Announcing Tux Paint 0.9.23

Open Source drawing software for children receives a minor update

Tux Paint 0.9.23's new color picker

(Olympia, WA, USA — September 2, 2018) The Tux Paint development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Tux Paint version 0.9.23, the latest release of their award-winning, free drawing program for children.

Initially released for the Linux operating system in 2002, and soon becoming available for Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS (previously Mac OS X), and other platforms, Tux Paint has become a staple at countless homes and schools around the globe.

New in this version are a "color picker", which allows any color within a drawing to be chosen using the pointer, and a set of three-, four-, and five-pointed star shapes.

The latest version also incorporates a number of new translations, bringing the number of supported languages up to nearly 130: Bengali, Bodo, Dogri, Kabyle, Urdu, and Devanagari and Perso-Arabic variations of Kashmiri and Sindhi. Thirty other translations have been updated, as well.

The previous version, 0.9.22, was inoperable on OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) and later. This new release addresses compatibility problems, and should work with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and macOS 10.13 (High Sierra). Users running Mac OS X 10.6 or earlier should continue using Tux Paint 0.9.22.

Tux Paint is available for download free of charge from the project's website at www.tuxpaint.org.

Version 0.9.23 is currently available for Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, RedHat Linux, and as source-code.
