Re: Gimp 8/16 bit
In reply to Luke Kaven, Mar 31, 2013

The current stable release of GIMP (2.8.4) is 8-bit, although some filters and plugins use 16-bit color depth for internal calculations.

The current development version (2.9.x) is 16-bit.  You could download it now, but it's for experimenting, not production work.  Expect it to run slow and crash; this is pre-beta testing.  I've been having a lot of fun with it, but I wouldn't use it on deadline.

The next stable release (2.10) will be 16-bit.  The developers have not set an official release date, but are hinting at late this year.

FYI, even-numbered GIMP versions (2.6, 2.8, 2.10) are stable releases for the public.  Odd-numbered versions are for developers, testers, and adventurers.  A good selection of GIMP builds can be found here and, of course, they are all free: http://www.partha.com/
