Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.8.4 to GIMP 2.8.6 =================================================

Core:

- Fix saving to URIs, it was broken to only allow exporting, and fix save/export of compressed files
- Fix brush spacing for drawing in any direction - Increase the maximum size of clipboard brushes and patterns to 1024x1024
- Make sure data objects are saved when only their name was changed

GUI:

- Don't allow single-window docks to shrink smaller than their requisition
- Make sure a single-window's right docks keep their size across sessions
- Allow to change the spacing of non-generated brushes again - In single-window mode, make Escape move the focus to the canvas, and beep if the focus is already there - Be smarter about unavailable fonts, and don't crash - Make clicking the single-window's close button quit GIMP - Make view-close (Ctrl+W) only close image windows and tabs, not docks

Libgimp:

- Add SIGNED_ROUND() which also rounds negative values correctly

Plug-ins:

- Make GIMP_PLUGIN_DEBUG work again after GLib changed logging - Fix zealous crop for transparent borders

Installer:

- Add Hungarian translation

Data:

- Add a default "Color from Gradient" dynamics and tool preset

General:

- Lots of bug fixes - Lots of translation updates
