Windows versions are still not up on the site, but I know people who have compiled it to Windows already. Not sure about Mac.

Yes, I saw that, linked to the Windows download in the announcement.
The JPEG error is Windows-only, right? See the bug report for the comments from the developers. As usual it's a matter of too few developers on the Windows side I think.
Yeah, good stuff!

i think to know a good workaround, the excellent Save for the web (Riot) should have no bug and is preinstalled in..
oh well i don't want spoil the surprise that will come in about 24 hours...
But if you don't want unistall 2.6 but still try 2.8 you may wish wait 1 day more...

And yet another example is copying a layer from one image to another. What used to be intuitive and simple, taking a single step is now a complete mess to figure out and takes three times as many steps (Thankfully someone on this forum explained how to do it when I asked, otherwise I'd still be trying to work it out)
But if this version is more stable then that will make it worthwhile. If this version ends up freezing and losing work just as much then I might as well switch back to 2.6. Or even go PS (bleah).
Edit - And I notice there still isn't an auto-save. Great idea leaving that out again.

I agree that perhaps the ctrl+shift+e was not the best shortcut for 'export', but who knows, perhaps people adapt to it.
Also the brush dynamics are scary, they require a help reference re-walkthrough. Also, the panning when zoomed in big images seems to jag.
What I really love about it is that the scrolling up and down of the mouse wheel in my case has been associated with the brush size manipulation, and now in version 2.8.2 I can do it while holding the left mouse button, so I change the brush size while stroking, and that is really powerful.
The Toolbox and other windows being now dockable to the main drawing window is a great feature. The addition of brush tips is also wonderful.
