    Paint.NET 3.5.5 Released
    April 25th, 2010

    Whats New
    • Fixed the bug where saving as 8-bit PNG/GIF/BMP wasn't always working, usually with larger images.
    • Improved the performance of the Gaussian Blur effect by 30-40%.
    • Improved the performance of all the layer blending modes by 15-30%.
    • Improved the performance of zooming with the mouse wheel on dual-core Intel Atom systems.
    • Updated to support .NET 4.0 if no other version of .NET is installed.
    • Reduced download size from 4.8MB down to 3.5MB.
    • Fixed a small error in the Chinese translation.

    This update fixes a bug when saving 8-bit images, improves layer composition and Gaussian Blur performance, and is now updated to support the new .NET Framework 4.0 in some cases.
    Please note that the system requirements have been updated. For Windows XP, you must now have Service Pack 3 (SP3) installed; SP2 is no longer supported. For Windows Vista, you must now have Service Pack 1 installed.



    NOTE: You can either use the built-in updater, or go to the website and download it. There’s no need to uninstall the old version; that will be taken care of automatically.

    Download: Paint.NET v3.5.5

    Truly an unsung but really good photoshop alternative for Windows and its free. Its true x64 using x64 .Net. The performance with large images on multi core PCs with high RAM is truly fantastic.
