Graphics, User Interfaces "GIMP 2.8 has been talked about for more than a year and back in January there was a GIMP 2.8 release schedule by Martin Nordholts that had set the final release for the 27th of December. That date has now passed and, sadly, this major update to this leading open-source graphics program is still not close to being released."

If you want a simple Paint.NET-like tool for Linux, just use Pinta. Nobody's forcing you to use GIMP, you know ;) And Krita will probably not help you: it's a painting app now.


Pinta is NOT a paining app? Since when?

Yep, it is a painting app. It has low aims (it aims to be simple), yet it ends up being simplistic.

It is still in early development.

As a painting application, pinta isn't a patch on Krita.

PS: Even worse, Pinta requires Mono.
