Tux Paint is a drawing program for young children, written using
cross-platform, Open Source libraries that allows it to run in

(Linux, Windows, Solaris).

Learn about it, see it, and get it from:


Changes include:

  * Italian translation

  * Dutch translation

  * Updated German translation

  * Support for SDL's upcoming "WMCLASS" support (so it'll play nice under

  * Renamed US Coin stamps' filenames, so that they sort in order of value.
    (Penny, Nickel, etc.)

  * Made a few of the flower stamps 'tintable,' to show off the feature.

  * Better looking cursor in 'Open' dialog.

  * 'Candy-cane' style progress bar displayed when first starting up,
    and while preparing to show thumbnails of saved images.

  * Added details on "*PREFIX" Makefile variables in "INSTALL.txt" docs.
    (Spanish translation of this file needs updating!)

  * And, last but not least, the number one requested feature:
    Support for loading older, BMP-format 'saved' images!

Call for help!

  I'm interested in translating Tux Paint to as many languages as possible.
  I'd especially like help in the non-Latin-character languages like
  Hindi, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc...  I'll need (open source compatible)
  TTF fonts, and help getting the code to work with them.
