Paint.Net 3.0 RTM

Rick Brewster's blog - Paint.NET 3.0 -- Final Release now available!

"It's done! Thanks to everyone who's given feedback and submitted bugs and suggestions, they have really helped improved the quality and stability of the program.



Here's what's new since version 2.72:

  • Simple and intuitive tab-based multi-document user interface
  • Now available in 8 languages: English, Chinese (Simplified), French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish
  • Interactive Gradient Tool that makes it very easy to draw and then fine-tune placement and coloring of a gradient.
  • User-definable color palette (as opposed to just the color wheel)
  • New effects: Clouds, Median, Unfocus, Outline, and an improved Sharpen
  • More intuitive and more powerful toolbar
  • Generally improved and cleaner user interface 
  • History files are now compressed to save disk space, reduce disk activity, and improve performance. 
  • "Merge Down" layer command

Very Cool.

Paint.Net is my favorite graphic package... The fact it's written in .Net (with source code available) is also a huge draw for me.
