Microsoft is gradually moving towards making the simplest free graphics editor Paint a useful tool for creativity. The company brought one of Photoshop’s core features into Paint: layers, but it didn’t stop there.
The updated Microsoft Paint is available in Windows Insider test builds under the number 11.2308.18.0 in the Canary or Dev channels. The main innovations in it are support for layers and transparency.
In the new version of Paint, users can use the basic functions needed to work with layers – adding new layers, moving and reordering, merging, duplicating, and so on.
Another key part of this update is support for transparency, including the ability to open and save PNG files with a transparent background. Previously, Paint began testing the background removal function, which is now perfectly complemented by the newly added support for transparency.
Xiaomi will no longer develop MIUI for Redmi Note 11T Pro, Redmi Note 11T Pro+, Xiaomi 11, Xiaomi 11 Pro and Redmi K40S
Xiaomi announced changes in the work schedule on new versions of MIUI firmware for quite a large number of its smartphones.
Work on new beta versions of MIUI for Xiaomi 11, Xiaomi 11 Pro, Xiaomi 11 Ultra, Redmi K40S, Redmi Note 11T Pro and Redmi Note 11T Pro+ has completely stopped since September 22. This does not mean that the firmware of user smartphones will not be updated, but new functions will no longer be introduced into them. In about a year, software support for these models will end.
Also from today, Xiaomi has stopped working on beta versions of MIUI for the latest Xiaomi 13 Ultra, Xiaomi 13 Pro, Xiaomi 13, Xiaomi MIX Fold 3, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2, Redmi K60 Pro and Redmi K60, but this is a temporary phenomenon: work will resume after transferring current beta versions to Android 14.
3 billion views per day, like all newspaper articles in the world. Elon Musk talks about the success of long posts on X (Twitter)
Billionaire Elon Musk said long-form posts on Platform X (Twitter) now have 3 billion views per day. In the next message, the richest man in the world said that this number corresponds to the number of views of all newspaper articles on Earth.
Twitter Blue subscribers already have the ability to post messages of 10,000 characters, far exceeding the 280 character limit for non-Blue subscribers.
According to an old tweet from Musk, with this feature users can publish “very long, complex articles” and even “publish a book if they want.”
This move could help deter other writers who want more exposure for articles that would otherwise be posted on their blogs or perhaps on competing X sites.
Elon Musk said this week that social network X/Twitter is “moving to a low monthly fee” to combat “huge armies of bots.”
Musk bought the platform for $44 billion last October and has made several changes since then.
Telegram launched “Stories” for channels, as well as many other improvements
The team of the popular Telegram messenger announced the launch of a major update for users. One of the main innovations was support for “Stories” for channels. However, not all channels will be able to publish “Stories”.
In order for a channel to receive the right to publish “Stories,” it is required to collect a certain number of votes from readers. Only users of a paid Telegram Premium subscription can vote. Moreover, the Telegram Premium subscription provides one vote, which the user can give to one channel. Users can transfer their voice to another channel once a day.
The more votes a channel has, the higher its level, and each new level allows you to publish 1 additional story per day for all subscribers. The voting system is called “Boosts”.
Channels can collect votes using special links like t.me/durov?boost. You can find a link to vote for your channel and see how many votes are left until the next level on the channel page > “More” > “Statistics” > “Votes”.
Other new additions include reaction stickers that users and channels can add to their stories, the ability to upload audio files for stories (you can add music or voice accompaniment), an updated interface for self-destructing media files and a one-time view feature, new account login notifications, and so on.
