Tux Paint 0.9.25 released; adds animated GIF export

The Tux Paint development team is happy to announce Tux Paint version 0.9.25, the latest release of the popular and award-winning drawing program for children.

A major improvement has been made to the Shapes tool, which now provides options to choose whether shapes are drawn from the center or a corner, making it easier to use in any situation.

The on-screen keyboard, an accessibility feature optionally available when using the Text and Label tools, now appears larger on bigger displays; helpful for users of coarser input devices, such as eye-tracking systems.

The Eraser tool adds new, smaller eraser sizes, and applies smoother, contiguous strokes when the pointer is moved quickly.

Finally, this newest version adds options to export individual drawings and GIF animations, making it easy to share pictures, cartoons, and slideshows with others.

Version 0.9.25 is currently available as RPMs for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, 7, and 8, as well as Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, Android, and Haiku operating systems.
