"Tux Paint" alpha version available

It's not exactly a _game_, but I thought I'd announce it here anyway. :)

"Tux Paint" is a simple and fun drawing program gear towards
children (e.g. 10 or younger).

It includes, or will include, a number of tools:

  Paint Brush
  Rubber Stamp
  Line Tool
  "Magic" Tool  (special effects)

It presents a very simple user interface which includes sound effects and
a cartoon version of Tux the Linux Penguin, which helps the user along.

Work begin on June 14th.  Today, June 17th, the 2nd alpha version was
released.  It is far from complete, but shows where the app. is going
(and is quite usable for drawing simple images; it just can't save them yet)


Tux Paint will be released under the GNU General Public License (GPL)
and will most likely be part of the Tux4Kids project ( www.tux4kids.org )

Tux Paint requires the Simple DirectMedia Layer library (libSDL),
as well as SDL_image and SDL_mixer add-on libraries, all of which are
released under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) and available
at http://www.libsdl.org/

Feedback is VERY welcome!
