Paint.NET v3.5.9 is now available
October 1, 2011

As usual, you can either use the built-in updater from the Utilities menu, or you can download and install directly from the website: http://www.getpaint.net/. There?s no need to worry about removing the old version; that is all handled automatically.

Here?s the changes from v3.5.8:
  1. Improved: The "Auto-detect" bit-depth setting for PNG, BMP, and TGA now also determines which bit-depth to use based on which one produces the smallest file size, as well as which ones can save the image without losing fidelity.
  2. Improved: You can now use Ctrl+0 as a shortcut key for View -> Actual Size, in addition to Ctrl+Shift+A and Ctrl+Alt+0.
  3. Fixed: Some text in the DirectDraw Surface (DDS) Save Configuration UI was not being loaded.
  4. Fixed: Some DirectDraw Surface (DDS) files authored with other software (e.g. Unreal 2004) could not be loaded.
  5. Fixed: In some rare circumstances, clicking on the Save button in the toolbar would crash.
  6. Fixed: The Korean translation has been added back in, with the help of Bing machine translation to cover the few remaining strings that were untranslated.
Also, fixes since the 3.5.9 Beta include a few compatibility issues with plugins.

A small bug in Paint.NET v3.5.9 with Ctrl+0
October 2, 2011

"Yesterday, I released Paint.NET v3.5.9, which has some good bug fixes, as well as adding back the Korean translation and mapping Ctrl+0 to the View ?> Actual Size command. Ctrl+0 is now the ?primary? shortcut key listed in the View menu. As it turns out, I forgot to do one small thing. You see, Ctrl+1 through Ctrl+9 are shortcut keys for ?switch to image 1? through ?switch to image 9.?

As it turns out, I forgot to deactivate Ctrl+0 as a shortcut key for ?switch to image 10.? So, if you have 10 or more images open, Ctrl+0 will not work for View ?> Actual Size. Thankfully, it does not perform both actions in this case, and you can still use Ctrl+Shift+A or Ctrl+Alt+0. I will be rolling out an update called, you guessed it, Paint.NET v3.5.10, to fix this.

In the meantime, my recommendation is to install v3.5.9. However, if you?re planning on a deployment and would like to save some effort, I advise you to hold off until v3.5.10 is available. It should be next weekend (October 8th/9th) or the following (October 15th/16th). I may take the opportunity to fix another bug if any are found, or maybe to bundle in a performance improvement or two."... Rick Brewster

Paint.NET 3.5.10

- Fixed: Ctrl+Shift+A now works again as a shortcut for View -> Actual Size (broken in 3.5.9)
- Fixed: Ctrl+0 still works for View -> Actual Size even if 10 or more images are open (broken in 3.5.9, it would switch to the 10th image).

Paint.NET 3.5.11 released

Rick Brewster - August 17, 2013: »www.getpaint.net/index.html

 

The primary goal of this update is preparing for the v4.0 release: v3.5.10 will not be able to offer the v4.0 update, but v3.5.11 will. I’m not a fan of putting out an update for purely infrastructure purposes so I’ve also reverse-ported a handful of low-risk improvements from the v4.0 code base. This way we all win.

As usual, you can download it directly from the website or you can use the built-in updater via Utilities –> Check for Updates.

Here are the changes for this release:
• Fixed: The Gaussian Blur effect was incorrectly calculating alpha values for non-opaque pixels. (»forums.getpai...istreats-alpha/)
• Improved performance of the Sharpen effect by about 25%
• Improved performance of the Median effect by about 30%
• Improved performance of the Fragment effect by about 40%
• Improved performance of the Unfocus effect by about 100%
• Reduced memory usage when many selection manipulation operations are in the history/undo stack (the undo data is now saved to disk)
• The built-in updater now supports upgrading to paint.net 4.0 (once it’s available)

Check out the blog post for more details, including stuff about 4.0!

(Please note that the update manifests are still uploading. "Check for Updates" may not work for some folks until about 6pm PST.)

Paint.NET 4.0 Release Candidate (build 5284)

June 20, 2014

 

Dev Blog:

The penultimate build is here: the release candidate! The only changes that should occur between this build and the final release are the those related to the translations. In other words, the code is complete unless there’s a Priority Defcon 0 Nuclear Holocaust type bug that’s found (which I don’t expect). I believe the final release will be sometime next week.

As usual, to install, you can either 1) use the built-in updater from a previous 4.0 build, or 2) use the built-in updater from v3.5.11 if you have “Also check for pre-release (beta) builds”, or 3) download from the forum at http://forums.getpai...ate-build-5284/

 

Changes since the last beta build (5278):

  • Pasting with the Text tool should no longer hide the move handle
  • The rotation anchor (Move, Shapes) is now less intrusive
  • Fixed focus rectangles in some controls that effects use (check boxes, radio buttons, sliders)
  • Fixed a layout issue with the ruler in some very specific scenarios
  • Hardware acceleration is now enabled by default for some Intel GPUs (e.g. Intel HD 4000 series)

Have fun with the final code over the weekend

 

See 4.0 change log/history

http://blog.getpaint.net/

 

NOTE: 4.0 requires Windows 7 SP1 or newer (including 8/8.1, but excluding XP and Vista), and uses .NET Framework 4.5 (it will be installed automatically if needed).

Paint.NET 4.0.2 

July 15, 2014

 

This update is focused on fixing a few key regressions in functionality from 3.5, as well as fixing some other small (but important!) bugs.  As usual, you can download it directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now.

 

Changes since 4.0.1:

  • Fixed the gamma and contrast for text rendering on some systems where the wrong values were being used ("rainbow" text)
  • Colors window now correctly lets you paste a hex color value that starts with a hash, e.g. #112233
  • Gradient tool now lets you reverse a transparency gradient by clicking the right mouse button on one of the handles (regression from 3.5)
  • Move Selected Pixels now lets you hold Control to leave a copy of the selected area behind on the initial move (regression from 3.5)
  • Paint Bucket tool’s hatch fill modes weren’t working with the Overwrite blending mode (regression from 3.5)
  • Fixed a keyboard tabbing issue in the Resize dialog (regression from 3.5)
  • Fixed the language setting in the Settings dialog not always allowing you to set it to English if your system’s default language is non-English
  • Fixed a performance issue that caused images with many layers (50+) to take a VERY long time to open, close, or even switch away from (regression from 3.5)
  • Fixed a rare crash at application exit
  • Fixed an issue that prevented 4.0.1 from installing on top of 4.0 when using the MSI (e.g. AD/GPO network deployment)
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause the installer to take 30+ seconds to appear
Paint.NET 4.0.1

July 12, 2014

 

This update is focused on fixing some important crashes, bricks, and functionality issues, and also on a few key performance optimizations.  As usual, you can download it directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now.

 

Changes since 4.0:

  • Move Selected Pixels tool performance has been significantly optimized.
  • Move Selected Pixels tool was always leaving transparent black behind instead of the secondary color with alpha removed.
  • Brush tools with odd-sized brushes and no antialiasing were drawing at 1 size smaller.
  • Fixed some apparent ‘lag’ in the brush tools due to an off-by-1 glitch in the stroke path calculation code.
  • The brush tool preview circle no longer scales by the system DPI setting, which made it too big.
  • Removed the momentary hourglass/wait cursor after drawing (e.g. pencil and brush tools).
  • Optimized performance of the Shapes tool, especially for the Ellipse shape.
  • Paint Bucket tool will now correctly treat the selection as a boundary contour.
  • Zoom tool no longer crashes sometimes when pressing the right mouse button while already holding the left mouse button.
  • The status bar now reports the correct selection location when it’s outside the image boundaries (e.g. negative values).
  • Auto-scrolling on the edge of the window now works correctly and doesn’t require you to "jiggle the mouse" for each scroll update.
  • Touch screens no longer scroll when swiping up/down with one finger.
  • Improved the pixel grid’s contrast so it’s not overwhelmingly bright.
  • The transparency "checkerboard" is now aligned to the top-left of the image, instead of the top-left of the canvas.
  • The cursor position reported in the status bar was off-by-1 when the value was supposed to be negative.
  • Some controls (e.g. units selection in the Image->Resize dialog) were not drawing focus rectangles when using the keyboard.
  • Fixed a crash (OutOfMemoryException) when using a selection tool when hardware acceleration is disabled.
  • Fixed a crash (TimeBeforeLastUpdateException) in the installer. This usually happens when running in a virtual machine, and only affects animations.
  • Fixed a crash (BadImageFormatException) at startup. This indicates an installation error, and will be automatically repaired.
  • Fixed various crashes caused by having the wrong (old) version of PaintDotNet.SystemLayer.Native.dll. This indicates an installation error, and will be automatically repaired.
  • Improved performance when software rendering is used (e.g. when hardware accelerated rendering is disabled).
  • All 7th generation Intel GPUs now default to hardware rendering. All older Intel GPUs default to software rendering.
  • Fixed graphical artifacts (blackness, flickering, mouse trails) on certain GPUs (e.g. NVIDIA Optimus).
  • NVIDIA ION graphics cards now default to software rendering due to crashes.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing beta updates to be offered even if “Also check for pre-release (beta) versions of paint.net” was disabled in Settings
 
Paint.NET 4.0

June 24, 2014

 

Thanks to everyone who helped out with the extensive alpha and beta releases with all the bug reports, crash log submissions, and general feedback. It has all been a tremendous help in creating the best paint.net release ever! It’s been a long time coming, but I think it’s worth it.

 

There are a few ways to get the new version:

  1. The preferred way: If you’re using Paint.NET v3.5.x, go to the Utilities menu and click on “Check for Updates.” If you’re using a pre-release version of 4.0 (beta or release candidate), go to the Settings dialog, then to the Updates section, and then click “Check Now.”
  2. You can also download it directly from the website, http://www.getpaint.net/ . There is no need to uninstall the old version: that will be taken care of automatically.

Here is the final list of changes, features, improvements, and fixes: http://blog.getpaint...-now-available/

Paint.net 4.0.3 is now available

July 22, 2014

 

This update fixes a few small bugs and improves performance. There are still some performance issues when working with lots of layers, particularly when using Layers –> Import From File, but I plan on fixing those in the near future as well. Optimization work is never complete, and is quite fun and rewarding

 

As usual, you can download it directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now.

 

Changes since 4.0.2:

  • Further improved performance when working with images that have a lot of layers.
  • Fixed some flickering in the Layers form.
  • Fixed the Language selector in the Settings dialog.
  • Fixed 2-finger touchpad and touch screen scrolling.
  • Aero peek thumbnails now include the pixel grid if it’s enabled.
  • Fixed a crash in the thumbnail renderer that sometimes happened when switching between images.
  • Ctrl+W no longer exits the application if zero images are open.

Paint.net 4.0.4 is now available

November 29, 2014

 

Developers Announcement:

As I discussed in an earlier blog post, this update greatly improves performance in some key areas like the Magic Wand and Move Selected Pixels tools. It also fixes some important bugs, and even gives back a feature that got lost in the move from 3.5 to 4.0. Good stuff all around!

As usual, you can download it directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now.

Here’s the change log:

  • New: Added a ‘Fill’ property to the Paintbrush tool (regression from 3.5).
  • Faster: Move Selected Pixels has been significantly optimized.
  • Faster: Magic Wand Tool has been significantly optimized.
  • Faster: Working with aliased selections ("aliased selection quality" in the toolbar) has been significantly optimized.
  • Faster: Edit->Copy and Edit->Copy Merged are now up to 2x faster.
  • Faster: Drawing when a selection is active; clipping performance is now improved.
  • Fixed: The Text tool no longer produces terrible looking text when using Smooth rendering mode without antialiasing.
  • Fixed: The Gear shape had a few glitches.
  • Fixed: Using a Fill pattern with the Paint Bucket would sometimes produces misaligned or "corrupt looking" results.
  • Fixed: The alignment of the menu buttons in the top-right was off by 2 pixels, causing them to look weird at high-DPI.
  • Fixed: The zoom buttons in the status bar would not recognize clicks unless the main window was already in focus.
  • Fixed: Some incorrect errors about requiring Windows 7 SP1 when launching the installer from something like an old version of WinZip.
  • Fixed: Edit->Clear Selection and Edit->Cut were filling with transparent black (#00000000) instead of transparent white (#00FFFFFF). This caused some discrepancies compared to older versions of Paint.NET (regression from 3.5).
  • Fixed: Pressing Ctrl+A when a drawing tool was active would sometimes incorrectly show a tinted selection.
  • Fixed: Text in the title bar was not visible when using a 3rd party Aero theme with black titlebars

This update introduces overscroll, which is the ability to scroll the canvas past the bounds of the image. This has been a highly requested feature for several years now, and it’s finally here

 

Also included is a big serving of miscellaneous bug fixes and small improvements.

As usual, you can download the update directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now.

 

Change log:

  • New: The canvas may now be scrolled past the edge of the image
  • New: When holding the spacebar, you may scroll using the keyboard arrow keys (in addition to click-and-drag panning). Holding Ctrl will scroll at 10x the rate.
  • New: You can now hold Ctrl+Shift while clicking on the floating window icons in order to reset their location and docking. Ctrl+Shift along with the appropriate hotkey (F5, F6, F7, F8) also does the trick.
  • Improved: The rate of auto-scrolling, which triggers when the mouse is at the canvas edge and a button is being held down, has been improved and is based on time instead of frames
  • Improved: Fixed Size selection drawing now defaults to 400×300 pixels instead of 4×3 inches
  • Improved: Tooltips for Custom Shapes now include their file system location
  • Improved: Edit->Invert Selection should perform much faster when used with unmodified selections from the Magic Wand tool
  • Improved: When running within VMWare, "Hardware accelerated rendering" is disabled by default (Microsoft’s WARP is faster than VMWare’s D3D emulation)
  • Fixed: Erratic brush/pencil drawing when running within VMWare (this is caused by a bug in Win32’s GetMouseMovePointEx API, and is not actually limited to VMWare)
  • Fixed: Color Picker tool could crash if used at the bottom of the image, as reported at http://forums.getpai...-screen-update/
  • Fixed: There was a glitch in the Gradient tool’s rendering when dx was equal to dy, as reported at http://forums.getpai...ion-and-length/
  • Fixed: The Layers window would sometimes auto-scroll the active layer to the bottom when performing certain operations, as reported at http://forums.getpai...or-duplicating/
  • Fixed some mouse cursor glitches when using panning using the spacebar
  • Fixed many glitches and a few crashes in the image size dialogs (File->New, Image->Resize, Image->Canvas Size)
  • Fixed a problem with inconsinstently skipped input when using the arrow keys to move tool handles, as reported at http://forums.getpai...ction-keys-bug/
  • Fixed: Custom Shapes did not always have the correct bounding box, and would have weird behavior as a result
  • Fixed: Line/Curve handles were unusable for up to 500ms after adjusting properties in the toolbar
  • Fixed some crashes and soft hangs in the Save Configuration dialog
  • Fixed a blemish at the top of the main window when Windows is set to 200% DPI
  • Fixed: There were some precision bugs with IndirectUI sliders that would cause them to get "stuck" at certain values (mostly affects effect plugins)
  • Improved: IndirectUI’s Angle Chooser control now supports the DecimalPlaces property (for plugins)
  • Improved: IndirectUI’s Slider controls now support all-negative ranges (e.g. [-200, -20])

This is a hotfix for a crash that results from copying images from some web browsers. Unfortunately this seems to be the result of a bug in either the .NET Framework or Windows. I’ll try to follow up with folks at Microsoft when I have some time to do so.

As usual, you can download the update directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now.

 

Change log:

  • Fixed a crash or hang that sometimes happens when copying images from Internet Explorer, Edge, or Firefox, and then using File->New or Edit->Paste in paint.net.
