Yes, there is a downgrade package called 'Gimp 2.4' that will give
you the obsolete menus you described.
Chances are, there is nothing missing; it just isn't where you expect it to be.
1. there is no script-fu menu any more (although there is a
'script-fu' submenu in the filters menu, which AFAIK contains just the
script-fu console). Script-fu now register in appropriate menu
locations according to their respective function -- for example logo
creation scripts are registered in File->Create->Logo, IIRC.
2. the Windows->Dockable Dialogs menu is probably what you actually
want when you talk about the DIALOGS menu.
3. various other rationalizations and reorganizations of the menu
structure have been done since your book was written.
