# Core:
- Avoid D-Bus error message when built without D-Bus support.
- fix OS X min required conditional in gimpimagewindow.c.
- Saving to existing .xcf.bz and .xcf.gz files didn't truncate them and could lead to unnecessarily large files.

- avoid seeking when saving XCF files to prevent corruption with file network shares (fixed since 2014, but not mentioned in NEWS yet).
