Pinta: Nil Dot Duo

I am extremely excited to announce the release of Pinta 0.2!

Pinta 0.2 is a big step towards general feature parity with PDN, by adding great new features like:

- 5 new tools (Paint Bucket, Recolor, Line, Zoom, Pan)
- 5 new adjustments (Levels, Curves, Brightness/Contrast, Hue/Saturation, Posterize)
- 5 new effects (Ink Sketch, Oil Painting, Pencil Sketch, Gaussian Blur, Glow)
- Enhanced layer and history pads
- Multithreaded adjustments/effects rendering
- Basic OS X integration
- and more!

Full release notes (with pictures!) are available here.

Packages are available here, and likely more will be contributed.

The most exciting part about this release is that it isn't all my work. Pinta has attracted several great contributors who are helping it quickly move towards maturity. Without their awesome work, Pinta would be releasing today with only about half of these new features!

With 0.2 out the door, now I can turn to the merge requests already waiting to make 0.3 an even better release!

This looks really interesting, and you seem to be moving quite fast. Are you building GPU acceleration into this from the beginning?

on next release, you will be able to write "dog is watching" with the text tool ;-)

@dlai:

No, there is currently no GPU acceleration in Pinta. I do not know if an open, cross-platform solution for doing work on the GPU currently exists.

Might I suggest OpenTK (bindings to OpenCL)?
