As Mitch already pointed out, bug fixes will go into the 1.2.x branch.

We think about having a 1.3 branch which should lead into a stable 1.4
release. The goal of this branch will be to cleanup a lot of the gimp's
internal structures to make it easier to port that stuff to gimp-2.0.

The gimp-2.0 development should begin at the same time but it might take
some time before a useable application with comparable features evolves
from this effort. As we do not intend to keep the plug-in API backwards
compatible in 2.0, some parts of gimp-print will have to be rewritten
at some point.

I'm actually preparing sort of a RFC for "The future of GIMP" which I
want to present to this list pretty soon.

Salut, Sven
