30th December 2011
Version 3.40 released

The latest version of mtPaint is now available, and can be DOWNLOADED HERE.

The new features of this version are:

This time, the detailed list in the NEWS file is too long to reproduce here in full. :-)

It was a long wait since the last major release, but this cloud is not without its silver lining, either. :-) With the release versions lagging far behind development, people, and distros, have taken to using dev alpha versions in production. This wider userbase makes this release the most tested one in the history of mtPaint, and for this reason I was able to skip the public-beta stage. But with libraries and toolkits constantly developing exciting new bugs :-) there is no hope of us having caught them all, so if you notice any bugs or glitches, please contact me HERE.

And Happy New Year to you all!


9th September 2009
Git repository created

Christian Oudard created a public git mirror of development version of mtPaint, HERE.
So thanks to his effort, mtPaint development is now not entirely stuck in stone age. :-)

P.S.: I created my own copy of Christian's repository, HERE, which will be used as the project's official repository.


16th April 2009
Version 3.31 released

Version 3.31 has updated Japanese, French and Swedish translations, and several bugfixes.


12th February 2009
Version 3.30 released

Three new translations have been added - Dutch, Italian and Swedish. Several other translations updated, about a dozen bugs fixed, and now mtPaint 3.30 is finally as ready as I could make it. :-) You can download it HERE.


31th December 2008
Version 3.29 released

The latest beta version of mtPaint is now available, and can be DOWNLOADED HERE.

Version 3.29 is a beta version for the final version 3.30, which will be released in a few weeks time. A whole year since 3.20 is a lot of time, but a lot of things were done in that time, too. :-) To name a few - here is long-awaited system clipboard integration ("Edit->Import/Export clipboard"), support for tracing images, image skew transform, and new gradient types, blend modes and effects. As usual, if you spot any bugs or glitches, please contact me HERE.

And Happy New Year to you all!

Here is the latest fragment from the NEWS file:


9th June 2008
Version 3.21 released

Version 3.21 has new Galician and Russian translations, updated Spanish translation, and several small improvements and bugfixes.


28th December 2007
Version 3.20 released

After fixing a dozen small but annoying bugs, now mtPaint 3.20 is ready at last, and can be downloaded HERE.


19th November 2007
Version 3.19 released

The latest beta version of mtPaint is now available, and can be DOWNLOADED HERE.

Version 3.19 is a beta version for the final version 3.20, which will be released in a few weeks time. It was a long time between releases, but not all of it had been wasted. ;-) Among other things, mtPaint had large parts of its low-level image-handling and interface framework rewritten, so if you spot any bugs or glitches, please contact me HERE.

Here is the latest fragment from the NEWS file:


3rd April 2007
Version 3.11 released

Version 3.11 has updated French translation, support for saving and loading LSS16 files, and several other improvements. Also, GTK+1 support is now much better, with many bugs fixed.


22nd January 2007
Version 3.10 released

Interface issues got resolved, a couple of other bugs got fixed, and now version 3.10 of mtPaint is finally ready, and can be downloaded HERE.

There was a change in packaging - now, HTML documentation is included in Linux binary packages, instead of being a separate download. The increased size of these packages is due to that, and not to mtPaint binary suddenly becoming hugely bloated. :-)

Also, due to popular demand, we now provide a .deb package for Ubuntu.


30th December 2006
Version 3.09 released

The latest beta version of mtPaint is now available, and can be DOWNLOADED HERE.

Version 3.09 is a beta version for the final version 3.10, which will be released in a few weeks time. It may exhibit interface glitches in its gradient configuration window under some systems, which problem will be fixed in the final release. If you do have other problems with the program or the handbook, please contact me HERE.

There are improvements in many areas, but the new version is not much larger, and certainly no slower, than before.
Here is the latest fragment from the NEWS file:

25th June 2006
mtPaint is alive and well!

From now on, mtPaint project will be maintained by me, Dmitry Groshev.

Version 3.10 can be expected sometime this autumn. I hope. ;-)


21st June 2006
Version 3.00 released

Sadly I am suspending the mtPaint project with immediate effect. Due to real world issues that I have to face, I do not have the time or the energy to continue. It was a great project, and a lot of fun over the last 2 years, but nothing lasts forever.

I would like to thank all of the people who have helped me with mtPaint, or written to me with feedback, as I have really appreciated their support.

I hope people continue to find mtPaint useful, either as a tool, or maybe a fork.

Best wishes for the future,

Mark.

Version 2.90 released

The latest beta version of mtPaint is now available, and can be DOWNLOADED HERE.

The documentation now exists in a separate HTML form. CLICK HERE for more information.

Version 2.90 is a beta version for the final version 3.00, which will be released in a few weeks time if no major bugs are found. If you do have a problem with the program or the new handbook, please contact me HERE.

There are a lot of changes and additions to the program but it remains small and fast. In fact, thanks to Dmitry's excellent work, many operations are significantly faster and more efficient than before.

31st May 2006
