Changes and fixes in 1.9 made since 1.8 (including the new 1.9 features) are listed in some detail in this 1.9.0 Photo Windows update announcement 

 

UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers)

The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in Help > About Affinity Photo).

If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the Affinity Store software it will check for updates and offer any available update. The latest update will install over the top of any earlier version, with no need to uninstall. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "Download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Photo for Windows) can be downloaded from this link. (that installer is NOT for Windows Store purchases and needs a product key).

If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.

Nice job once more. All three apps downloaded and installed in a snap. Login to my account worked like a charm. Thanks again.

Why does this version show 1.9.2.1035 while the latest beta shows 1.9.2.1005?

Many beta builds were internal only 1.9.2.1005 was build almost 3 weeks ago.

Was using Photo 1.9.1. Tried to open a .PDF file via "Open with ..." from Windows Explorer. In the dialog box, I changed from 300dpi to 192dpi, and changed the color space to Greyscale. Photo 1.9.1 would crash - it never opened the file and the UI simply disappeared.

I then upgraded to v1.92 and opened the file from within the app using File/Open, and left the settings as they were in the original file. The file opened, I was able to add the content necessary and export it again.

I then closed Photo, returned to Windows Explorer and repeated the exact steps described above to see if 1.9.2 still crashes. I'm pleased to report that it does not.

So ... if users have reported opening PDFs caused 1.9.1or earlier to crash, they seem to have been fixed in this new version.
