paint.net 4.2.11 beta build 7433


Recommended Posts

The alpha went quite well -- there were just a bug that popped up in the UI code for the updater that seems to be finally squashed for good now.

 

So, here's the beta! There are a few more fixes and improvements, most notably a right-click context menu has been added to the image/tab's thumbnail. You can also open up this menu by pressing Alt and - (minus).

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 4.2.11 alpha build 7420:

  • New: Added a right-click context menu to the image thumbnail/tab. It contains commands for Copy Path, Open Containing Folder, Save, Save As, and Close.
  • New: Slovenian (sl) translation
  • New: Added /forceUpdateCheck command-line argument. This is intended for troubleshooting scenarios to simplify acquiring the latest version, e.g. "just run paintdotnet:/forceUpdateCheck" instead of a list of buttons to click on.
  • New: Added /disableNtfsTx to disable the use of NTFS Transactions when saving images, which affords troubleshooting some scenarios that may be problematic.
  • New: The items in the File -> Open Recent menu now have a tooltip with the full file path for the image
  • Fixed: Error dialogs when opening images now consistently show the file path
  • Fixed a crash that would sometimes happen when running effects with very small selections
  • Updated WebPFileType plugin to version 1.3.4.0 (thanks @null54!)

 

Enjoy!

It would be useful if 'Open Containing Folder' selected the specific file in Explorer.

 

 

This is absolutely happening -- I've got working code for that now!

 

I actually just forgot to implement it. It was on the list. I had way too many windows and tabs open, and it just got lost in the scroll. Thanks for the reminder :)

Hello!

 

Is there a way to download directly update file zip or msi as it was sometime ago?

 

I want to test a new build, but in my network it seems that access to update site is blocked, so i need to install the update manually.

Yes, here's a direct download link for this build: https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/test/paint.net.4.211.7433.39692.install.zip

 

Are you using a proxy on your network? Those don't work well with the updater
