The plugin immediately crashes on start.

Technically, you had to move your mouse over the left-hand ListBox to trigger the crash. :P

 

Oh wow, that was silly of me. I was using an index in the line just before its bounds check. :lol:  Fixed.

Version 1.2.1.2 posted.

Every time I click to use the plug in browser, I'm hit with "A newer Plugin Index available. Download?" I click yes, and nothing happens.  The version I'm using is 1.2.1.0 on windows 10 64bit. Is there a newer version?

Yes. Download the new version (1.2.1.2) on the first page.

I don't see the new version. I see the previous version. 

 

Where do you see the previous version?

Get a virus detected from Defender - just letting you know. (zip installer) 

 

That's unfortunate. But since there's nothing I can do about it, I don't really care.

People can use the non-installer if they trust Defender more than me. I won't hurt my feelings. :)

 

Having said that, Defender is not reporting anything here on my end. As of right now, the definition version in Defender is 1.271.665.0.  Please ensure you are up-to-date.

 

VirusTotal also reports it's completely clean.

Downloading plugin index still doesn't work. Fresh install of latest paint.net, no other plugins. It prompted for download, I clicked yes and nothing happened. No errors, no new plugins in the list aside from built in ones.

Where is the plugin data saved? How can I trigger re download?

I suspect the reason could be because I have Paint.NET installed in program files, which needs admin access for write. If plugin is trying to save index in the effects folder it won't work unless Paint.NET is started with admin rights.

 

Edit: also are older versions available somewhere? Is source open?

Good. That means it's working correctly.

You should go back to the first page, and re-read what it says.

Sorry, we will not be making older versions available. Nor is it open source.

I see. I guess my expectations were mismatched based on experience with plugin browsers in any other software. It's a shame that this one has such a limited functionality.

Would be great to be able to install plugins directly from the browser.

It's free. Use it or don't. If you're going to drop acidic comments like "such a limited functionality" into the conversation I suspect you're better just uninstalling it.

 

You're completely free to write your own Plugin Browser if you like.

I appreciate the effort you and others have put into it and I didn't mean my comments to be acidic, I apologize if they came out wrong.

But it does lack one of the main features of plugin browsers when compared to other software. Please treat my previous post as a humble request for a feature.
