Software Update: Paint.NET 4.3.1

Version 4.3.1 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. Version 4.3 includes the switch to .Net 5, there is an Arm64 build and performance has been significantly improved. The following improvements have also been made in this update:

Changes since 4.3:

  • Fixed an issue with using Explorer’s “Open With” menu on Windows 7, 8.1, and some editions of Windows 10
  • Fixed image thumbnails in Explorer’s Details View only having a generic document icon instead of the Paint.NET icon
  • Fixed a spurious, harmless error in Settings -> Plugin Errors
  • Fixed a race condition that could cause a crash
  • Fixed not being able to use Ctrl+C to copy text from the Setup Downloader, which is especially important for troubleshooting
