For the past couple of days I’ve been involved in a ‘shock and awe‘ campaign on the bugs that have been plaguing some users of Painting With Light.  A new version (1.4.890) is now available for Windows and OSX from

Do please report any further problems you encounter.  If you don’t tell me, I won’t know!

In addition, I’ve also been aware for a while that some of our international friends haven’t been able to purchase licences via PayPal.  Today I’ve added an additional credit/debit card payment service that will allow everyone to get a licence.

In order to support this new payment option, I’ve had to move the shop from this site to the domain.  Orders made before today on this site can still be accessed from the My Account link in the menu.
