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."

What about the release of Secunia PSI 2 that was submitted. Is this not important?

Considering there are ten million of these kinds of tools, no. You'd have to make a strong case as to why this one is more important than all its equivalents - and you didn't.

Also, I think we can all agree that the GIMP is in a whole different ballpark.

What about DDR4 RAM and a new wireless SATA announced a few days ago? This is not minor hardware news.

I didn't see it in the submission queue. Even if it was there- we have to choose our battles. We're not Engadget or Ars, with boatloads of funding and a team the size of Texas. The OSNews team is basically me - and that's it. I do 95-99% of the editorial work, and expecting me to be able to cover everything is not reasonable.

I do my best, but if I have to make choices, then hell yes I'm going to choose the things that interest me the most.
