Newly added color tags improve layers management and can be set via ''Layers'' menu, ''Layer Attributes'' dialog. They are also accessible via shortcuts and available for channels and paths (we don't expect people to use it a lot, but it was too easy to implement).
The color tags feature is currently not very useful without multiple layers selection. This is something we've been meaning to do for quite a while. Last year we did a [http://gui.gimp.org/index.php/Multi-layer_selection_workgroup](basic research) on that, but we don't expect to accomplish this task in time for GIMP 2.10, unless someone contributes a very good patch. If you are interested in helping out, please talk to us.

Moreover, for people who use a lot of masks, the workflow has been streamlined. Now GIMP remembers the last type of mask initialization, and you can use key modifiers + mouse click on layer previews to create, apply, or remove masks. Additionally, there's a new button for that as well.
### Remembering Defaults Across Sessions, Improved Configurability
We had to figure out a sane way for GIMP to remember last mask initialization settings, so we devised a whole new infrastructure to remember settings of various dialogs. The user interface to adjust those settings is now live on the new ''Interface -> Dialog Defaults'' page in the ''Preferences'' dialog. See the [https://www.gimp.org/news/2016/10/06/making-settings-persistent/](Making settings persistent in GIMP) post for more details.

We also made various GIMP settings resettable in the ''Preferences'' dialog. And since GIMP is a huge app, where settings tend to accumulate over the years, we added a vertical scrollbar to keep the height of the dialog sensible. Additionally, we reorganized some of the settings, e.g. on the ''Color Management'' page.

Since there is more than one raw processing plug-in out there, we intend to eventually add a way to set preferred raw plug-in. You can contribute a patch for that.
