Roadmap of future releases?


Recommended Posts

Please don't flame or get angry, just asking for help finding some sort of future release roadmap. I like 3.0, but like a lot of others here, we are all looking for some features still missing. Before I start donating to the cause, I'd like to see where it's heading and what the milestones are expected to be. If there's a web page with that posted already, please point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Sorry, there is no written down roadmap for future releases. There will be more releases though, of course.

...we are all looking for some features still missing...

Trust me, even it was at feature-for-feature parity with Photoshop, people would still say this :)

I don't doubt that (last comment) at all. However, some of the features I need are fairly basic: air brush tool, text font effects, additional filters and effects, editable vertices on polygons and polygonal clips, prelimary object placement and vertex control, etc. I'm not going to sit here and tell you to be like PS. CS2 or CS3 or Gimp, they lack things also, or if they have them, the steps to get a desired result are too complex or cumbersome. I'm not saying anything new obviously. Just hoping to see/hear something to indicate it may incorporate some of these features and roughly "when" (months, years, ever). I think it's fantastic as-is, but I'm trying to narrow down my graphics toolset and I'd love to see Paint.NET take over some of the features I have to get from other products.

skatterbrain, What you're asking for is definitely not "fairly basic" from my side of the fence (that is, as the developer). Paint.NET has reached a point in its development where it needs a significant overhault to enable any of the features you are asking for. Because I'm not working on Paint.NET full time, I simply can't give an estimate for when any of these features will be available. It could easily be years and years, and my roadmap doesn't plan out that far ahead.

Sorry, I didn't intend to trivialize your efforts. I develop software in a different area, so I can appreciate the work and planning and hours that go into something like this. I don't mean to belittle it or anything like that. It's simply amazing. I wouldn't be participating in this forum if I didn't think Paint.NET was worth it. I agree with LionHearted: I'd offer more help if my skills fell into anything remotely close to what might help. I do scripting and web development so I don't think that would be of much use. I do graphics as sort of a hobby for web sites outside of my paying job. In any case, I will keep up on updates and follow along as it progresses. Thanks!
