4.0.15 is now available

This is a hotfix that fixes a crash in the Magic Wand tool.

As usual, you can download the update directly from the website, or you can use the built-in updater via Settings –> Updates –> Check Now.

The only change since 4.0.14, which you can read about here, is this:

  • Fixed a crash in the Magic Wand tool if it was used twice in a row with a selection mode other than Replace.

Technically, it’s not "twice in a row" that causes the crash. It’s actually just using the Magic Wand tool, with a selection mode other than Replace, on any selection that is "pixelated". There are two common sources of pixelated selections: the Magic Wand tool, and the Rectangle Select tool. "Pixelated" selections are comprised solely of straight horizontal or vertical segments whose endpoints are at integer coordinates. This distinction is important because there are some great optimizations you can take advantage of when the data fits into this limitation. Sadly, one of my optimizations fell over in 4.0.14.

*phew*! Enjoy 🙂

      There is some kind of bug with Microsoft Edge and Copy-ing images from it. When pasting into Paint.NET, there is memory corruption that causes this crash. I’m investigating it … it’s pretty high priority! 😦

    Huge fan of, always happy to see an update.
    Hope this question isn’t a bother, but is pressure sensitivity still a planned feature for the future?
