Tux Paint's paint and line tools now accept brushes that rotate depending on the angle of travel. In addition, the Fill tool now offers a hands-free painting mode for interactive coloring in a small area.
Six new Magic tools have been added to Tux Paint. The panels shrink and double the design into a 2 by 2 grid, which is useful for making four-panel comics. The opposite produces complementary colors. Lightning interactively draws lightning. The reflection creates a lake-like reflection on the drawing. Stretch stretches and crushes the image like a mirror of fun. Finally, Smooth Rainbow offers a more gradual variation of the classic Rainbow instrument from Tux Paint.
A number of existing Magic tools have also been updated. Improvements have been made to Halftone, which simulates photos on newsprint; Cartoon, which makes an image look like a cartoon; and TV, which simulates a TV screen. In addition, Cartoon and Halftone, along with Blocks, Chalk and Emboss, now offer the ability to edit the entire image simultaneously.
Finally, Magic tools are now grouped into collections of similar effects - painting, distortion, color filters, image distortion, pattern painting, artistic and pictorial decorations - making it easier to find the tool you need.
Tux Paint user documentation has been updated. The documentation for the various program settings has been reorganized, and the instructions for manually compiling and installing Tux Paint from the source code have been extended. Also, the manual page provided for Unix and Unix-like systems now accepts localization.
A new gallery. The Tux Paint website now hosts a new gallery featuring fantastic artwork created by Tux Paint artists of all ages. The gallery features over 200 drawings by artists from around the world over the past 20 years.
Tux Paint is available for free download. Version 0.9.27 is currently available for Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, Android, Red Hat Linux, various Linux distributions (via Flatpak) as well as source code.
