Nothing, GIMP is only saving in .xcf.
If you want another format, do export.

yes,
that's the default Gimp extension when saving.
to save in another file format, you have to export.
File --> export
File --> export to
and in the dialog box, select the extension you want, and hit export.

Thats exactly right, we have newer GIMP - it also supports the new single window mode, try it by selecting "Window" > "Single Window mode". Marking this as solved.
