Ability to save PNG's at 8- and 24-bit color depths
I assume it has always been able to do 24-bit PNG images. Did it only just now get the ability to save an 8-bit PNG?

I don't think so. I seem to recall always being able to save as either 8-bit or 24-bit PNG. But I think 100% of the time I choose 24-bit PNG so I'm not sure.

This just shows what people can do with the .NET framework if they want to. At this rate it could give other big named photo and editing apps a run for their money.

Hehe, I would say that it shows what people can do despite the immature .NET framework. Still, Pant.net has troubles with big images...but then again so do many other apps.
