Paint.NET 3.0 alpha 2

Posted on Thursday, October 26 2006 @ 00:45:26 CEST by LSDsmurf

This is the second public test release for v3.0. To install this from v2.72, make sure that you enable File -> Updates -> Also check for pre-release (beta) versions.

The preferred way to get this is by using the built-in updater. From within Paint.NET 3.0 Alpha 1, got to the Help menu and then click "Check for Updates". Or if that doesn't work, download it straight from here

Since version 3.0 Alpha 1, the following changes (and more) have been made:
  • New: Gradient Tool supports linear, radial, diamond, and conical gradient modes.
  • New: Merge Layer Down command in Layers menu and Layers window
  • Changed: A version of the Unsaved Changes dialog is now also shown when closing just 1 unsaved image, instead of the old fashioned Yes/No/Cancel MessageBox
  • Changed: Alpha Blending and Anti-aliasing buttons are now split-buttons, with different icon and some descriptive text
  • Changed: Shortcut key to open the MDI overflow list is now Ctrl+Q, instead of Ctrl+Space
  • If an important installation file is missing, Paint.NET will try to repair the installation instead of crashing
  • 256x256 icon format is now compressed, dropping EXE size by 150K
  • Fixed: a bunch of crashes that users were reporting
  • Fixed: "Load from toolbar" in Choose Defaults dialog did not pick up the active tool
