Can anyone tell me if the GIMP has or is going to get Layer Blending like in Photoshop, and which version of GIMP? You know, the slider that selectively changes opacity. And while I'm here, does anyone know iiif there is a good deferred rendering program (like MRI's Live Picture) for Linux available?
