The development team behind Paint.NET has announced that Paint.NET version 3.5 has reached an important milestone in its development process: Paint.NET 3.5 has been rolled out as a final, stable software application. Version 3.5 comes with some UI changes, numerous stability tweaks, menu adjustments, enhanced Windows 7 Aero support and much more. We’ll take a look at the changes in Paint.NET 3.5 later. First a word from Rick Brewster, the main guy behind the Paint.NET application:

"Thanks to everyone who helped out with the extensive alpha and beta releases with all the bug reports, crash log submissions, and feedback. It has all been a huge help in creating the best Paint.NET release ever. As usual, there are two ways to get the new version.
1. Use the built-in updater from within Paint.NET
2. Download directly from the web.”
