New Improvements


Docking

As previously covered in a blog post, the most noticeable change is Pinta has picked up the excellent pad docking library used in MonoDevelop.

This allows you to show, hide, move, resize, and undock the various pads into the configuration that fits your work style best.

Translations

Pinta is now fully translatable, and ships with at least partial support for 18 languages.

If you'd like to translate Pinta, you can easily help through the web-based translation interface hosted on Launchpad.

Smaller Enhancements

Support for many more file formats, like gif, tiff, bmp. [Jonathan Pobst]
Support for the OpenRaster format, an open standard that stores layers, and is compatible with other OSS software, like Krita and MyPaint. [Maia Kozheva]
Font preview for text tool. [Hanh Pham]
Autotools based build system. [Joe Hillenbrand, Maia Kozheva]
Better GNOME integration: toolbar respects GNOME size, Open/Save dialogs remember their last location, and will default to Pictures directory. [Maia Kozheva]
