OK, I’m not native, maybe I mess up the wording.
What I mean is that I’d like to be able to keep using GIMP without loss of power or functionality.
I know perfectly well about Python2 (I code in Python). It would be a pity if for this reason GIMP would get worse than it was until now.
Right now, speaking purely as a user, the functionality and the user experience is getting worse, unfortunately, it’s not even staying the same. This is always a negative thing, for any software, from the user point of view.
I needed to come up with workarounds to keep doing what I was doing before. Ideally, a tool should never get worse, at the minimum it should stay the same (also here I don’t know exactly how to express it). Getting better is a plus (optional, let’s say).
Please, note I’m not complaining here, I know fully well how hard it is to keep GIMP as it is, and I’m indefinitely grateful for just having it. But I think it’s fair to say that this situation with Python is really a pity at the moment. GIMP did get worse for me in the past weeks/months. And it does not look brighter in the immediate future (unless I stick to these workarounds).
