Paint.NET v3.07 BETA is now available


Recommended Posts

As usual, get it via the built-in updater*, or at the website: http://www.getpaint.net/ .

* Make sure that "Also check for pre-release (beta) versions" is enabled in the updater options (Help -> Check for Updates, then click Options).

This update enhances the Line/Curve tool, significantly reduces the download size, and fixes some bugs related to opening and saving files in Windows Vista.

* Note: For the beta, the new features are only in English. The translations will be complete for the final release.

* New: Line/Curve tool has been enhanced to allow drawing arrowheads, and to draw with various dashed- and dotted- styles.

* New: Image tab thumbnails now have an indicator if the respective image has unsaved changes (an orange asterisk is shown).

* Improved: The Save Configuration dialog (choose JPEG quality, etc.) now allows you to maximize it. It also remembers its relative location and size.

* Changed: The help file / documentation is now hosted online. This has reduced the download size by more than 3 MB, and will also allow us to provide translations without ballooning the size of the download (each language would have added between 2 and 4MB).

* Changed: The "image list button" (downward triangle) is also shown when only 1 image is open (it used to only display if 2 or more images were open). This is being done for the sake of consistency.

* Fixed: Some operations would reset the selected layer to the first/lowest layer. This selection is now preserved.

* Fixed: Several problems have been fixed within our implementation surrounding the new Vista Open/Save dialogs. This includes: opening an image from an http:// source, opening images from a digital camera that is not mapped to a file system path (such as a drive letter), the Save dialog not always prompting you about overwriting an existing file, and many corner cases that previously caused crashes.

Nice! Thanks a lot!

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.

Yeah, I'm in the process of designing my main page, and I'm discovering just how useful the dashed line feature is. Before it existed, you had to make a long 1px selection, change the fill type, lower the secondary colors alpha....

Bug Report:

Rick, I'm sure you noticed this but, with the Rounded Cap and the Line Style set to Dashed or Dotted, there are instances(dependent on line length) where the end Rounded Cap disappears.

/Bug Report

I do love the new line options!

How long before we will see a tapered end cap option? :D

I really like the line/curve tool.

What bothers me is that I cant add more ehm... holders...

Theres only four now. The ones that comes up after you draw the line.

Is there a problem not to be able to add more holders?'

edit: nubs. thats the word i was looking for. :/

grrr...having a problem with updates. They won't install. This is one error, the other is windows installer problem! Can we update without using that windows installer, which seems to decide what it feels like installing! Or, must I remove Paint.net completely and start from scratch? (This Windows installer is really ticking me off.)

Wow, v2.64 -- that is very old!

In the Bugs & Troubleshooting section, try reading the very first post, "Are you having problems uninstalling or installing".

Thanks Rick. I knew I tried that before but forgot that this is what I ran into last time, and again this time: (I have no idea what it means!) And I spent 4 hours on the phone with Microsoft and $35.00 later, I still have "select" problems with windows installer.

Fitz, can you move this to the Bugs & Troubleshooting section? Just create a new thread and copy+paste all the info in to it. That's a better place to figure this out than in the 3.07 Beta announcement thread.
