Paint.Net v4.1.6 Released
March 18, 2019

Whats New
  • New: Completely redone high-res icons throughout the app which match the Microsoft Office style guidelines, with native support for up to 400% scaling (384 DPI)
  • New: File -> Save All (thanks [plain]@Bruce[/plain] Bowyer-Smyth!)
  • New: Turkish language
  • New: Move Layer commands are now present in the Layers menu, not just on the Layers window
  • New: Layers -> Rotate 180 (thanks @null54!)
  • New: Plugins can now use the UIScaleFactor class, which simplifies making decisions about DPI and scaling
  • Improved: Image thumbnail list at the top of the main window now reacts to horizontal mouse wheel or trackpad swiping
  • Improved: The Text Tool's "Font Size Metric" button now has a tooltip explaining it
  • Improved: When many images are open, Paint.NET now closes significantly faster (thanks [USER=11162]@bruce[/USER] Bowyer-Smyth for the fix!)
  • Improved: File -> Open Recent now has up to 10 images (up from 8 )
  • Changed: Ctrl+Shift+F6 and +F7 will now also reset the floating window sizes for History and Layers, respectively (same if you Ctrl+Shift+Click on the button at the top-right of the main window)
  • Changed: (for plugins) EffectFlags.SingleRenderCall is deprecated. Plugins should use the new EffectRenderingSchedule.None option instead.
  • Changed: Settings -> Plugin Errors now shows up even if there are no plugin errors. This ensures consistency, especially with the newly asynchronous nature of plugin loading (otherwise there's no way to distinguish "no errors" from "not done loading plugins").
  • Fixed: Items in the File -> Open Recent menu will no longer get bigger or smaller when moving between monitors with different DPIs
  • Fixed: An icon handle was being leaked every time a dialog was opened (thanks @null54 for the fix!)
  • Fixed a crash when running GPU effects (e.g. Black & White) on very large, very tall images
  • Fixed: "Bad" plugins can no longer ruin the undo system by rendering outside of the selection (thanks @BoltBait for helping out with this!)

    Bug Fixes
    • Fix: In some systems the Initial Setup and Software Uninstaller may freeze during scanning.

    Notepad++ vv7.6.4
    06 Mar 2019 14:33:00


    When you install Notepad++ version 7.6.4, You might notice there's no more blue-trusted UAC popup. Here's the explanation for the reason that we remove code signing from Notepad++ :

    3 years ago DigiCert donated a 3 years code signing certificate to the project, and every good thing has its end, the certificate has been expired since the beginning of this year.



    Whats New
    • Add Markdown in zip packages and fix Markdown not working in installer package of v7.6.3.
    • Switch from certificate verification to hashes verification due to "Notepad++" is rejected by certification authority.
    • Enhance User Defined Language System for supporting more than one UDL file. Here is new behaviour.
    • Add "Remove Consecutive Duplicate Lines" feature to remove duplicate consecutive lines from whole document.
    • Add new shortcut "shift + scroll" for horizontal scrolling.
    • Add Stack Overflow as search engine.
    • Add the capacity to rename non-existing document's tab.
    • Fixed file open hang issue in old style mode.
    • Fix "Find in files" tab translation issue on initial dialog call.
    playable before playing to avoid exploit in hacking. (EURO-FOSSA)
    • Enhance "Search on Internet" command to avoid command hijacked. (EURO-FOSSA)•Fix buffer overrun in Print dialog. (EURO-FOSSA)
    • Load nppPluginList.dll as resource instead of binary for the sake of security. (EURO-FOSSA)
    • Check Updater's authenticity before its each launch to prevent from hijacking. (EURO-FOSSA)
    • Fix stack buffer overflow in WordStyle dialog. (EURO-FOSSA)

    Loving the icon and banner you made for me so much! Wanted to ask if you could make an adjustment sometime, no rush at all. If you wouldn't mind could you alter the icon to have a Max Headroom feel? Thinking a Max Headroom like background but do feel free to dabble. Also, would it be possible to make the banner larger? Thanks!

    "Doubling" the image size would bring it to 640x40 pixels - border to border.

    Question:
    What is the "final" image size border to border including background?

    GumP can you select a background and upload here.
    Do you want the black holding line that frames the image eliminated when dropped into background image?

    Edit to add: How is the final image to be used?
    Online (lower resolution) or print (higher resolution)?
    If it's to be used for online and print production I'll supply a separate image for each application.

    Get back to me please... Gordon
