Software Update: Paint.NET 4.2.10

Version 4.2.10 of Paint.NET has been released. This drawing and image editing program bridges the gap between the Paint supplied with Windows and expensive but very extensive programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Corel Photo Paint. Today, the program is also offered via the Windows Store offered, although a small fee is charged for that version. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

Changes since 4.2.9:

  • Fixed: Installations that directly use the MSI (eg AD/GPO deployments) no longer need to run the repair process immediately after installation. Some important DLLs were not being updated because while their assembly version was different, their file version was unchanged, so Windows Installer incorrectly skipped over them.

  • Fixed: Loading an image with an enormous photoshop:DocumentAncestors node in the XMP metadata will no longer hang the app
  • Fixed a rare crash in the auto-updater UI related to font initialization
  • Improved performance when clicking OK on an effect or adjustment dialog that has already completed part of its rendering
