Paint.NET 3.5 build 3450 alpha

Posted on Sunday, June 14 2009 @ 18:21:02 CEST by

Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for computers that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plugins.

* Completely rewritten font and text rendering system for the Text tool that no longer uses GDI+ for anything in favor of GDI (font discovery, or text rendering).
* This has the consequence of improved stability (no more crashes with bad fonts), improved startup performance (about 10% on average, although the more fonts you have the better improvement you will see), and no more 'missing' fonts (all fonts should now appear in the font list)
* New feature: Paint.NET will now update its font list when you install/delete fonts. Previous versions required a restart of the application.
* New feature: Utilities -> Folders -> System Fonts. Now if someone asks, "how do I install a font?" just point them to that.
* Temporary missing feature: There is no choice between 'Smooth' and 'Sharp' for the Text tool.
* Known issue: Antialiasing is not enabled at small font sizes. This is just the way that GDI does things, and should be fixed when FreeType support is added (GDI will be used for 'sharp', and Freetype for 'smooth'). (And in fact, this is the same as how v3.36 operates for 'Sharp' text rendering -- small font sizes results in aliased text.)
