This is a small update that fixes a few bugs and updates the bundled AVIF and WebP file type plugins.
NOTE for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and 32-bit/x86 users: Paint.NET v4.3.x will be the last release(s) that work on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or on any 32-bit/x86 version of Windows. It has become significantly more difficult and time consuming to support these lately, not very many people are using them, and I can no longer justify the cost and frustration of keeping support for these afloat. Starting with Paint.NET v4.4, only Windows 10 and 11+ will be supported, and only on 64-bit (x64 and ARM64). Updates for 4.3.x will be released on an as-needed basis until v4.4 is completed.

Changes since v4.3.11:
- Fixed a bug when using Crop to Selection where the image would scroll away to the corner
- Fixed a rendering bug in the brush tools that would cause some sections of the brush stroke to be rendered twice, making them darker
- Added the PdnBaseForm.IsAppThemeDark property so that plugins with custom UI can more easily be dark theme aware
- Fixed a rare crash in the rendering engine due to a race condition
- Fixed a crash when using multiple monitors plugged into multiple GPUs from different manufacturers (e.g. AMD vs. NVIDIA), while moving the window between monitors (NotCurrentlyAvailableException)
