Blender is planning a long term release ( LTS ). v 2.83 which will be available in May 2020 will be an LTS with 2 years support. Blender will come up with one LTS per year.

> LTS versions also will help to ensure that a project that started with an LTS version can be completed with the same version in a reasonable amount of time. Nice for studios with large projects, but also for add-on maintenance.

Now that they have revamped the interface in 2.8, LTS is a good move to support ecosystem and addon makers. Hardware support will also be there ( I suppose ).

@Abhi reading the verbiage, you can't help but arrive at the conclusion that this is somehow a side swipe at GIMP and it's founders / developers in much the same way as LibreNMS was with Observium.

I don't know myself. But some people say GIMP as a word has 2 drawbacks

[*]1. It is something offensive towards physically/mentally challenged people
[*]2. It is NSFW

I think Glimpse is a nice, beautiful word. Rebranding is fine as long as the software does its job.
