.net 3.0

Recommended Posts

So far, Rick has made about 25% transfer to the .NET framework. Every few updates, there's a little bit that may require .NET 3.0, such as a planned use of Microsoft's new file type, HD (the file extension is .hdp I think). You can get the HD plugin Beta here. I think Rick will also use 3.0/3.5 for extended file types (like 8-bit PNGs and 32-bit BMPs).

Rick's biggest hangup about moving to the .NET 3.0 framework is that the download for .NET 3.0 is HUGE - somewhere on the order of ten times the size of Paint.NET itself. He's discussed this a few times - he'll make it a requirement if he feels like the benefit will make up for the drawback.

Well, it's huge if you haven't got .NET 2.0. It isn't as large. It's still pretty big though.

Point granted. But Rick's biggest concern over the entire life of Paint.NET has always been new users - whom he can't count on having the .NET framework.

EDIT: And who would also have the biggest potential problem with such a large download.
