Paint.NET v3.0 is now available!

Recommended Posts

:? Sorry what is that "digg" or "dugg" .... ? :lol: Couldn't all of you speak French like all in the world ? :lol::lol:

Digg.com is an 'invention' in web2.0 for sharing links (basically).

IMHO totally useless, except if you want to make some buzz out of something...

But is there any reason to make a buzz around a product as good as PdN?²

Regards,

Skro, downloading the new version...

²ndlr: yes, alas. People don't know Pdn yet, and they only download cracked copies of Pho[no TM plaese]op... How fool they are

Off topic: Ohhh... Vista shots.

Off Topic 2: Can't wait to upgrade to Vista.

On Topic: Yay. I have been waiting for this for a while now. Glad to see it is finally here. Of course, another great job.

I had problems to download PNet 3.0 from a mirror so i downloaded it from another one. But after it I downloaded it from the first mirror again.

Why these files have diferent size? :?:

PaintDotNet_3_0_BetaNews.exe 5˙471˙024 bytes

PaintDotNet_3_0_MajorGeeks.exe 5˙466˙384 bytes

PaintDotNet_3_0_SkyOrb.exe 5˙491˙032 bytes

Thanks a lot!

Because their banner image, which is shown during installation, affects the compressed file size. They are all still digitally signed by me, and can be verified using standard tools.

Once you hit yahoo french you get a ton of downloaders.

Believe me on this one. When I released PhishTank SiteChecker it hit there. Lost all my bandwidth thanks to them.

I digged.

*shrug* Paint.NET isn't the only thing I do. I think you're mis-correlating quantity and quality with respect to time though. Even if I had more time for Paint.NET, that doesn't necessarily mean you'd see a flood of features. This stuff till takes time to "bake" -- good designs can't necessarily be forced just because you suddenly have time to think about them, and stabilizing code is very dependent on quality testing which takes time, time, time. If I had done gradients or MDI two years ago then the design would have been lame simply because the good design in 3.0 took awhile for me to gradually figure out. If I had squeezed in 8 (to pick an arbitrary number) more features in to 3.0, then it would either have required another month to release or it would be not as stable right now. Even if someone decided to start paying me bucketloads of cash (or suitcase-fulls?), that just increases cash flow. It doesn't increase the amount of time!
