    4.0.10 Released
    July 10 2016

    Whats New
    • 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, F:cool: 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 400x300 pixels instead of 4x3 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])

    Paint.Net v4.0.11 Released
    September 10th, 2016

    Whats New
    • New: Rounded Rectangle's corner size ("radius") is now configurable
    • New: Overscroll can now be disabled from within Settings
    • Fixed: The Zoom tool was broken in 4.0.10
    • Fixed: Auto scroll will no longer engage overscroll. This prevents the image from shooting off in all directions when drawing on it or when making a selection.
    • Fixed: Panning with the middle mouse button would sometimes be "sticky", as reported at http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/110131-dragging-with-the-mouse-wheel-is-sticky/
    • Fixed: Effect rendering performance had significantly regressed in 4.0.10, by as much as 50%, on Intel CPUs with HyperThreading. http://forums.getpaint.net/index.ph...y-slower-on-windows-10-compared-to-windows-7/
    • Fixed: Selecting the entire image and then using Zoom to Selection or the Zoom Tool would align the image in an awkward manner
    • Fixed: In rare cases, Settings -> Plugin Errors was hanging the whole system (bug in WPF?). This UI is now implemented in WinForms instead of WPF. http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/110002-plugin-error-screen-complete-pc-freezelockout/
    • Fixed: Some more high-DPI issues, especially when using multiple monitors with mixed DPI, or when using Remote Desktop

    Paint.Net v4.0.14 Released
    April 9, 2017

    This is a minor update that slightly improves the brush tools, and fixes a few weird issues that some people were seeing.
    Whats New

    • Improved the performance of the Brush tools when antialiasing is enabled
    • Improved the quality of the Brush tools when antialiasing is disabled
    • Fixed: Edit->Paste wasn’t working with some images that came from Firefox (as discussed at »forums.getpaint.net/inde ··· ipboard/ )
    • Fixed: Improved the reliability of Image->Crop to Selection on 32-bit systems. Instead of crashing when it runs out of memory, it will just show an error.
    • Fixed: Reduced crashes when loading UI images caused by an unreliable Windows component ("System.ArgumentException: Parameter is not valid")
    • Fixed: When manually checking for updates in the Settings dialog and the user didn’t actually have the necessary security privileges, a crash might result instead of an error dialog.

    Quick question...
    My wife used PaintShop Pro on her XP system only to copy several images into it and then resize, crop and perhaps rearrange them. Paintshop Pro X9 seems expensive and overkill for what she wants to do. Will paint.net do this?

    Paint.Net v4.0.17 Released (July 20, 2017)
    Download
    Roadmap and Changelog
    paint.net 4.0.17 - Download, released on July 20th, 2017
    This update improves performance and fixes a lot of small issues.
      • Added: "Fluid mouse input" option in Settings -> UI -> Troubleshooting. If you see major glitches while drawing, try disabling this.
      • Improved: Default brush size, font size, and corner radius size now scales with major DPI scaling levels (brush size of 2 at 100% scaling, brush size of 4 at 200% scaling, etc)
      • Improved: Default image size now scales with major DPI scaling levels (800x600 at 100%, 1600x1200 at 200%, etc.)
      • Improved performance and drawing latency by removing explicit calls to System.GC.Collect() except when low memory conditions are encountered
      • Improved performance by greatly reducing object allocation amplification by reducing the concurrency level when using ConcurrentDictionary, and by removing WeakReference allocations in favor of direct GCHandle usage
      • Improved: Performance and battery usage by ensuring animations always run at the monitor's actual refresh rate
      • Improved (reduced) CPU usage when moving the mouse around the canvas
      • Removed: "Hold Ctrl to hide handle" from the Text tool because it was not useful and caused lots of confusion
      • Fixed: Various high-DPI fixes, including horrible looking mouse cursors caused by a bug in the latest .NET WinForms update
      • Fixed: Gradient tool no longer applies dithering "outside" of the gradient (in areas that should have a solid color)
      • Fixed: Very slow performance opening the Effects menu when lots of plugins are installed after installing the Windows 10 Creators Update
      • Fixed: When cropping and then performing an undo, the scroll position was totally wrong
      • Fixed a rendering glitch in the Save Configuration dialog (it would "wiggle")
      • Fixed: At certain brush sizes, the brush indicator on the canvas had a visual glitch in it due to a bug in Direct2D
      • Fixed: Text tool buttons for Bold, Italics, Underline were not localized for a few languages
      • Fixed a rare crash in the taskbar thumbnails
      • Fixed: Drawing with an aliased brush and opaque color (alpha=255) sometimes resulted in non-opaque pixels due to a bug in Direct2D's ID2D1RenderTarget::FillOpacityMask
      • Fixed: "Olden" effect should no longer cause crashes (it still has some rendering artifacts due to its multithreading problems, however)

    Paint.Net
    v4.0.18 Released (September 30, 2017)
    This version is also available on the Windows Store.
    Download
    Roadmap and Changelog
    paint.net 4.0.18 - Download, released on September 29th, 2017
    • Improved: Startup performance has been improved by about 25%
    • New: Now available on the Windows Store! https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9NBHCS1LX4R0
    • Improved: Plugins can now be installed per-user into "Documents\paint.net App Files" into folders named Effects, FileTypes, and Shapes. This is required for using plugins with the Store release. To disable this (e.g. for administrators), set the "Plugins/AllowLoadingPluginsFromUserLocations" key to "false" (HKLM\Software\paint.net).
    • Improved: When using Portable Mode, custom palette files are stored next to the EXE instead of in Documents
    • Fixed: There was a crash on some systems that may have prevented the app from starting up (MissingMethodException for "System.GC.Collect")

    Paint.Net v4.0.19 Released
    Oct. 03, 2017

    This is a hotfix that fixes a startup crash, and fixes Explorer thumbnails.

    As usual, you can download the update directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now. You can also purchase it from the Windows Store, in which case updates will become completely automatic and you’ll never have to worry about it ever again

    This is the first time that folks will get the chance to have an update through the Windows Store (that is, to update from 4.0.18 to 4.0.19). Hopefully everything goes smoothly. I expect the Store version will be “behind” the Classic version by a day or so, pending Microsoft’s certification and server propagation.

    Whats New
    • Fixed missing thumbnails in Explorer for non-.PDN images (e.g. .PNG, .JPG), if Paint.NET was configured to open these types by default
    • Fixed a crash at startup that affected some people with a redirected Documents folder (e.g. network share)

    Download: Paint.NET v4.0.19

    Btw.: Paint.Net v4.0.20 requires .NET Framework 4.7.1
    And Windows 8 / Windows 10 earlier than 1511 are now longer supported.
