paint.net 5.0.1 is now available!


Recommended Posts

This is a small update with a few important bug fixes, updates to the bundled plugins, and a new toolbar button to enable/disable pressure sensitivity.

 

For all the details on what's new in 5.0 (there's a lot!), check out its release post.

 

Changes since 5.0:

  • New: Added a button in the toolbar, next to Brush Size, for enabling/disabling pressure sensitivity. The button will only appear if a compatible pen or drawing tablet is detected, and Windows Ink has not been disabled in Settings.
  • Fixed some issues with the main window that would only happen on multimonitor Windows 10 systems
  • Fixed a few small issues with the Zoom tool
  • Fixed an issue when saving a JPEG or TIFF with certain types of 0-length IPTC metadata
  • Fixed: On older systems with multiple GPUs (e.g. Intel HD iGPU and an AMD/NVIDIA dGPU), where the first enumerated GPU does not support Direct3D 11, PDN will now use the next enumerated GPU that meets the Direct3D 11 requirement, rather than falling back to CPU rendering.
  • Fixed a rendering bug when using the Pencil tool on small images exactly 2 pixels wide
  • Fixed some crashes on systems with buggy GPU drivers. Paint.NET will try to revert to software rendering in this case.
  • Fixed a crash on some systems with multiple pen/tablet devices, where some of the devices were claiming the same cursor ID
  • Changed: All binaries are now digitally signed, not just EXEs and the shell extension DLLs (thanks @null54 for the help!)
  • Updated the bundled AvifFileType plugin to version 1.1.23, which fixes an issue with progressive decoding (thanks @null54!) 
  • Updated the bundled DDSFileTypePlus plugin to version 1.11.0.0, which now detects files saved with the wrong extension and tries to load the file anyway (thanks @null54!)
  • Updated the bundled WebPFileType plugin to version 1.3.16.0, which fixes the detection of misnamed files (thanks @null54!)

Get the Update

There are two releases of Paint.NET:

  • Microsoft Store release (recommended)
  • Classic Desktop release
    • Download the installer from the website. This is the recommended download if you don't have Paint.NET installed. It can also be used to update the app.
    • If you already have it installed, you should be offered the update automatically within the next week or so, but you can also get it immediately by going to ⚙ Settings -> Updates -> Check Now.
    • Offline Installers and Portable ZIPs are available over on GitHub.

Now that you've updated Paint.NET, be sure to update my plugins by downloading here:

Even if you've updated my plugin pack since upgrading to Paint.NET v5.0, I've been fixing bugs and adding features since then.  Now's a good time to refresh plugins!

I'm seeing an odd result with the Brush with these settings: Hardness 0, Spacing 1%, AA enabled. Basically I'm seeing thin echoes which extend outside of the brush tip

These echoes reduce in severity as the Spacing increases. Changing the Hardness doesn't seem to change the effect.

I have noticed this as well. I made a topic addressing it, hoping that it may not have been intentional.

This is just an artifact of how the brush rendering works. Krita does the same thing, FWIW.

 

Older versions of PDN had a hard coded spacing value of 15 or 20%, so you could never have seen this.

Drop Shadow Opacity: Cannot set values with Up/Down arrows on keyboard. The values toggle between 0 and 1.

Thanks, I'll be sure to fix that for 5.0.2

Update 5 broke the fill texture plug in :(

I use this regularly and can't find older versions of the software... Any ideas on what to do?

 

 

You already posted in the plugin's thread, which is where the discussion should be.

Hi Rick,

 

Found another one :)

 

Rectangle Selection tool + Fixed Ratio or Fixed Size.

 

I used to be able to tab between the Width & Height fields. Tabbing off the Width now loses focus and disappears.

 

5.0.1, both Store and Classic versions.

Thanks :) Someone else also reported this. It's due to the other fixes I put in for some long standing mouse/keyboard focus issues. I think this is solvable though.

Hi,

 

we use Paint.Net on our Terminal Servers (2016 /21H2). Is there any support planned for the new 5 Version?

 

Regards Jan

 

An update on this: Windows Server 2016 is not supported because it cannot be updated beyond v1607. You will need Windows Server 2019 or 2022.
