paint.net 4.1.4 beta build 6879

Recommended Posts

This build fixes a nasty crash that has been happening randomly, but usually when closing an image or exiting the app. I've spent almost the entire week debugging only this ?

 

Your help to test this will be very much appreciated! This was an extremely thorny issue to debug and fix, and it's important to gain confidence that the fix is comprehensive. If you experience a crash, please post the crash log to this thread ASAP!

 

There's also a MASSIVE improvement to startup performance when effect plugins are installed -- especially if you have a lot of them. Try it out, you'll see ;)

 

Change log:

 

  • Improved: Massive startup performance improvement when lots of effect plugins are installed.
  • Fixed a crash that would happen when closing an image, exiting the app, or sometimes just at random. This was happening due to a bug in Direct2D where ID2D1EffectContext does not honor the multithreaded initialization flag from its ID2D1Factory, and was thus corrupting its own internal data structures.
  • Fixed: DirectX 9 GPUs can now utilize hardware acceleration again (in 4.1.3 they were forced to use software rendering)
  • Fixed: The Black & White and Invert Colors adjustments no longer display an OK/Cancel dialog

@Rick Brewster,  I've been testing this for about 2 hours, doing the exact same thing I was over the weekend.  NO CRASHES!

 

I am super-impressed with the loading time....it's almost instantaneous!  I have over 550 plugins installed.

 

I will report if anything happens....so far, so good.  :)

Tiny note, updater showed "4.1.3" as an update for this, exe being 4.1.4 and it took 30+ seconds on the 'removing previous version' step of updating.

Installed fine in the end, just something weird. Normally that step is like 1-2 seconds.

Something new happened.

It's not a big deal for me. I have been wrestling with Windows for a few days after getting hit by some malware or virus. Everything is fine now, but when I installed the new release, I got this warning from Windows;

I only post it for your info @Rick Brewster

I had no such warning before installing this Paint.Net 4.1.4 installation. And I never received this kind of warning before.

And yes your app has now been granted access to my firewall and I received no warning after installing a second time.

Hope you find it of interest.

You have "Controlled Folder Access" enabled for some reason. I think it was added in Windows 10 v1803 or v1709.

 

It's been mentioned before -- you'll want to disable it. Just click the Start menu and type "Controlled Folder Access" to find it.
