Why no Windоws 8.1 x64 support?

Recommended Posts

AFAIK Win8.1 is a pretty modern OS that has many program features that Win7 lacks (which is why it's harder to support I guess), it still even supported by Microsoft.

There's a plenty of software that doesn't support Windows 7 but works fine on Windows 8.1


So why is it won't be supported? Is PDN goes UWP in the next update?

NOTE for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and 32-bit/x86 users: Paint.NET v4.3.x will be the last release(s) that work on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or on any 32-bit/x86 version of Windows. It has become significantly more difficult and time consuming to support these lately, not very many people are using them, and I can no longer justify the cost and frustration of keeping support for these afloat. Starting with Paint.NET v4.4, only Windows 10 and 11+ will be supported, and only on 64-bit (x64 and ARM64). I have started working on v4.4 and will only release v4.3.x updates on an as-needed basis and only until v4.4 is completed.
