Does PDN support any drawing tablets?

I'm getting a drawing tablet soon and I want to know if it supports any tablet no matter what company or model or if there's certain tablets I should get that are only supported on PDN.

 

Furthermore, how do drawing tablets work on PDN? Does it act as a mouse or will I need a mouse to select tools and other features? If I press the pen against the tablet will it automatically start drawing on the canvas or is that a limitation?

In order to properly support a drawing tablet, you'll need to upgrade to Paint.NET v5.0+ and the drawing tablet needs to support "Windows Ink".

v.5??? I didn't know this was a thing, wow.

 

Is v5.0 actually stable, though? Or will there be a noticeable amount of instability and bugs? And will I have to move all of my plugins over?

Also slight problem, I tried to click the link for the x64 installer and when it opened in a new tab it says "not found."

I find it very stable.

 

To update, just run Paint.NET and do this:

Then, be sure to install my updated plugin pack:

@BoltBait linked to the post for the first "alpha" build for 5.0, which contains a detailed description of all the new features in 5.0. Only the latest build (currently 5.0 beta build 8382) will have valid download links.
