Paint.NET v3.30 Release Candidate 1 is now available


Recommended Posts

Well this has been an interesting release to push out the door ... all sorts of interesting hurdles have come up including hardware threatening to fail, myself being really busy with other cool stuff at my day job, translators with food poisoning (they are better now thankfully!), and pyrochild's computer refusing to work with a test build. Have no fear though, it's almost ready to go! I had a few code changes since Beta 2 so I decided to push out a Release Candidate instead of a "Final" build tonight. If all goes as planned, the final release will be pushed out this weekend.

As usual, you can get this build from the built-in updater (Help -> Check for Updates), or by downloading it straight off the website: http://www.getpaint.net/

Changes since Beta 2:

    * Fixed: Various UI issues with the Levels adjustment.
    * Fixed: When pasting text into the Text tool with Ctrl+V, it would hide the nub for moving the text.
    * Fixed: If the startup tool was set to the Zoom or Pan (Hand) tool, then the toolbar would render incorrectly.
    * Changed: Enabled some compiler settings which improve security via support for DEP (/nxcompat), and Windows Vista's Address Space Layout Randomization feature (ASLR) (/dynamicbase).

haha... that was fun :D

Hopefully nobody else has the same issue, though. I certainly don't look forward to teaching people about the registry...

Sorry if this was already postet, but I have no time to check it right now. Did anyone else notice problems with the PNG export with 8 and 32 bit colors? Both don't work for me, if the image is too big. I got the problem with Beta2 too. I just tried to save an image of 3224x4436 pixels and it didn't work.

I tried to reproduce the effect by creating an empty screen and filling it with stuff, but it didn't produce the error.

I will send you a PN with a sample image.

No offense, but why do we get extra security in a drawing program that is in .NET anyway?

You seem to be misunderstanding how security should be viewed.

First, .NET does not remove the necessity to worry about security issues. There are certain classes of errors (and security issues) that are no longer an issue as far as we know, but there are still plenty of others to be on the lookout for.

Second, don't discount the need for security in depth. Imaging/drawing applications are not immune to security breaches -- just look at the WMF exploit from last year. Security issues tend to pop up where you least expect them to.

Third, the settings I'm referring to are actually for the C++ compiler which is used for the shell extension and Squish (DDS support) DLL's, as well as two EXE's that are used during installation. Newer versions of the C++ compiler have been including these features, but they are not turned on by default because they could cause compatibility issues, and as such you should test to make sure your code is compatible with the new feature.
