Paint.NET v2.70 Beta 1 now available


Recommended Posts

Download Note: You must use the built-in updater in Paint.NET v2.64 in order to install this. To do this, first ensure that the menu item "File -> Updates -> Also check for Betas" is enabled. Second, click on the menu item "File -> Updates -> Check Now ...". It should offer you "v2.70 Beta 1," at which point you should click on the Install button to accept it.

Ok, like I mentioned before, here is v2.70. It is a beta, however :) Please refer to the above instructions in order to get it.

Changes:

* New effect: Glow

* New effect: Bulge

* New effect: Polar Inversion

* New effect: Tile Reflection

* New effect: Twist

* Updated system requirements

* Fixed nub selection for Line/Curve and Move tools where the cursor would sometimes affect the wrong nub when zoomed in

A note on the system requirements. Paint.NET now requires that if you are using Windows XP that you have SP2 installed. For Windows 2000 users, you must now have SP4 installed (previously SP3 was allowed). For Windows Server 2003 users, SP1 is now required.

The minimum memory requirements were also raised from 128 MB, to 256 MB. This falls in line with what I have seen as a more realistic system for using Paint.NET. We also now list 64-bit systems as requiring 384 MB RAM instead of 256 MB.

Updates are easy and free, there's really no reason to not have the latest version :) It's perfectly fine to wait for the non-Beta v2.70 though.

v3.0 is still many months away.
