Paint.NET v2.5 Final Release now available

Recommended Posts

Two ways to get it:

1. Via the built-in auto-updater. Go to File -> Updates -> Check Now. Note that if you are using v2.5 Beta 5, a bug in the updater will prevent it from offering you the update, so you'll have to get it manually from our website. Beta 5 expires on Tuesday, so I don't see this as being a very big problem :) RC1 and RC2 will work just fine.

2. Download it from our website: http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net . Links for the installer (with and w/o .NET) are on the front page, and the source code is on the Download page.

This release is a huge improvement over v2.1b and is a highly recommended upgrade:

* Much faster performance and lower memory usage

* Full flexibility for scaling, rotating, and moving selections and selected pixels

* Ability to subtract from and add to selections

* Internationalization (I18N) support

* Officially available in German

* New Line / Curve tool lets you draw spline and Bézier curves

* Ability to work in measurements of inches and centimeters

* 3D Rotate / Zoom effect lets you rotate, tilt, and tile images at various perspectives

* Radial Blur and Add Noise effects

* Sepia adjustment

* Improved Text Tool, including higher quality font rendering

* GIF transparency support

* TGA file format support

* Greater extensibility with a brand new File Format API

* Simpler, faster setup wizard

* Update manager simplifies getting the latest version

* Cleaner user interface with none of the annoying flickering of past releases

* Many other changes, improvements, and fixes

This release does NOT expire. The expiration, or "time bomb", is only for our alpha, beta, and release candidate builds.

I have been trying to download Paint.net 2.5 with no luck. When I click on any of the download links, it tries to redirect me to a page and I get the message that it can't find the URL.

Same behavior on both the download and the mirror links.
