Early in the current development cycle we started porting existing GIMP filters to GEGL operations and using GEGL tool. This made it possible to automatically save each used combination as preset with a timestamp for a name, or manually &mdash; as a named preset. If you've been using v2.9.2 or v2.9.4, you most likely benefit from that already.

The second part of improvements started with reviewing a [https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=759601](patch) submitted by Benoit Touchette.

The dialog defaults feature will be available in GIMP 2.9.6 and, eventually, in GIMP 2.10.
The introduction of filter presets and dialog defaults gets us closer to resolving [https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63610](#63610), [https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120829](#120829), and [https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=599573](#599573), filed in 2001, 2003, and 2009 respectively.
