The button " Show change history" - I support this idea!

Examining waveforms (visually) was one of the original reasons that Dominic created Audacity, so I think there is still some validity in that. Audacity was never intended as an "audio player" and there are much better applications for that purpose.

I'd guess that not warning when there have been no changes at all, would not be too difficult, though it probably would increase the number of support requests: "Audacity is asking me to save my project when I haven't changed anything" when in fact they have changed "something" (such as the zoom level) but they don't realise that that is a "change".
The zoom level is not on the Undo stack, so not in the History window. In fact people complain when they open a project, change the zoom level or cursor position, then that change cannot be saved in the project unless they make some edit that triggers undo.

Changing the track gain is an action that may look like "nothing" but triggers Undo.

What you are suggesting is extremely dangerous giving the known propensity of users to delete files after importing them. If they have exported the project contents without further (audio) changes, yes we might then let them quit without saving.

So it's not done? And the idea (closing without confirmation) is good.

It is hardly a priority when only two people want a button in Save Changes to show history.

But you can always send us a Git Pull Request when you have coded it for us.

I have in mind to close immediately without message:

Why is it necessary, if I always choose "No"?

Well, if you can't close the program without confirmation, can you at least make for "Save project" the default "No" instead of "Yes" (so you can press Enter)?
