 Sliders- too weird for digital painting with a tablet. I would like 
more visual feedback perhaps, like changing the color of the actual bar,
 or something more obvious. Still, it's tough to quickly just do what 
you need. Other options: shift or ctrl drag for fine tuning, or just 
slow it down once it gets below a user set size.

 Personally I love everything else, but these two things are a bigger 
part of mt digital painting workflow than the rest, so 2.6 is back. 

1 - The only weird part about the sliders (to me) is how dragging along the 
upper half adjusts the value along the slider's whole range, while dragging 
along the bottom half adjusts relative to the current value. That definitely 
takes getting used to.

2 - Indeed, brush dynamics are not as easy to adjust in 2.8 as they were in 2.6 
:(  You can hit the Edit button, unfortunately now that dynamics are made into 
their own resource type this means you can't "just" edit them any time you 
want, you have to Duplicate one of them before you will have a customizable 
dynamics matrix.  Smooth sailing once you do that, though.
