A book by MIchael J. Hammel, _The Artist's Guide to Gimp Effects_,
published in 2007, states that the "next release" of Gimp is
scheduled to offer the CMYK color model. But that seems not to have
occurred, alsthough there is a CMYK preview mode.
Is CMYK color model off the agenda for Gimp? It has been under
discussion for years. Other Open Source products, such as Krita
and Scribus, will work in that model. but they lack the capabilities
of Gimp. So is there any hope?
