"Sven Neumann is one of the core developers on the
GIMP, a freely distributed program for image manipulation.
He recently got back from the first ever GIMP Developers
Conference and gives us some useful information both on the
upcoming GIMP 1.2 release as well as the next generation of the
"Jeremy: The current development release of the
Gimp is 1.1.23 and it has seemed pretty stable to me thus far. When
do you anticipate a release of Gimp 1.2?
[Sven:] Heh, everyone is asking that. Well,
unfortunately we managed to introduce new bugs into the latest
releases while fixing other severe bugs. Version 1.1.23 is the
first in the series of preview releases which apparently does not
have any major show-stoppers anymore. There's however still an
ever-growing number of open bug reports. We'll have to dig our way
through these and try to close them all. I will not set a release
date here, but I can state that we are close."
