I'm sure the author(s) feels that it's the best thing since sliced
bread, however, differentiating between save and export in newer gimp is
a ridiculous waste of time. it's so annoying and in efficient that I
feel the need to chime in against it and strongly hope this change will
be reversed in a future release.
In the nearly 10 years of using the gimp I can't think of a single time
where this would be useful. I've never had a problem differentiating
between xcf and other formats. That use case is covered quite nicely by
"save a copy".
If it's not broken...
