paint.net 4.3 alpha build 7918

Rick Brewster

Recommended Posts

This build fixes 2 more bugs that were present in builds 7916 and 7917.


Get the update

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).


Direct download links:


Note that the offline installer may still need to download some prerequisites if you're on a Windows 7 or 8.1 machine that is not up-to-date via Windows Update. You do not need to have .NET installed, as these builds use self-contained deployment.


Changes since 4.3 alpha build 7917:

  • Fixed a bug in the FileType plugin loader that resulted in any attempt to open or save images to crash the app. This would happen if a plugin existed with types decorated with attributes from assemblies that did not exist (e.g. from a unit testing framework).
  • Fixed a bug with tool cursors not switching to their "mouse down" forms

The two bugs I reported yesterday:

  1. Tried to save a single layer PNG.
  2. Unable to open images from File > Recent.

..are both fixed in this build. :mrgreen:


I've PM'd you a dropbox link to my plugin collection.

I'm getting a reproducable crash closing the ImPDF Save filetype plugin (on OK or cancel).

This is a filetype which has no load option.
