The release notes point to a change where saving are exporting are changed:
A rather big conceptual change is that saving and exporting images now are clearly separated activities. Saving an image can only be done in the XCF format which is GIMP's native file format, able to save all kinds of information necessary for works in progress.
I'm a touch typist, and often don't use ctrl-s in GIMP unless I'm positive I'm using XCF. This also makes conceptual sense, since an export is really what you're doing if you convert between, say, an XCF and a PDF. This is a welcome change.
