Graphics, User Interfaces "GIMP 2.8 has been talked about for more than a year and back in January there was a GIMP 2.8 release schedule by Martin Nordholts that had set the final release for the 27th of December. That date has now passed and, sadly, this major update to this leading open-source graphics program is still not close to being released."

I'm gonna take a guess why.

Incremental improvements on the 2.0 version has less priority with more development focus on the 3.0 with the said next generation imaging core and one window interface.

Mmmmm..no. Single-window interface and all the other improvements happen in 2.8. They haven't even started development on a 3.0.
