this looks like a job for... tomorrow!

Pinta 1.0 Released

After roughly 16 months of development, Pinta is proud to join the ~1% of open source projects that make it to version 1.0!

I am extremely pleased of how Pinta has turned out, and extremely grateful for everyone who sent encouragement, bug reports, patches, and translations.



Some 1.0 Links:
- Release Notes
- Downloads
- Bug Tracker
- Feature Requests

In the next month or so I'll get up a roadmap of where future Pinta development will be going. Hint: Plugins.

Thanks again to everyone who helped make this happen, and here's hoping for another great 16 months of development!

Congratulations! I've been using this program for a while now and it's really neat in-between for xpaint and the GIMP

Congrats!
On a side note, I've been secretly hoping Pinta will eventually join the ~1% of graphics editing program that let you save images as 8-bit PNGs with alpha transparency. So I don't have to rely on Fireworks or command line tools for that. But hey, if someone makes a plugin to add this feature, that's good too.

Made an interesting wallpaper using pinta. Was kind of difficult, since I couldn't modify selections (add or subtract from selection with rectangle, etc., selection tools), and I couldn't change the softness of the eraser, but it turned out alright (if slightly low resolution):

Looks really good if you lower the brightness a bit and increase the saturation to about 4x (in desktop settings on xfce). Unfortunately, the openraster file didn't store all of the layers....
