I've added a basic slideshow feature to Tux Paint!
Here's how it currently works:
1. From the 'Open' dialog, you'll click the "Slides" button at the lower left.
2. A file selection screen, almost identical to the 'Open' dialog, will appear.
3. Click each image you wish to show in your slideshow, one at a time.
4. Digits will appear at the lower right corner of each image's thumbnail,
denoting what order the images will be shown in.
5. A slider on this screen allows you to set the pace of the slideshow
(from 'you have to click to go to the next slide', to slow, through to
6. Click "Play"
During the slideshow, you can use the Space or Enter keys to go to the next
slide manually. Or click the "Next" button at the lower left.
Additionally, you can use the Left and Right arrow keys to go back and forth,
Press Escape, or click the "Back" button at the lower right to return to
the slide selection screen.
This feature can be used for simple slides, and very basic animation.
(Remember that, normally, Tux Paint asks you if you want to make a new
file every time you click Save. Make small adjustments to your picture, and
Save it to a new file each time, and voila! Animation!)
I'm still not sure when Tux Paint 0.9.16 will be released, but hopefully
some time in the next month or so.
In the meantime, the code is available in the CVS repository, so developers
can check it out now and give it a test drive!
