As you all know, getting 2.8 out is highest priority right now. There
are however some things that we want to fix before we make a 3.0
release. Thus, we must plan for a 2.10 release.
I have updated our milestones in bugzilla with this. After the update,
there are only 7 bugs on the 2.8 milestone:
642728 - "Function `gdk_gc_new' implicitly converted to pointer"
causes build failure
631766 - Bad performance when moving brush outline on canvas
612931 - Moving individual layer in layer group not possible with
603848 - Single-window mode is not properly session managed yet
600554 - Implement layer group transforms
596410 - gimp-image-get-filename returns NULL for imported files
51112 - clipping groups or masking groups (like in Photoshop files)
Let's focus our efforts and smash these last bugs so we can make a 2.8
release as soon as possible.
To see what we should fix for the 2.10 release, refer to the 2.10
milestone and our roadmap:
