I've been using Paint.NET for a while now, and I want to say that 3.0 is amazing even in its Alpha state. I use it extensively and have yet to have it crash on me, and I can't even think of any bugs I've run in to. With this release, I think I am just about out of ideas for what I'd like to see. Increased text capabilities (text along curves, bordered/styled, etc) is the only feature that I can personally think of that sometimes feels "missing" (and I use that word very lightly, as PDN is obviously full fledged program.) When I found Paint.NET, it was just what I've always wanted- a powerful, easy to use, and effective paint program that keeps the simplicity of MSPaint. Keep it up guys!
