Personally I like these new changes. Alexander is quite correct about that it is notfor not wanting "light users" but adding suport which was not there for those in real need for something more. This something more is that when you work with layers, lots of ioperations, you get all this in the autosave instead of overwriting this by mistake. This is quite an important feature - overwriting advanced edits by mistake has always been a pain in the neck - also in windows based MS programs or Adobe.

Thanks for the good work.

but many posts calling for civility have come from people who want to divide the user base into two groups where one group is somehow more entitled to

You know, it's quite frustrating that after all the explanations
people still seem to get this wrong. So let's try again.

We are not separating people into better of worse users, or the
deserving and non-deserving, or entitled and not entitled. This would
not be a constructive approach.

What we _are_ doing is _focusing_ on a group of users who are
underloved by free software. We are building workflows around their
needs. We are _targeting_ those users.

Maybe not everyone can see the difference, but it's right there. Hence attributing any kind of discrimination to us would be utterly wrong. I
wish people really stopped doing that.
