    Post So I'm digging through stuff about GIMP development

    and find some interesting notes here :

    Still 8 bit color for 2.8 it sounds... as more of the GEGL stuff needs to be meshed into the base...

    but here's something interesting...

    They also seem to be in a hurry to push 2.8 out the door, but I find much about the differences between 2.8 and 2.6.x

    The big deal for me is the expected brush improvements. Dynamic brush scaling and rotation, tied to tablet pressure/angle, etc. should make many things easier.
