The jpeg quality slider in Lightroom 10 is greyed out so jpegs can only be exported at 80%.  I need the highest quality export for photography competitions.

Is this a new "feature" or is there a new option that needs to be set in the new version?

Sounds like you have Limit file size to checked, which will grey out the quality slider,  because Lightroom then has to calculate the quality setting for the chosen file size.

Thanks Per - you are correct.  Either that's new, or else I never noticed it reducing the quality which explains why I had trouble saving jpegs at best quality! 🙂

Our competition standards have a limit of 5MB per image, so I always had that set.
