It’s been 2 weeks and I’ve been busy incorporating the feedback I’ve received so far on the first beta. Phew! Anyway, please note that this is a beta that expires in 60 days on May 11th. You can get this update by downloading it from the website, http://www.getpaint.net/ (no need to uninstall your current version, it will figure it all out for you), or via the built-in updater. For the latter, go to Help -> Check for Updates… and make sure you are set up to receive betas by clicking on the Options button and ensuring that "Also check for beta releases" is checked. Then close the dialogs and click on Help -> Check for Updates… again.
Changes since Beta 1:
- Changed: Most effects and adjustments, including plugins that use IndirectUI, have been visually refreshed. The new look is cleaner and more compact. These changes are shown in more detail at http://blog.getpaint.net/2008/03/10/cleaning-up-the-ui-for-paintnet-v330/
- Fixed: Thumbnails for PDN images now include transparency, which improves their appearance in Windows Vista.
- New: For developers, added a Color Wheel control to IndirectUI for use in effect plugins.
- New: For developers, added ability to customize certain properties of the effect configuration dialog via IndirectUI.
