Paint.NET 4.0 available for download

Paint.NET is an image and photo manipulation application. Every feature and user interface element was designed to be immediately intuitive and quickly learnable without assistance. In order to handle multiple images easily, Paint.NET uses a tabbed document interface. The tabs display a live thumbnail of the image instead of a text description. This makes navigation very simple and fast.

Usually only found on expensive or complicated professional software, layers form the basis for a rich image composition experience. You may think of them as a stack of transparency slides that, when viewed together at the same time, form one image.

Many special effects are included for enhancing and perfecting your images. Everything from blurring, sharpening, red-eye removal, distortion, noise, and embossing are included. Also included is our unique 3D Rotate/Zoom effect that makes it very easy to add perspective and tilting.

Adjustments are also included which help you tweak an image's brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, curves, and levels. You can also convert an image to black and white, or sepia-toned.

I've been ignoring the 4.0 betas as I've always thought the previous 3.5.x was more than good enough to bother with betas. Where's the bullet-point list enumerating the *new* stuff? No need to re-iterate what was already in the previous versions...

The release notes link tells you what's new in 4.0 over 3.5.11, probably wasn't posted here as it's pretty big.

That's a pretty long list indeed. I'm underwhelmed though--I see nothing I feel is particularly groundbreaking.

This not a criticism--it's a testament to how good Paint.NET already is. I honestly don't know what else they could add to it that would make it much better. But then, I'm not a Photoshop user and Paint.NET has always been more than I need.

the new multi-threading is pretty big.
