Default GIMP 2.8.?

Does anyone knows something about GIMP 2.8 for FreeBSD which was out in May 2012? FreeBSD 9.1 is out long time ago too but nothing new.
I am using live Linux CD and 2.8 works for me so good but why I have FreeBSD installed?

Thanks.

I see you've already asked on the freebsd-gnome mailing list.

Porting applications with many linuxisms and keeping the ports up to date is not always an easy task. And the FreeBSD Project doesn't have the manpower available in some Linux distributions so it might take some time.

That being said, I understand FreeBSD's GIMP port is very outdated. Just be patient, or better yet port it yourself and share the patches, if you have the skills and time.
Sometimes the maintainers need a little "push". Maybe send them an e-mail.

If you can't wait, then use whatever already suits your needs best. Yes, this includes "live Linux CD", Windows or anything else... You're not tied to anything or anyone.

I will use BSD application like GIMP or Photoshop but it is difficult to find them...
I use ArtX live LINUX cd and it works very good (if someone want to try).

Adobe® Photoshop® describes a suite of proprietary, closed-source commercial products developed and marketed by Adobe Systems Incorporated. These commercial products are packaged and sold only for Windows and Mac OS.

GIMP is freely available under GNU Licensing.

(GIMP 2.8 is available with other BSDs. Both OpenBSD and NetBSD have it available as ports/packages.)
