Yeah but you gotta give me a moment to be a smartass ;)

v3.0 has a soft date of December. I will cut features to make that date. Right now it's converging quite well towards a first milestone, and then after that I plan on adding a very small handful of features, releasing 3.0, then shoveling the remaining features in to v3.x releases.

Right now the guaranteed features are MDI and the improved Colors window that I described in another thread. There are also lots of little things that I can't even remember without pulling up the list of resolved bugs and work items.

The other feature I am planning on, with the highest priority, is a gradient tool.

And remember, any features not in 3.0 aren't cut. They're just shoveled into the bucket for the next release.

Yeah I read that on the Main site, will that be like Photoshop? with adjustable patterns? or just a line pulling and blending the foreground and background colors?

Either way, good job....I really wish there was an airbrush, I hear gimp has one, but I don't wanna be a traitor.

For the gradient I plan on making it more "wysiwyg" than Photoshop. In PS you have to draw a line and then let go of the mouse button before it renders anything. I find that to be a nuisance, and am going to implement it so that it draws the gradient in real-time as you're moving the mouse.

COOL! That would beat GIMP and PS =)

I want that.

I Have a single core 3.7 ghz...I am getting a new video card soon.

Haha, the video cards at school are so bad, I laugh at them everytime I log on. They wont let me bring my laptop.

Ok, I have made my choice, hence why I am editing this, I am going to stay with paint.net

Is there any way I can learn the code to somehow make an airbrush plugin?

I really like airbrushing.

Haha, Sorry, by the way, I just downloaded 2.72, and wow this is really cool.

Gotta select with lasso around obtuse objects though hehe, but I am used to doing that, cutting a lot of images out, then blurring the edges about 1 Px, this might be better than gaussian blurring it.

And yes, Thanks Rick for this great program.

Everyone has a right to that every once in a while. :)

While I'm really looking forward to MDI and whatever else you add, one feature I hope doesn't change is the Auto Level. Most of the time it works great when I need it, better than Paint Shop Pro X version of the same tool.

Just out of interest, what are the features that have been cut from PDN3.0 ?

Well, I guess it's really less of a question of "what has been cut from 3.0?", and more a matter of what features have been prioritized to be included in 3.0 in order to release it, say, this year.

For example, to say that scripting support was cut from 3.0 isn't really correct. It's just a feature we're tracking in our bug database so that we don't forget about it -- it's not like I was planning on including it in 3.0.

I don't believe we're changing Auto Levels.
