paint.net 4.0.8 is now available!


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately there was a nasty crashing bug that snuck into the Line/Curve tool in the 4.0.7 release earlier today. So, here’s a 4.0.8 update with the fix.

As usual, you can download the update directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now.

 

Here’s the official, and very brief, changelog for 4.0.8:

  • Fixed: The Line/Curve tool was crashing when drawing vertical lines of particular lengths.

As for 4.0.7, it even has its own forum post and blog post, but here is its changelog for convenience:

  • Changed: .NET Framework 4.6 is now required, and will be installed if necessary
  • New: Swedish translation
  • Fixed: Title bar now uses the Windows 10 accent color
  • Fixed: Floating windows were not remembering their locations on some non-English systems
  • Improved: Performance of "committing" (finishing) is now up to 10x faster, which greatly improves responsivness for quick drawing operations
  • Improved Shapes tool quality when drawn without antialiasing, with line styles, and at 1 pixel brush width
  • Improved Shapes tool rendering performance on CPUs with many cores (8+)
  • Improved: Installing a "complex" custom Shape no longer causes very long hangs at app startup
  • Improved: Image->Resize is now much faster
  • Fixed: Image->Resize would sometimes cause the main window to flicker or lose focus
  • Fixed: Image->Resize would sometimes do nothing instead of resizing the image to a very large size
  • Fixed: Labels on the vertical ruler were misleading because they were on the wrong side of the tick mark
  • Improved the ruler’s performance
  • Fixed: Edit->Copy now works if the data copied to the clipboard is larger than 2GB
  • Fixed: Page Up, Page Down, Home, and End keys now work in the main canvas area
  • Fixed: Paint.NET will no longer incorrectly block Windows from restarting
  • Fixed: Rotate/Zoom no longer crashes on very large images
  • Improved: Reduced CPU/GPU and battery use when the app is not in the foreground
  • Improved: Reduced CPU and battery use of the UI for the Move and Shapes tools
  • Added: Custom Shapes XAML now supports cardinal splines via PolyCurveSegment (a new PathSegment type)
  • Improved: Various performance improvements
  • Fixed: Several rare or uncommon crashes

Enjoy!

Thanks Rick for the update. 

 

You are awesome. 

 

Please, add few more blending modes, especially color blending mode. Color can be used for many things. It works better than recolor tool. While one blending mode (XOR) doesn't have much uses. I think adding blending mode will not be as difficult as new features. 

 

Thanks.

Thanks a lot for this update!

 

I had a question... I remember that in one of the former versions (can't remember which one), I could prepare some text effects with powerpoint for e.g. (wordart) and copy/paste on Paint.net without issue. When I do it now, there is a white backgroung on the wordart object instead of the transparent one I had on Powerpoint.

I hope I was clear enough, thanks in advance,
I wish you a great New Year's Eve

Hello Bondenson, some time ago another member asked for the same issue. I do not know if it is paint.net but it is not just Powerpoint but the other Office products as well. Anyway, I came up with a work around.

hamwizard, That's been requested a bazillion times already. It's on the short list.


The line tool is not working. I restarted PDN several times, but nothing works.

 

For those who haven't seen it, a workaround is here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/106728-line-tool-is-not-working/
