  1. Paint.Net v4.0.17 Released July 20, 2017 This update improves performance and fixes a lot of small issues. As usual, you can download the update directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now. Whats New • 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 (800×600 at 100%, 1600×1200 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 usag • 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) • New: Portable mode can be enabled via a setting in the .exe.config, which will redirect app settings into a local JSON file (see blog/forum post for details) Download: Paint.NET v4.0.17
