    Paint.Net v4.2.9 Released (January 31, 2020)
    Announcement
    Download / Windows Store
    Roadmap and Changelog
    Changes since 4.2.8:
    • Reduced overall memory usage (commit size) by up to 1/3rd by eliminating the per-image scratch buffer
    • Greatly improved performance when finishing actions of most tools by employing a shared cache between the render and commit code paths
    • Reduced memory usage when working with many tools by consolidating homogenous tiles (those that are comprised of a single color value)
    • Significantly improved performance of most history actions (commit, undo, redo) by switching from NTFS compression to multithreaded LZ4 compression for history files
    • Significantly improved performance of undo/redo with very complex selections (e.g. from the Magic Wand tool)
    • Improved performance of Image -> Flatten (also affects flattening when saving)
    • Improved performance of the Invert Colors and Desaturate adjustments by disabling hardware acceleration for them (too much overhead in copying tiles to the GPU for such trivial rendering kernels)
    • Improved performance when saving by moving thumbnail rendering for the File -> Open Recent menu to a background thread
    • Reduced memory usage when printing, and removed a rare crash that was related to its use of the (now removed) scratch buffer
    • Improved performance of effect rendering when a complex selection is active (improved caching)
    • New: Added a "busy spinner" to the canvas when using the Magic Wand and Paint Bucket tools
    • New translation: Hebrew (HE)
    • New translation: Slovak (SK)
    • Fixed a really goofy crash that required drawing with the paintbrush and, without letting go of the mouse button, moving the mouse into the toolbar and then using the mouse wheel to change the brush width
    • Fixed a layout bug with the image list button
    • Fixed an error that prevented saving some images as JPEGs if they had EXIF Interop metadata (PropertyNotFoundException)
    • Fixed a crash when running on a CPU that supports AVX but with an OS that is configured to not support it (via bcdedit /set xsavedisable 1)
    • Fixed a crash when pressing the spacebar after switching to a tool but before it has received any mouse input events
    • Fixed a rare crash when opening the Levels adjustments with certain types of selections
    • Fixed a crash when checking for updates with an expired alpha/beta build
    • Fixed a crash (FileLoadException) when DLLs are not updated correctly by the updater
    • Updated WebPFileType plugin to version 1.3.2 (thanks @null54!)
    • Updated DDSFileTypePlus plugin to version 1.9.9. This adds support for X8B8G8R8 and R8G8B8 formats, and fixes a visual glitch when previewing cube maps in some formats. (thanks @null54!)

    Paint.Net v4.2.11 Released (May 20, 2020)
    Announcement
    Download / Windows Store
    Roadmap and Changelog
    Changes since 4.2.10:
    • New: XMP metadata is now preserved for supported file types (PDN, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, JPEG XR, HEIC, AVIF, WEBP)
    • New: Belarusian (be) translation
    • New: Greek (el) translation
    • New: Slovenian (sl) translation
    • New: Added a right-click context menu to the image thumbnail/tab. It contains commands for Copy Path, Open Containing Folder, Save, Save As, and Close.
    • New: The items in the File -> Open Recent menu now have a tooltip with the full file path for the image
    • Changed: The selection outline animation is now smoother (2x the framerate)
    • Fixed: Saving with the HEIC file type is no longer limited to a max Quality value of 90. This limitation was in place because of a crash due to heap corruption, which no longer happens.
    • Fixed: The NVIDIA sharpening setting will no longer cause trippy distortions in the canvas area
    • Fixed an issue with loading very small TGA images, first reported here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116100-tga-rle-truecolor-1×1-image-failed-to-load/. Thanks @null54 or the fix!
    • Fixed: Error dialogs when opening images now consistently show the file path
    • Fixed a PropertyNotFoundException error message when saving JPEG images with a particular ordering of metadata. This was due to a bug in Windows 7’s WIC JPEG codec. First reported here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116079-jpg-cant-save-some-file/
    • Fixed clipped text rendering in the Curves adjustment dialog in some non-English translations.
    • Fixed a crash when running the app with a DPI scaling setting of 500%
    • Fixed a crash that would sometimes happen when running effects with very small selections
    • Fixed some IndirectUI controls not honoring their default values if also initialized in read only (disabled) mode. Thanks @BoltBait for the fix!
    • Fixed a memory leak in the effect system that was causing 1 orphaned thread per effect invocation
    • Changed: Removed the use of NTFS Transactions, which was causing trouble with OneDrive. Microsoft has also deprecated this technology.
    • New: Added /openCrashLogFolder command-line argument. This is intended for simplifying troubleshooting workflows.
    • New: Added /forceUpdateCheck command-line argument. This is intended for troubleshooting scenarios to simplify acquiring the latest version, e.g. "just run paintdotnet:/forceUpdateCheck" instead giving a longer list of buttons to click on.
    • Updated WebPFileType plugin to version 1.3.4.0, which adds XMP metadata support. Thanks @null54!
    • Updated DDSFileTypePlus plugin to version 1.10.3. This fixes an issue with saving in the A1R5G5B5, A4R4G4B4, and R5G6B5 formats, and adds support for reading files that use a ‘BC7\0’ FourCC. Thanks @null54!
