Yes, that's basically the short-term plan.

I would rather expect more 2.x releases than another major version
jump with another 3 year development cycle. Now that the code is quite
well organized, we should be able to carefully add new features
without giving up stability. This will allow us to a more frequent
stable releases. Our users will benefit from this since they get
access to new features shortly after they are introduced. However,
more detailed plans for the time after the 2.2 are supposed to be made
at this years GIMP developers conference.
