My favourite image editing software, Paint.NET, just got upgraded to version 3.2. There are quite a few changes, and the most striking ones for me are the reorganisation of the “Effect” menu and the addition of Julia and Mandelbrot fractals.
Now, all the special effects are categorised into the following
The two fractal generation effects are in Render.
I also noticed that during the update installation, there was special mention that Paint.NET is a free software, and is supported through donations via the main web site. Maybe Rick found his software packaged with another commercial software and sold for profit.
