Paint.NET 3.5 beta 2

Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for computers that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plugins.

Whats New:

  • The menu bar was rendering incorrectly for certain themes (Windows 7 / Vista).
  • Some items were not showing up in the 'Recent Items' jump list (Windows 7).
  • Clicking on the canvas straight from the menu would cause the paintbrush to draw a long streak.
  • Copy+Paste would sometimes miss a pixel edge on the right/bottom sides, when using Fixed Ratio / Fixed Size modes.
  • Fixed a crash when moving pixels off-canvas, switching tools, then trying to move the pixels back onto the canvas.
  • Fixed some messed up rendering for IndirectUI effect dialogs (Windows XP).
  • Performance is improved when switching between images that have lots of layers.
  • Aero 'snap' wasn't working when dragging part of the glassy area of the toolbar (Windows 7).
  • Added a new menu item, Window -> Glass Dialog Buttons. You can use this to disable the "glass footers" for dialogs (Windows 7 / Vista).
  • Glass Dialog Buttons are now disabled when font smoothing is disabled.
  • If an e-mail program isn't installed, the error message for Help->Send Feedback is more informative.
  • "Centimeters" was being truncated in the toolbar.
  • The shape tools were not using pixel snapping.
  • Layer names with ampersands were not showing up correctly.
  • Updated the internal list of incompatible and unstable plugins, which are then blocked from loading.
  • Fixed a crash with the Rectangle Select tool if "Fixed Size" mode was used and negative numbers were entered.
  • Fixed an access violation due to a race condition in finalizing effect rendering versus un-write protecting the layer's pixels.
  • Fixed an access violation in the renderer for the background transparency "checkers".
  • Fixed a crash when you would resize a selection to 0-width and/or 0-height, then expand it.
  • Fixed a crash due to an overflow that prevented very large images from working (64-bit only).
  • Fixed a crash with scanning/printing.
  • Fixed the status bar's progress bar showing up and doing nothing for codecs that don't report saving progress, such as JPEG.
  • Fixed a major issue with the readability of the "update is available" dialog in any non-English language.
  • Fixed a crash with the Zoom tool.
  • Fixed some really weird scroll-flickering with the Text tool.
