    From Paint.NET - Roadmap and Change Log more details of the enhancements and bug fixes:

    Paint.NET v3.30 Released: April 10th, 2008
    This release adds an Italian translation, a new "Fragment Blur" effect, and the ability to save PNG images at 8- and 24-bit color depths. For developers, the IndirectUI system has some new controls, some new constraint rules, and can now be used for file type plugins.

    New: Italian translation.
    New: Ability to save PNG's at 8- and 24-bit color depths.
    New: Ability to save BMP's at 8-bit color depth.
    New: "Auto-detect" bit-depth option for PNG, BMP, and TGA file types. It will analyze the image and determine the lowest bit-depth that can still save the image without quality loss.
    New: "Fragment" blur effect, by Ed Harvey
    New: The "Polar Inversion" distortion effect has been enhanced to allow changing the rendering offset, and the behavior for "edge" pixels (clamp, reflect, or wrap).
    New: For developers, added a Color Wheel control to IndirectUI for use in effect plugins.
    New: For developers, added ability to customize certain properties of the effect configuration dialog via IndirectUI.
    New: For developers, IndirectUI can now be used to write configuration UI for file types.
    New: For developers, IndirectUI has a new radio button control type for enumerations, and some new property constraint rules.
    Changed: Most effects and adjustments, including plugins that use IndirectUI, have been visually refreshed. The new look is cleaner and more compact. These changes are shown in more detail at
    Fixed: Various UI issues with the Levels adjustment.
    Fixed: When pasting text into the Text tool with Ctrl+V, it would hide the nub for moving the text.
    Fixed: If the startup tool was set to the Zoom or Pan (Hand) tool, then the toolbar would render incorrectly.
    Fixed: Thumbnails for PDN images now include transparency, which improves their appearance in Windows Vista.
    Fixed: In some cases, an exponential property slider would get "stuck" at some values when using up/down keyboard keys. This mostly affects some effect plugins.
    Fixed: When using keyboard navigation, sometimes the File menu would scroll its items out of view.
    Fixed: Some crashes that were tracked down to out-of-bounds coordinate values in certain effects.
    Fixed: The installer would fail if Paint.NET had never been installed before, and was being installed to any non-default directory. This bug only affected version 3.22.

    Anyone know if this application can be made to run from a USB drive? I've got a locked-down computer at work and would much prefer to use this than MS Paint!
