    Nice find! [​IMG]
    This app has some seriously good potential. They already have most of the functionality the average user would need. It can only get better. Props to the students who are working on this - it's a really good project.
    And Microsoft's sponsoring an open-source effort! You don't see that happening everyday. [​IMG]

    Not a problem. I've actually started using it quite a bit since they added magic wand support. :)

    Don't need a new thread every time a new version is released.
    Threads merged

    Changelog:
    # Installation via Group Policy now works
    # New Bitmap images made via Explorer now open correctly as blank 800x600 images
    # Fixed the infamous paintbrush rendering bug
    # Lasso selection does not "close" the outline until the user releases the mouse button
    # Unchecking the current layer's visibility deselects it
    # Floating forms remember opened/closed state between sessions
    # Saving/loading of .PDN images is much faster, especially on dual/multiprocessor systems
    # Upgraded file format to accomodate very large images (prerequisite for later 64-bit support)
    # PaintDotNet.exe is now down to 544KB (version 2.0 was about 1100KB)
    # Many miscellaneous performance and stability fixes
