Oke een aantal punten welke hier worden genoemd worden ook op het Paint.NET forum besproken voor het meeste geldt dat er nu geen tijd voor is maar dat dat niet wil zeggen dat het niet gaat gebeuren.
Magnetic Lasso -- This is requested a lot. Tom wants to do this but we have no ETA.
Polygonal lasso / selection tool -- No ETA.
Auto-Save -- For example, Paint.NET will save every 5 minutes (for example) to better prevent data loss. Technical feasibility is low for the current design of Paint.NET (at least not without really annoying the user), but a future version should enable it. No ETA. See this thread: http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=3679
Arrow tool -- Confirmed for a 3.0x update. This will work by adding some parameters to the Line/Curve tool. (yes this means you can draw a curvey arrow-line)
"Ribbon" interface like Office 2007 -- I've evaluated this type of interface and I do not believe it will bring benefit to the Paint.NET UI. Everyone who has asked for this seems to think that the ribbon UI is some easy feature that automatically boosts the utility of the application and that it is appropriate for everything from MS Word, to Windows Vista, to World of Warcraft. It is not (well, it is for MS Word). Please read this for more information: http://www.interact-sw.co...006/05/26/ribboncargocult
Scrolling past the edge of the canvas when zoomed in -- Right now when you zoom in on the image, you can only scroll to the edge of the image. It can be inconvenient because then you have no space between the image and the scroll bars. Implementing this is dependent on some other "plumbing" work that should be done for the image canvas' rendering, and this will be taken into account when that work is being done. No ETA though.
Ability to organize/manage effects -- This one's interesting. Now that there are so many plugins available, people now need the ability to organize them, like into sub-menus or something. Will probably make it into a 3.x0 release (3.10? 3.20?)
Smudge Tool -- No ETA.
Better printing user interface -- No ETA.
RAW file format support -- I'm planning on having Paint.NET make use of Windows Imaging Component ("WIC"), which is a new system for allowing camera manufacturers to add RAW support to Windows that is accessible to any application that uses WIC. No ETA, but it will require installation of .NET Framework 3.0.
Movable toolbars -- Not gonna happen. In my opinion, it is way way way more trouble than it is worth. (Please do not confuse "toolbar" with the "floating tool windows": Tools, History, Layers, Colors. Those are already movable, dockable, and some are also sizable.)
Ability to customize the amount of transparency in the floating tool windows -- Not gonna happen.
Ability to re-edit text, or "text layers", or some variation thereof -- This an enormous work item due to other plumbing that must be in place to enable it. This falls into the "yes I agree, and hopefully we'll have it someday." No ETA.
Adjustment layers -- I want this too. I have some cool ideas in this space, but no ETA.
CMYK support, or 16-bits per pixel support -- Not gonna happen. If you really need good software for working with images for printing, or need to work at a professional level, then I must honestly point you towards Adobe Photoshop.
Layer "folders", or the ability to organize layers in a hierarchy -- I want this too, and it depends on some major plumbing work being done. This would be a Paint.NET v4.0 level of feature. No ETA.
* ETA stands for Estimated Time of Arrival. By saying "No ETA" I'm basically stating that we currently have no plan for when this feature will be implemented. This doesn't mean "not gonna happen" but it also is not a promise that it will happen. Please remember that Paint.NET is developed in my spare time, and as such scheduling and planning are not scientific.
