Twenty inches of rain couldn't stop the release of Pinta 0.3.
This is a great release, as it brings us pretty close to feature parity with Paint.NET.
I think the most important new feature is live preview, especially as this release adds 25 new effects to play with. It also adds 3 new tools (gradient, text, magic wand select) and has several visual improvements to make image editing / painting better.
I've posted packages/installers for SUSE/Mac/Windows/Zip, and the excellent Debian guys should have the Ubuntu PPA updated shortly.
Check out the full release notes for Pinta 0.3!
Thanks to everyone who made this release possible!
