"A while back I announced the creation of a schedule for GIMP
2.8 development. I've made sure to keep this schedule up to date,
and after a bunch of initial adjustments such as postponing some
feature and adding others, the schedule has now stabilized a bit.
The estimated date for a release candidate is still in December
2010. Tracking progress with a schedule really helps you to feel in
control of development. The 2.4 development cycle which I were
around in the end of, and the 2.6 development cycle which I were
fully part of, were more chaotic with no commitment to a delivery
date. This is perfectly fine for many, but I prefer structured
"As far as development goes I have continued working on the UI
in general and single-window mode in particular."
