version 0.2.1 released
     posted by atai, Mon Jan 14 20:12:41 2002 - 0 replies

A new version has been released. It contains minor updates and fixes to the user interface (giant icons now shrinked!)
It also marks the return of active development of gpaint after a year of inactivity. I may soon move directly to the GNOME 2 platform (that seems more productive for my time) but I have not made decision yet.

Next steps will be zooming support and bonoboization.
