paint.net 4.2.8 is now available!

Recommended Posts

This small update fixes a few pressing bugs, particularly for touch and pen input.

 

If you’re using the Windows Store release, you should get the update automatically within the next 24 hours. You can also force an update check by following these instructions.

 

For the Classic release, you should be offered the update automatically within the next week or so. You can get the update sooner by going to ⚙ Settings → Updates → Check Now. You can also download and install it directly from the website.

 

Changes since 4.2.7:

  • Fixed: Pinch-to-zoom was not working when using a touch screen (regression in 4.2.6)
  • Fixed: Spacebar panning was not working when using a pen/stylus (regression in 4.2.6)
  • Fixed: EXIF metadata with non-ASCII characters is now preserved correctly
  • Fixed a crash that can happen when the Microsoft Store version of the app is closed for an update
  • Added /repair command-line argument, which will run PdnRepair.exe. This makes it easy to use Start -> Run -> paintdotnet:/repair so you don't have to go fishing for the installation directory.


Enjoy!

They are hardly countless, and each one makes the program better. I love the fact that PDN is being developed so visibly. It leaves you in no doubt that the developer is regularly improving PDN for all of us.

Paint Net is a fantastic tool but I dislike the countless maintenance releases the last months.

 

If you're tired of clicking on the update prompts, you can buy the app on the Microsoft Store and then updates will be completely transparent -- it happens automatically and in the background. https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9NBHCS1LX4R0

 

This is the way software works nowadays: continuous improvement, continuous release. It results in higher quality software, and reduces "big surprise" updates with lots of new, but not always completely working, functionality. It reduces the amount of time that people have to deal with bugs that do arise. Complaining about the frequency of updates for free software is a pretty silly attitude to have, "Hey there's a bug can you fix it" (so then I fix it immediately) ... "Hey why are you sending out so many updates?!" Pick a lane ...

@Rick Brewster
When are you going to add AI to Paint.NET with the ability to read minds and predict what I want to have created and  then produce it?
Maybe you can make it use my VR headset to scan my thoughts and visions and produce a Paint.NET graphic.
I need it this weekend!

Thanks! 🙂

Best feature request yet. (Although I wouldn't wish reading my mind on anybody.  It's dark in there ...)

 

Not exaggerating  but Paint.net has seen me through some pretty bad times, so I for one appreciate all the work you've put in and continue to
