paint.net 4.2.16 beta build 7772

Hot on the heels of 4.2.16 beta build 7765, this build fixes a new issue when saving images at 8-bit color depth if they have transparency (as reported here and in a few other posts: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/118074-autodetect-bit-depth-on-saving-png-files-fails-on-beta-4216776543041/)

To get this update, make sure you have "Also check for pre-release (beta) versions" enabled in Settings, and then click on the Check Now button. (Unfortunately alpha/beta releases are not currently available for the Microsoft Store version of the app).

    Addressing the issue of file saving… Any change to see a quick Export As… option? If you save a layered image as PNG or JPEG, PDN will flatten it, and you have to undo that step to continue your work on the layered original, which is a little clumsy for an application I value for its (outstanding) speed and ease-of-use.
