Paint.NET v3.5 Beta 1 - Download, released on September 20, 2009The first beta of Paint.NET v3.5 is now available! Changes since version 3.36: * Refreshed user interface with new icons and visual styling. On Windows 7 and Vista, it is enhanced for Aero and "glass". * Now uses and requires .NET 3.5 SP1, which has many built-in performance improvements. * New effect: Blurs -> Surface Blur, by Ed Harvey * New effect: Distort -> Dents, by Ed Harvey * New effect: Distort -> Crystalize, by Ed Harvey * Effect dialog responsiveness has been greatly improved. * Images open much faster, especially on single CPU systems. * Selection outline is no longer animated. Instead of "dancing ants", an antialiased and stippled "XOR" outline is drawn. * Startup performance on most systems will be better by about 20%. * Memory usage has been greatly reduced when more than one image is open. * The font system for the Text tool has been completely rewritten, and problems with missing fonts and crashes should be a thing of the past. * On Windows XP and Vista, the Text tool has improved text rendering quality (it uses GDI instead of GDI+). * On Windows 7, the Text tool will use DirectWrite (instead of GDI) which gives even better performance and quality.
