Unfortunately yes [1], a new group of shitheads with "better sense of
taste" got into project and they know better than users what is more
comfortable. There are dozens of requests on bugzilla [2] to bring the
menu back to the toolbox, even separate project dedicated to make this
menu visible again in the toolbar [3]. All this is rejected, even no
option to make it work is being left. The old work and good habits are
destroyed with no alternative. The only arguments of Martin Nordholts
that I had talked with is that I "have no taste" because he knows no
"another program that has two main menus" (*) and so "There is no
arguing this, we won't add the menu back. Period.". I don't understand
why they don't want to leave this menu in toolbox as user choice
option. I only hope this kind of stuff never happens on FreeBSD

(*) Blender3D can have dozens of menus on the screen, but this was no
argument to the guy.
