installing older plug-in

rich404
The Gaussian Blur plug-in was significantly changed at some point in recent
months.  When used as a keyboard shortcut, it used to retain the prior blur
radius values (et. al.) and would simply work by hitting the Enter key (which
acted the same as hitting "OK"), i.e., two quick keystrokes  Now, the radius
needs to be re-set for every single usage, (either manually, with a Preset, or
with a click near "Size X"), the Enter key stopped working, and the selection
tool type also gets reset, (whereas before, it wouldn't).  I have a team of
several people, and they each have to make hundreds of blurs per hour, so this
recent change is highly annoying and time-consuming.

Since GIMP is open source, I had a thought that perhaps there would be a way
that we could simply resurrect the earlier plug-in version, so my question is:
How?

(We're only GIMP users, not developers.)

Thank you!

You can redo the previous filter, and press alt+O for applying the dialog, and
there is a recently used preset.

You can hire a developer to forward port the old version of the plugin. The
sources are at https://www.gimp.org/source/ . Note that I am available for
commissions (see https://www.shlomifish.org/work/hire-me/ ) but you may
naturally opt to hire someone else.
