Gaseous photomultipliers are strongly benefiting from the tremendous developments that micropatterned gaseous detectors have gone through in the last years. These developments triggered different possibilities of combining photocatodes and electron multipliers, leading to gaseous photomultipliers with impressive performances even when large detection areas are considered. Advances and future prospects on the technological issues and developed strategies in order to achieve high performance in many aspects, such as gain, ion- and photon-feedback, time resolution, sealed operation, and the important challenge of efficiently detect visible light, are presented. These new capabilities also lead to new possibilities of applications to fields ranging from particle and nuclear physics and astrophysics to societal challenges, which are also addressed.
