And yeah, while it is nice that GIMP finally offers single pane option, that it has historically not has never been a real big deal to me for my use case.
This year, however, Darktable gets the nod for offering a highly functional GTK based FOSS photo editing/management option that doesn't also pull in the bulk of Gnome as dependencies. Sweet!!!
