Linux (1-11), a new beta was made available today ('0.9.21-beta3').
It can be downloaded from:
As mentioned in my previous e-mail about the Windows beta build,
some highlights (which means things that need extra attention by
* savedir and datadir options can now accept "$" variables (e.g., "$HOME")
and "~" (shortcut for $HOME) in directory name paths.
* Error pop-up appears when Tux Paint fails to talk to a printing backend
* Print-out should be scaled better.
* Improved .desktop file.
* New and enhanced Magic tools
- Blur (entire image)
- Color and White
- Color shift
- Darken (entire image)
- Glass Tile (entire image)
- Lighten (entire image)
- Negative (entire image)
- Real Rainbow
- Snow Ball
- Snow Flakes
- String Edges / Corner / 'V'
- Tint (entire image)
* Starter images no longer need transparency. You can use a 'flat', 100%
opaque image, and white will be used as the drawing zone in the picture.
* Text Tool now works with right-to-left languages (Hebrew, Arabic),
including mixing with left-to-right languages (e.g., English).
* Pop-up dialogs (e.g., "Are you sure you want to quit?") look and act
better when in a right-to-left locale (Hebrew or Arabic).
* Font scoring improvements to help make the most useful fonts for your locale
appear at the top of the Fonts list in the Text tool.
* Shushwap and Songhay locales now supported.
And to all of you out there who are interested in Tux Paint running in
your language, please try it out and make sure things work and look ok!
(And if you have any translation updates you'd like to send, send them soon
so I can get them into the 0.9.21 release!)
