Software Update: Paint.NET 4.3.4

Spread the love

Version 4.3.4 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 6. This has greatly improved performance, but it also heralds the end of support for Windows 7 and 8, which will expire from version 4.4. The following improvements have also been made in this release:


  • Compatibility with the Spaced Text plugin, which was crashing
  • A bug with the Color Picker tool, which was sampling from a recently hidden layer when using Image sampling mode
  • The ability to click URLs in some older plugins (CustomBrushesMini, Shape Maker, Vandermotten Effects, and those based on OptionBasedLibrary)
  • The incorrect registration of the app in the HKCR\Applications registry key, which was affecting some methods for launching the app
  • Many translations which had updates but that had inadvertently not been incorporated into the app itself
  • The PROGRAMSGROUP property in the MSI (it was being ignored), which affects custom deployments
  • The CHECKFORUPDATES property which was missing from the MSI. It still worked, but you had to add it yourself. This only affected MSI-based deployment.
