18 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Paint.NET (Alpha) 3.50.3424.34110 Alpha

Something some of you guys might find useful.

Latest Changes -
Now requires (and uses!) .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
- Significant improvements to the installer. Prerequisites are now handled in a much more user-friendly fashion (it's no longer "go to the Microsoft website and decipher geek talk and download stuff")
- The auto-updater can now download in the background, and then install the update after you've exited Paint.NET. Compare this to v3.36 and earlier that jump in your face and require the download and installation to happen right now, and block you from us
- New effect: Blurs -> Surface Blur, by Ed Harvey
- New effect: Distort -> Dents, by Ed Harvey
- New effect: Distort -> Crystalize, by Ed Harvey

- The selection outline is no longer animated, which substantially reduces CPU usage. It also uses XOR blending

- Fixed a crash with the "Units" selector in the toolbar area
- Added a "Utilities" menu, and moved the following menu items there: Check for Updates, Language chooser, and View Plugin Load Errors. For the alpha release, there are also menu items for "Force Crash" and "Perform Full GC" (you'll know what that means i
- Installer now has a "Start Paint.NET" checkbox at the end. (On Vista and Win7 with UAC enabled, it will correctly start Paint.NET at non-elevated privilege.)
- Renamed "Grid" to "Pixel Grid", to more accurately describe its functionality
- The DirectDraw Surface (.DDS) file type now allows you to select the resampling algorithm for auto-generated mip-maps
- Effect plugins now have access to a "Services" property which allows them to properly access certain internal Paint.NET functionality
- Fixed some very small memory leaks when opening many images
- Russian translation
- A processor that supports SSE is now required (almost all CPU's purchased this decade satisfy this)

I just found this and decided to post it. FireFox's 3.7 Alpha 5 lets you throw your tabs on the top of the browser window, right below the title bar, like Chrome. I've been wanting Mozilla to do that for a while now. xD
