It's done and it's ready. Go get it from the main page, http://www.getpaint.net/ or via the built-in updater. If you are using v2.72, use "File->Updates->Check Now...". If you are using a pre-release version of 3.0, use "File->Help->Check for Updates..."

No changes from the Release Candidate 1, other than a few typos/changes in the translations. And there was 1 bugfix in the Layers window.

I sent an E-Mail to.. a... uhh.. high person.

Short Version:

...I was always hoping for a mentioning of the free program called Paint.net.

In short, Paint.net is a free bitmap editor to rival Photoshop. It is run on the .NET framework from Microsoft, therefore it only runs on Microsoft Windows. It previously ran on Windows 2000, but due to the shrinking audience of win2k users, Paint.net users only run on Windows XP SP2 or higher.

Paint.net has a large number of advantages over Photoshop and GIMP. It much smaller at about 20MB after installation, therefore it runs faster. It has a very user friendly interface (Icons for everything, unlike Photoshop). It contains most of the great features of Photoshop (blurs, distorts, and other effects like clouds and oil painting)...

Just out of hopes of raising publicity.

Sorry to be...erm...annoying (It's the day of the week on which I don't care), but how's that Benchmarking Util. coming along? :D

Go get it!

Source code is now on the download page as well.

7 diggs and 2 comments? C'mon guys, you can do better than that...

Looks like a smooth release Rick, it works great - as expected.

I think everyone is out drinking beer. There's also at least 3 duplicate digg posts competing for clicks ... I'm sure one will eventually get front paged :)
