the new location for the colors menu makes sense where it is, don't you

they are moving around the filters menu now in the development version,
just so you are warned for your next upgrade.  there will probably be
some changes in the Xtns menu as well.  when you see the changes, stop

and about dynamic text.  it was never included with the gimp tarball, it
needed to be installed by the user.  the plug-in was written by and
maintained by marco lamberto http://the.sunnyspot.org/gimp/plugins.html

maybe a note to the developer might inspire him to update the plug-in.
