Paint.NET updater

Wow - I just opened up Paint.NET, and there was an update to the software available.  Now I didn't open up Paint.NET to apply an update - I opened it to use the software.  Instead of nagging me the way FileZilla, Adobe, Firefox, and the Java updaters do, Paint.NET gave me a dialog with the option of applying the update once I close the application.  What that means is that I can go ahead an do what I was going to do with only a minor interruption to my train of thought, and then when I'm done Paint.NET applies the update behind the scenes.  Cool - I really like it when developers pay attention to the little details.
