Single Window GIMP Coming 27th December 2010

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

We’ve discussed the singlewindow GIMP before – even telling you how to install it! Now GIMP developer Martin Nordholt has revealed that the ‘target’ release date for version 2.8 (AKA ‘Single Window GIMP) is December the 27th 2010.


He is keen to point out in his blog post that this release date is by no means set in stone, stating: “if we have an estimated release date it will surely be misinterpreted as a definite release date, and if we don’t meet it, people will be annoyed”.

This is true, and I’m sure posts like mine won’t help people’s perceptions, however with this release surrounded with hype and so eagerly anticipated a time-frame to have in mind can do no harm, in my opinion.

He also posted a new feature of this way-off release – Multi-column dock windows!
