It's done and it's ready. Go get it from the main page, 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..."


Here's what's new since v2.72:

    * Simple and intuitive tab-based multi-document user interface
    * Now available in 8 languages: English, Chinese (Simplified), French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish
    * Interactive Gradient Tool that makes it very easy to draw and then fine-tune placement and coloring of a gradient.
    * User-definable color palette (as opposed to just the color wheel)
    * New effects: Clouds, Median, Unfocus, Outline, and an improved Sharpen
    * More intuitive and more powerful toolbar
    * Generally improved and cleaner user interface
    * History files are now compressed to save disk space, reduce disk activity, and improve performance.
    * "Merge Down" layer command

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)...

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 :)
