This release features several bug fixes, feature improvements, and new brushes and magic tools. The full release notes are available here: http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=555833&group_id=66938

Note: This version is built for PowerPC Macs. We are in search of a volunteer to help us build the libraries required for a universal version of Tux Paint. The volunteer must be running Mac OS X 10.4.x on an Intel Mac, have an administrator account, be unafraid to use the Terminal (though we will provide all the instructions to build the libraries), and have installed (or be willing to install) Apple's Developer Tools.

Version 0.9.17 | Release Date: 2007-07-04 | Download

Tux Paint 0.9.17 offers many exciting innovations alongside improvements to favorite features, including new stamps, new brushes for the Paint and Line tools, and support for a wider variety of screen resolutions and orientations - great for use with wide-screen LCD monitors and tablet PCs.

Tux Paint's well-loved Stamp tool is now cleaner, more flexible, and easier to use than ever. The addition of a smoothing filter minimizes pixelation when photographic stamps are scaled up, while newly added support for the Scalable Vector Graphics file format allows for byte-thrifty stamps that can scale up without any pixelation or blurring at all. Lastly, the constantly growing collection of stamps is now separated into categories (plants, animals, holidays, and so forth) for easier navigation.

Also, Tux Paint 0.9.17 proudly debuts the new Input Method feature, which allows users to input non-Latin characters with the Text tool. Currently, supported languages include Japanese (both Romanized Hiragana and Romanized Katakana) and Korean (the common Hangul 2-Bul method).

And as always, Tux Paint continues to learn new languages thanks to its global community of developers. Tux Paint 0.9.17 now supports more than 70 languages, with new translations into Latvian, Telugu, and Twi, in addition to updates in more than a dozen others.

Version 0.9.16 | Release Date: 2006-10-20 | Download

Tux Paint 0.9.16 debuts exciting new features alongside a number of improvements to old favorites. A new simple-to-use Slideshow feature allows you to select your favorite works of art and play them back at various speeds. Slideshow will help teachers and students create classroom presentations, and can even be used to make simple flip-book style animations.

Tux Paint's paintbrush tool premieres two new additions. A brand new animated brush feature cycles through a sequence of images, covering your canvas in a trail of footprints or skittering squirrels. Also, new directional brushes which change shape depending on which direction you draw, allow for more natural-looking strokes.

Version 0.9.16 also boasts a number of minor improvements over previous Tux Paint releases, including stereo sound effects, round erasers, improved "magic" tools, new "Starter" images, improved international character support in the "Text" tool, expanded user documentation, the option to create alternative color palettes, and numerous bug fixes. Developers will also enjoy improved code modularity and portability.

Thanks to its global community of developers, Tux Paint 0.9.16 includes translations into Arabic, Faroese, Gujarati, Scottish Gaelic, Ndebele, Tagalog, Tibetan, Venda, Xhosa and South African English, bringing the total number of supported languages to 69.
