paint.net 4.2.9 beta build 7333

Recommended Posts

This release has been going smoothly so far with only 1 or 2 issues that have needed fixing, so I'm hopeful that a final public release will be achievable very soon (this week?). The performance improvements should really save a lot of time for everyone who uses the app a lot. For some, it'll be strongly and immediately noticeable (large images, low-end systems). For others, it'll be small savings that add up and compound over time, but still very worthwhile.


This beta build fixes one rare crash and adds 2 new translations, Hebrew and Slovak.


To get this update, make sure you have "Also check for pre-release (beta) versions" enabled in Settings, and then click on the Check Now button. (Unfortunately alpha/beta releases are not currently available for the Microsoft Store version of the app).



Changes since last week's 4.2.9 alpha build:

  • Fixed a rare crash that could happen after performing various actions, due to transient history file locking by indexing or antivirus (this was a new crash for 4.2.9)
  • New translation: Hebrew (HE)
  • New translation: Slovak (SK)
  • Updated DDSFileTypePlus plugin to v1.9.9. This adds support for X8B8G8R8 and R8G8B8 formats, and fixes a visual glitch when previewing cube maps in some formats.
