Re: [Gimp-user] Gimp-2.8_Save and save as bad behavior

So please, don't count my silence so far as indifference...

Likewise... my silence is not indifference... I LOVE the new behavior.  For what I do most, which is 
creating/editing images with multiple layer/mask support, the change is EXTREMELY welcome.   

First you have gotten rid of the annoying popup windows telling me I am loosing data when "saving" to 

However, MOST IMPORTANTLY, the change now prevents an change being made with layer, mask, or other non JPEG 
functionality support, saving to jpeg, and the accidentally closing the image without first saving to xcf to 
ensure those changes are preserved.  While it did not happen often in 2.6, it did happen enough to really 
appreciate the new behavior.  

Also, for me... EVEN if I hated the new behavior, for me the new features such as resource tagging, brush 
dynamics(I use a pen/tablet), Layer Groups(though really wish the masking would work on groups.. but will 
have to wait for 2.10 for that), and other new features are well worth the small change in routine.  Of 
course, this does not even count all of the upcoming changes which will make life so much easier in 2.10, 
3.0, and beyond such as layer adjustment masks, etc.  For these features alone, I would gladly change my long 
standing habits.  

I also want to express my deep appreciation and respect for you guys who spend countless hours of your free 
time with little to nothing in return.  As a few others have noted, I also am getting really tired of hearing 
all of the people acting like children who are not getting their way.  I mean seriously, why keep arguing?   
The decision has been made, it was made on purpose, it was provided YEARS in advance for those who actually 
gave a DAMN about their input being heard so that they could provide their input(and in some cases ,their 
input allowed for some slight tweaks to be made while still following the direction the product wanted to 

Bottom line, if you don't like the new behavior please note your complaint ONCE and then move on... decide if 
you will relearn behaviors to accommodate the new GIMP UI, roll back to a previous version of GIMP(and thus 
never get new features again), fork the code, or find a new piece of software.   This constant back and forth 
is pointless trolling... your not going to win and your just doing more to alienate the developers.  Perhaps 
YOU may want GIMP 2.6 to be the perfect GIMP, but you risk ruining for everyone who either don't care about 
the new save vs export or those who like it from loosing the developers(and thus future updates) of the
