[openFATE 310830] Pinta project added
Feature changed by: Carlo Strata (carlo_strata)
Feature #310830, revision 4
Title: Pinta project added

openSUSE-11.4: Done
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Jared Meidal (kahu)
Partner organization:

The mono-based graphics editor ought to be integrated with next
OpenSUSE release:
Ubuntu has dropped GIMP integration, which is not what I'm looking for,
but simply support for an additional project that fits a beginning-
intermediate graphic editor user base.

- Mono:Community (obs/project: Mono:Community)

Business case (Partner benefit): Pinta offers an easy and accessible interface for
beginners and tools for intermediate graphic editing. The fact that
this is an attractive and usable application contrasts with GIMP which
has its place but can make novices feel lost and unsure of where to
start. I suggest the OpenSUSE community get behind this project,
develop rpm builds and add it into their 11.4 repositories! We need
more attractive, sleek interfaces which are highly functional and
provide the tools for our audience-- I think we're missing out if we
skip this one.

Packaged in Mono:Community

+ Now Pinta is a standard OpenSuSE package (and also in Mono:Community
+ for versions until 11.4 included), but now (Released November 13th,
+ 2011) has been released version 1.1 as you could see here
+ So it would be very
+ interesting to upgrade to it, to follow its development and to release
+ updates as they are released on their own, if possible. ;-) I am a
+ Gnome user and liker until today I have to install KDE too only to be
+ able to use KolourPaint. Pinta replace it perfectly for me; I used to
+ install Paint.NET to my Windows customer and friend so that I already
+ know Pinta interface... Finally if I'm not in the wrong way, I remember
+ that future Pinta releases would abandon Mono for GTKx libraries.
+ What do you think about this?
