 was the first version of gimp I actually started to like. A few more of the aforementioned UI improvements and you might call me a fan. :-)
