I don't think we ever wanted to do a rewrite-from-scratch. What we did
since GIMP-1.2 was a rewrite of the user interface and a major
overhaul of the application core. The code is now in a state where it
makes sense to think about changing the basics but keeping most of the
infrastructure on top it intact. Whatever version number the next
release would get can only be told when it is ready.
We will probably make up a more detailed plan for the future at the
developers conference this summer. This is not a closed event; whoever
feels interested in GIMP development or simply wants to meet
developers and other GIMP users is welcome to join us. Here are a few
