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."

GIMP has only 2.5 developers available

A least, that's what post at Libre Graphics World says:
"Unfortunately the GIMP team that has always been short-handed became even more shorthanded during spring 2010, when Martin became too busy to contribute to the project on daily basis the way he used to, thus leaving the team with just 2.5 dedicated developers. This is quite unfortunate, since the only big chunk of work left to do for 2.8 is the optional single-window mode, for which the final design spec is also missing at the time."

Lies, there is millions of open source coders in interwebz contributing all time thanks to Power of Open Source. Real reason why it's not out is because they are making this amazing new feature that will leave Photoshop light years behind.
