Recommended Posts

I'm putting out this beta build in the hopes that is squashes the crashes that I'm getting some reports of. I'm planning to put some more stuff into 4.1.5, and am planning to release it during the last week of November.

 

Direct download link: https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/preview/paint.net.4.105.6895.32684.install.zip

 

Here's what's fixed/changed since 4.1.4:

 

  • Fixed: Shortcut keys for the Adjustments menu weren't working until after you opened the menu for the first time
  • Fixed: Canvas checkerboard, used to indicate transparent regions of the image, now scales with DPI
  • Fixed some of the more rare cases of the SEHException/AccessViolationException crash due to Direct2D thread safety bug

Good news, I received a reply back via e-mail from someone who was experiencing the EndDraw crashing (the 3rd bullet in the change log) and they said they're no longer experiencing any crashing. Woot 😄 Hopefully that means the nightmare is behind us ...

I just download the 4.1.5 beta and notice that the canvas, when using the Smudge Tool is no longer transparent.

Is this, perhaps, what you are referring to here?  

 

Fixed: Canvas checkerboard, used to indicate transparent regions of the image, now scales with DPI.

 

If so, is there a way to make it transparent again?

 

Many thanks for the newer and newer versions 👍

@Rick Brewster This has happened 2 of 3 times.


While using Magic wand the PC has frozen and required a reboot. The images were fairly large (for me) 3000 X 2700
The PC froze and no buttons responded. Powered off and rebooted. Then when restarting Paint.Net, a couple plugins failed to load. Then when restarting Paint.Net they loaded with no problems. This happened the first time. I remember Mandala was one of the plugins that failed to load but I never used it.

 

The second time the PC froze - it did come back after about 15 seconds.

 

The third time a reboot was again required by powering off and these plugins failed when Paint.Net started.  Error report included.
Only GraphPaper was used during the session.

When restarting Paint.Net the plugins again loaded without errors. 
Removing the Beta now to see if the error persists with the old version (I think not).
Posted just in case someone else has experienced this.

Changed doc dimensions / changed plugin to magic wand

I seem to recall this has been mentioned before, but in case not, the transparency in the color wheel does not go transparent when at zero.

 

First and second colors are turned to zero in this example:

I can't explain the Magic Wand issue you saw. Usually if an app causes a hang like that it's due to high memory usage which then can cause virtual memory to spill over to swap, which is stored on the hard drive. Not having an SSD will kill performance in a situation like that. You can roughly tell this is happening if the hard drive activity light is blinking a ton (if you have a hard drive light).

 

As for the plugins, it's possible that the Option Based Library is not thread safe, and is now causing errors because 4.1.4 now initializes effects in parallel on background threads (at startup, I mean). You may continue to see non-deterministic errors here until the library is fixed and the plugins are updated. I may also be able to put something in to prevent this (I already have an idea of what could be done), but fixing it in the Option Based Library is definitely preferred.
