Script-fu is still available in 2.99 and nowadays we get a very active
contributor for it. So it's even improving. :-)

As for G'MIC, it is available for GIMP 2.99 too, though maybe not on all
platforms, and it probably "breaks" at nearly every dev release (as we
progressively change the API here and there). So there is indeed often a
short span of time where it's non-available. Of course, not advising you to
use 2.99 either as it's still marked as "unstable" releases (so to be used
carefully), but just saying that these 2 points are not hugely broken and
there is no doubt to me that they will will be available with GIMP 3.0 (and
no API break for a long time then!). :-)
