We keep announcing this for quite a while. As soon as 2.4 is done, we
will start to port some internals to GEGL. Since we don't want the next
development cycle to last forever (again), it remains to be seen how
much effect this will have feature-wise. It might turn out that GIMP 2.6
becomes a GEGL driven version of GIMP that provides pretty much the same
feature set as GIMP 2.4 and only uses GEGL internally.

Well, for GIMP 2.6 and beyond we will need a roadmap. But everyone
should be busy hacking on 2.4 or preparing the release, so let's wait
until that is done.
