The path generated when doing Select>From path with an ellipse selection is counter-clockwise in Gimp210, when it was clockwise in Gimp 2.6 and 2.8.
This breaks a very common use-case with text-along-path (demoed in countless youtube videos);
- Create a circle selection
- Select>To path
- Create a text layer
- Layer>Text along path
In 2.8 the text is laid correctly, in 2.10 it is laid backwards (see the two attachments).
