Gimp 2.10.8 Change Foreground Color dialog

Hi. I am not a new user to Gimp but the new Change Foreground Color dialog in 2.10.8 isnt making much sense to me. Does anyone have any good resources I can go to to learn more about its updated features?

Thx.

I am probably just a step in front, The Gimp docs have not yet caught up, As I understand it the developers need contributors.

https://docs.gimp.org/2.10/en/gimp-dialogs-content.html

If you have come from Gimp 2.8 it is worth comparing the difference in the interface.

If you have Hue-Saturation-Value (HSV) and 0..to..255 enabled there is not much difference other than placement of the sliders and slightly different tabs for displaying the 'color-wheel' see: screenshot 1

AFAIK the default is not HSV it is Lightness-Chroma-Hue (LcH) using a percentage 0..to..100 A percentage because 0-225 values for 8 bit images does not fit with 16 bit and higher images. see: screenshot 2

Why all that magenta in the sliders, it comes from the Color Management setting for out of gamut colours. No real way that I know of to turn that off.

hope this makes a bit of sense
