Initially the new sliders (i.e. layer opacity adjustment, etc) were
puzzling to me. Then I had my "well duh!" moment when someone
on-list mentioned that the coarse adjustment function is active with
the cursor in the top half of the slider area, the fine adjustment
function in the bottom half.
The on-canvas text editor gave me cat fits, until I started playing
with it in new empty images just to figure it out. Now I am
starting to like it a lot better than the gadget it replaces.
I lost "on the fly" brush editing via an always-open brush editor
window, but regained it via the tool options tab and a couple of
user set keyboard accelerators.
Full screen mode was not as bad as I expected, but it's just not for
me. So far every snag I have hit in GIMP 2.8 turns out to be either
something the improved or something that moved to a more logical
