This update adds XMP metadata support, 3 new translations, some UI improvements, and several bug fixes.

 

I'd like to point out the addition of a right-click menu that's now available from the thumbnail strip at the top of the window:

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 4.2.10:

  • New: XMP metadata is now preserved for supported file types (PDN, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, JPEG XR, HEIC, AVIF, WEBP)
  • New: Belarusian (be) translation
  • New: Greek (el) translation
  • New: Slovenian (sl) translation
  • 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: The items in the File -> Open Recent menu now have a tooltip with the full file path for the image
  • Changed: The selection outline animation is now smoother (2x the framerate)
  • Fixed: Saving with the HEIC file type is no longer limited to a max Quality value of 90. This limitation was in place because of a crash due to heap corruption, which no longer happens.
  • Fixed: The NVIDIA sharpening setting will no longer cause trippy distortions in the canvas area
  • Fixed an issue with loading very small TGA images, first reported here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116100-tga-rle-truecolor-1x1-image-failed-to-load/. Thanks @null54 or the fix!
  • Fixed: Error dialogs when opening images now consistently show the file path
  • Fixed a PropertyNotFoundException error message when saving JPEG images with a particular ordering of metadata. This was due to a bug in Windows 7's WIC JPEG codec. First reported here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116079-jpg-cant-save-some-file/
  • Fixed clipped text rendering in the Curves adjustment dialog in some non-English translations.
  • Fixed a crash when running the app with a DPI scaling setting of 500%
  • Fixed a crash that would sometimes happen when running effects with very small selections
  • Fixed some IndirectUI controls not honoring their default values if also initialized in read only (disabled) mode. Thanks @BoltBait for the fix!
  • Fixed a memory leak in the effect system that was causing 1 orphaned thread per effect invocation
  • Changed: Removed the use of NTFS Transactions, which was causing trouble with OneDrive. Microsoft has also deprecated this technology.
  • New: Added /openCrashLogFolder command-line argument. This is intended for simplifying troubleshooting workflows.
  • 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 giving a longer list of buttons to click on.
  • Updated WebPFileType plugin to version 1.3.4.0, which adds XMP metadata support. Thanks @null54!
  • Updated DDSFileTypePlus plugin to version 1.10.3. This fixes an issue with saving in the A1R5G5B5, A4R4G4B4, and R5G6B5 formats, and adds support for reading files that use a 'BC7\0' FourCC. Thanks @null54!

 

Enjoy!

"Get it from Microsoft" is not translated into Belarusian in paint.net installer.

I have already published translated images here:

But these images were not included into installer.

@Ego Eram Reputo No, it's not. Here's a screenshot of paint.net installer in Russian. You can see this image is localized.

You can find these image files in "Paint.net->Resources". That folder contains folders with localized images for different resolutions. I assume these folders are used by installer. But there are no folders with images for several languages.

Yeah this is just something I missed. I can make sure it's in there for the next update. Thanks!

 

Microsoft may even have an official version of this, which I would use. There's usually not a need for translators to provide this image.

@Rick Brewster Yes, found this website where you can get Microsoft Store badges in different languages. I noticed those badges from the website have some differencies with current paint.net badges. Maybe it worth to update all current badges? Some examples:

Thanks Rick.

 

I can finally use BoltBait's new Shadow plugin without cursing myself 👍

 

Oh? Why's that?

 

Because of this...

My latest shadow plugin crashes previous versions of Paint.NET because of the bug and he runs the Store version.

And I still can't believe that you still can't change a selection once its made like every other similar product.

 

Are you referring to changing the selection size and/or location?

See this page in the Paint.NET online help file.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

This has been possible since 2005 ... 🤦‍♂️ But if you really just want to be grumpy, we won't miss you 🙄

If the crash happened more than a month ago on an older version, then why did you bother posting about the crash in the first place?

well, I wanted to point this out earlier, but i just forgot to do so. I hope i didn't break anything by talking about this here (it won't happen again i promise)
