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."

From what it seems it's pretty much due to a very low number of developers. From this :http://libregraphicsworld.org/news.php?readmore=667

we learn that there are 3 core developers, one of which have been busy with other things since spring 2010. Given the insanely low amount of developers for such a huge piece of software I'm amazed at how much they've actually been able to do. From what I've read there something around 20 developers working on Phothoshop, full-time, handpicked for their expertize.
