GIMP got 3 projects accepted in Googles SoC 2010!
In Googles Summer of Code students are sponsored by Google to develope new features for a certain Open Source software. This year GIMP will have three students that will be programming for GIMP in the next months.

*) Danny Robson will work on 3 new tone mapping operators for GEGL that will improve HDR workflow in GIMP. Such operators are responsible for different outcome of a basic HDR picture and these operators will bring that special and yet always a little different HDR-look into photos. His mentor is Martin Nordholts.

*) Michael Mure will be mentored by Kaja Liiv and is developing a new tool that uses Green Coordinates to deform an image. You can place a so-called "Cage" on a picture (a closed polygon). Then you'll be able to deform the cage and the image will be deformed accordingly. This is a technique that allows high quality deformation while preserving the shape of an image.

*) Chen Yan and Joao Bueno (his mentor) will work on more intuitive drawing options that can be done directly on-canvas. The goal is to make painting much more accessible while minimizing the need of open dialogues. The workflow shall be improved in general by reducing the amount of clicks needed for a certain action.

In the next weeks students have time to get to know their mentors and become familiar with the whole environment of the software organization. We wish you fun and good luck on programming. We as "normal" GIMP users will however not get into touch with the new features until GIMP 2.8 or maybe GIMP 2.10/3.0 is released ;-)

can't wait for 2.8! (:

Yes it is, 2.7 is the development version of 2.8, when most of the bugs are worked out it becomes 2.8.

No, some of them though. Even numbered releases are the stable versions and odd numbered are the beta/development versions. Explore the gimp site and you find all kinds of cool stuff, like these, http://www.gimp.org/about/splash/

Well the only bug i have run into so far is the preview window doesn't close once you open it, if your in single window mode.I believe this bug has been reported already.

I like the way you can tab each open image on top now though.
That is quite nice.

I do have the compiled version uploaded to MediaFire if any Windows users want to try it out.
Use at your own risk though.So far no harm has come to my Windows XP platform.

Its like a portable version, click the wilbur icon and it will run.
No need to install.
