(Olympia, WA, USA — May 31, 2020) The Tux Paint development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Tux Paint version 0.9.24, the latest release of their award-winning, free drawing program for children.

Tux Paint, available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, and translated into nearly 130 languages, has been a staple at schools and homes around the world for the past 18 years.

The latest version has promoted the "Fill" tool, previously found under the "Magic" section of Tux Paint, to the main toolbar, where it's easier to find. It also includes some performance improvements during start-up and when bringing up the "New" drawing dialog. The solid background colors can also be placed at the end of that dialog, allowing emphasis of template images.

Tux Paint also now makes it possible to disable stereo sound, which can benefit users with a hearing impairment, or in situations where only one speaker is available.

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

Version 0.9.24 is currently available for Apple macOS, Android, Microsoft Windows, RedHat Linux, and as source-code.

For a complete list of changes, see the Tux Paint change log, Tux Paint Config. change log, and Tux Paint Stamps change log.
