When I either
Create a new layer, or
Save a layer under a new name, or
Add an existing layer to a project
The case of the name that appears by default in the layer list always has the first letter capitalised regardless of the filename on the disk.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Used to be optional - now the layer names are always formatted (ie. first letter of each word is turned to uppercase; see 6e31fccc5dc41706b9933a3bd4a11f8d49523840)
