Glad this is finally getting fixed but it's going to confuse a lot of people following older tutorials
We've known for a while that GIMP's Overlay blending mode was incorrect and identical to Soft Light mode. Now that OpenRaster file format is becoming popular in free/libre workflows, this started hurting our users, so last week based on initial analysis by +Paul Geraskin+Michael Natterer fixed this for good in the unstable branch.

The new Overlay mode uses the respective formula from PDF and W3C (SVG) specifications and thus should be identical to Photoshop's and OpenRaster's Overlay mode. The PSD and ORA loaders/savers have been fixed accordingly.

When opening (now) legacy XCF files, GIMP will automatically map the old Overlay to Soft Light during compositing, so the rendering of your old works will be preserved. For all newly created layers with Overlay mode the new formula will be used instead.

Expect this to ship in unstable GIMP 2.9 first, then in stable 2.10. Since the fix changes the file format, unfortunately we cannot backport it to 2.8.
