about some major progress in making GIMP work with the Generic Graphics Library (GEGL), which will allow GIMP to handle images with more than 8-bits-per-channel among other things
. "About 5 weeks ago, I happened to pick up Øyvind Kolås, aka Pippin the Goatkeeper to stay at my place for about a week and do some hacking. After one day, without intending it, we started to do some small GEGL hacking in GIMP, just in order to verify an approach that seemed a good migration [strategy] for the future porting. [...] What was planned as a one week visit turned into 3 weeks of GEGL porting madness. At the time this article is written, about 90% of the GIMP application’s core are ported to GEGL, and the only thing really missing are GeglOperations for all layer modes.
