paint.net 4.2.15 alpha build 7683


Recommended Posts

This is a small update that improves some quality-of-life issues, and fixes some important crashes due to mishandling of some non-fatal DirectX errors.

 

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 4.2.14:

 

  • New: "Tolerance Alpha Mode" toggle button added to the toolbar for the Magic Wand, Paint Bucket, and Recolor tools. This permits switching the algorithm for color comparison between premultiplied (default) and straight. "Straight" will distinguish between transparent pixels with different color values, whereas premultiplied will see them as equivalent.
  • New: Holding Ctrl while using the Color Picker tool will sample from the merged image (vs. just the current layer)
  • New: The file name in the title bar will now have a prepended asterisk when it has unsaved changes
  • Changed: The image close 'X' button can now be clicked for images that are not currently active
  • Fixed: The Rectangle Select tool, when used to draw a constrained, fixed ratio, or fixed size selection, will now correctly clamp the rectangle to be within the canvas
  • Fixed: Layers -> Move Layer Up/Down/Top/Bottom was not working for images with fewer than 3 layers
  • Fixed: Edit -> Erase Selection will now fill with transparent black (#00000000) instead of transparent white (#00FFFFFF)
  • Fixed: Custom Shapes will now be displayed in a consistently sorted order
  • Fixed: ".pdnSave" ghost files should no longer linger when saving to the desktop. This was due to a bug in Windows and File Explorer.
  • Fixed crashes due to DXGI/Direct3D "lost device" or "device removed" errors that can happen for various reasons (dock/undock, driver update, low memory, etc.)
  • New: Plugins can now use the IArrayPoolService, a wrapper around .NET's ArrayPool, to optimize their array allocations
  • Updated bundled AVIF FileType plugin to v1.1.6. See the pdn-avif releases page on GitHub (https://github.com/0xC0000054/pdn-avif/releases) for more information.

 

Enjoy!

The description of "Tolerance Alpha Mode" is so long that I think users may not have enough patience and time to read (the tip is displayed for only a few seconds). How about moving the descriptions of Premultiplied and Straight to the tips of specific options.

I'm interested in understanding why this is valuable/important.

In this version paint.net for all color themes except Dark, the Color Wheel markers became white and invisible against the background of the Interface window.

The removal of the EnableAutoGlass property has caused several plugins by @Ed Harvey to stop working.
