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.

 

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.

 

List of 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
  • Changed: In the Text tool, Ctrl+(Backspace, Delete, Arrow Keys) has been improved to work more like Microsoft Word. Thanks to @Bruce Bowyer-Smyth for the patch!
  • 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 (duck/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 Plus to v1.1.6. See the pdn-avif releases page on GitHub (https://github.com/0xC0000054/pdn-avif/releases) for more information.

Enjoy!

Hello

Is the store bought version of paint.net 4.2.15 have more options than the regular free download or is it a different version all together.

Plus do you get to purchase a CD/DVD that can be sent to your home or is it just a download from the web site.

Thank you...

Obtaining Paint.NET from the Microsoft Store provides automatic background updates and an easier installation.

It is a digital download only; no physical discs.

Hello after reading everything it looks like I need to upgrade to windows 10 before I can buy the store version.

So I need to do some research on what to do and how to download windows 10.

I already have my windows key which I believe that is required to upgrade.

Thank all of you for your help...
