    channel is locked.
  - Make the splash texts dynamic, so they are larger on larger
  - Mention pressing Enter to complete Foreground selection in the
    status bar.
  - Make sure that clicking outside any selection prevents Rectangle

  - Remove the possibility to disable script-fu.

    for third-party readers wishing to support GIMP 2.10 XCF files.
