What's new in this version:

New:
- Effect -> Color -> Quantize, which applies palette reduction to 256 colors or less, along with dithering. This is the same algorithm used when saving images at 8-bit color depth or lower.
- Effects can now access the Document’s DPI via EffectEnvironmentParameters.DocumentResolution

Fixed:
- a crash in Move tools when the selection was 0-width and/or 0-height
- and improved palette generation when saving at 8-bit color depth or less
- Greatly optimized performance of palette generation and image quantization
- IndirectUI ColorWheel rendering
- a crash in the Text tool when using Ctrl+(Left,Right,Backspace,Delete)
- a crash when working with selections (OutOfMemoryException)
- drawing of the color palette in the Colors window when using some non-standard DPI scaling settings (e.g. 1.15x)
- a crash when using @Ed Harvey‘s Threshold plugin
- the return value from PdnRegion.GetBoundsInt() so it’s not anchored at (0,0) unless it should be
- premultiplied-to-straight color conversion on some code paths

Added:
- option to choose between Octree (default) and Median Cut algorithms for palette quantization when saving at 8-bit color depth or less
- tooltips w/ shortcut keys to the Tools dropdown in the toolbar

- Updated bundled AvifFileType plugin to v1.1.11.0, which includes performance optimizations and bug fixes
- Updated bundled DDSFileTypePlus plugin to v1.10.8.0, which uses an updated version of DirectXTex
- Changed: New layers are now filled with #00000000 instead of #00FFFFFF
