Gimp 2.10 is the release that stops dumping stuff into $HOME, so even if you don’t really care about the new features, it’s a worthwhile upgrade for this reason alone!
Why is that so important to you?
It’s very impolite for programs to spam things into the $HOME directory without explicit permission.
Yes, it’s extremely rude.
Can’t decide whether this is sarcasm, but 😆
I want to be able to do backups or blow away the cache without inspecting each and every .folder individually.
Do you have a link to further information? “Ctrl+F HOME” in the release notes didn’t turn up anything relevant.
It is mentioned here and here. Hope this helps!
why does gimp.org have doubleclick.net tracking… i mean it’s a GNU project… how does this happen?
