I just have to flank in with a little comment here.

In the open source world work can also be made when companies hire
people to implement a certain feature. Unfortunately there haven't been
so much interest yet from companies to hire people to work on GIMP.
Personally I hope that will change, and I have some plans on how to do
that, but that's a post-2.4 subject.

Regarding when 2.4 is released, it should be out pretty soon, I'd guess
some time this week, the next week, or the week after that.
