Paint.Net compiled in .Net 4.0


Recommended Posts

Will paint.net release a compiled version targeting .net 4.0?

Now it's about two years that .net 4.0 has been released and soon it will be released .net 4.5.

A lot of software has been updated to work with .net 4.0, could paint.net do the same?

I would like to get rid of the old .net 3.5 and I think I'm not the only one.

Just offer two installer, one for .net 3.5 and one for .net 4.0.

And why exactly do you need Paint.NET on .NET 4.0? Having both .NET 3.5 SP1 and 4.0 installed doesn't hurt at all. The additional disk space consumed is a problem we left back in the 90s, now that 1TB hard drives are the norm (or heck, even just 100GB).

.NET 4.0 doesn't magically upgrade stuff to be sexier and faster.

Paint.NET 4.0 is still under development. Be patient.

And if you don't have .NET 3.5 installed, Paint.NET will run on 4.0 anyway so.................................................................................................................................................

That isn't exactly supported though, and there are some known issues with doing that. As in, VERY BAD issues that will prevent you from opening certain .PDN images. I wish I hadn't included that ability.

Are there changes in serialization between .NET 3.5 and 4.0?

This would have impact to some of my projects.

To remove the .net 3.5 SP1

Having both .NET 3.5 SP1 and 4.0 installed doesn't hurt at all.

Also offering two installer doesn't hurt, and I'm sure if you offer both installer, most of the people will opt for the .net 4.0 version.

The additional disk space consumed is a problem we left back in the 90s, now that 1TB hard drives are the norm (or heck, even just 100GB).

That the hard drive are getting bigger is not an excuse to be inefficient, .net 4.0 is smaller than .net 3.5 SP1

.NET 4.0 doesn't magically upgrade stuff to be sexier and faster.

Why Should I Upgrade from .Net Framework 3.5 to .Net Framework 4

Is there a problem to change the target framework in visual studio and compile it for .net 4.0?

Yes; the problem is that it slows down Paint.NET 4.0 development. That's where he's focusing his energies; this is a minor issue. I'd suggest you learn to live with it. :)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Ok clearly someone thinks they know everything and know better. It's easy to ask for more free stuff when you're not the one who's doing any of the work.

Upgrading a software project to .NET 4.0 isn't the same as upgrading your GeForce. It isn't just plug it in and get extra framerate. It is an engineering task which requires a lot of testing and validation to ensure that millions of Paint.NET installations won't get bricked by some subtle change in the framework that wasn't noticed.

Could I do it? Yes, and I have. Would it be worth it? No, not for 3.5.x. Do I know what I'm talking about? Yes, and you're being extremely patronizing. Are you annoying? Yes. Should you shut up? Yes.
