XCF is GIMP's "native" format. This will preserve all information about an image, including the layers.

Just like the PSD format from Adobe Photoshop, which some of you might be more familiar with.

Is XCF compatible with other programs like Paint Shop?

I am not sure if XCF is compatible with other applications, but I guess there must be some plugins available for each software. From what I see on Wikipedia, GIMP has import/export support for file formats of several applications such as Autodesk flic animations, Corel Paint Shop Pro images, Adobe Photoshop documents, and other.
