Hi from Marijke Groothuis
I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for the release of Gimp 2.8 as I want to start teaching with the software in my digital image manipulation courses at the University of Ballarat, Ballarat, Australia.
It has taken nearly 3 months to complete 2 days of work of the 8 days that were still needed on 28/12/2011 and I am beginning to fear that it won't be released in time for me to make the alterations to the teaching materials for this coming 2nd semester. I suppose I am hoping to get the message out there that it is beginning to get harder and harder to convince management that the GIMP 2.8 is the best choice for our students. I hate to have to tell students that it is going to cost them a lot of money to be taught the intricacies of image manipulation while we are so close to the release of 2.8 . Our current software will not be carried over to the new semester and so it is decision-time.
Any ideas as to how we can speed things along a bit? (I know the developers have other jobs, don't get me wrong, but 6 days of work is left, SIX DAYS!!!!)

RE: Hi from Marijke Groothuis
Problem with the 2.7.5 release is that our ICT Service dept does not want to install an "unstable" version of software. Personally I have no problems with it at all, having used this version for the last couple of weeks and not experienced any problems whatsoever.
Btw, I am very familiar with your old proverb Tongue - I was a programmer several lifetimes ago (70s & 80s) and project creep was very much in fashion in those days.
