I read about it all over the net - the 2.6 should have it. I said I would give it a try. And I even checked the use gegl lib or how they call it in the colors menu. Yet, I open a 16bit png and I save a copy and voila! it's 8bit. So is Gimp moving on or just another OSS marketing crap?

And the answer is "in a few years". It does not have 16bit support. Only a shade of hope with the new backend. Which was impossible before. The rest is just crappy marketing distorting search engine results.
