    This is really GREAT, fantastic! Finally we see a beginning of the very very old TVPaint replacement which I find very important.

    Thanks very much Yomgui!

    @Bifford:

    More information (current state):

    - it's a paint program for artists :-D.
    - it's coded in MUI+Python (my PyMUI module) for UI and C for low-level drawing routines.
    - it's designed for pressure sensitive devices, even if it works with a classical mouse, but pressure is fixed for this last.
    - Not size-limited drawing surface.
    - Non limited undo/redo.
    - Non limited layers.
    - Multiple documents.
    - True RGB documents (working with internal 15bits pixels buffers).
    - Loading in all formats supported by PIL (Python Imaging Library) as JPEG, PNG and OpenRaster (.ora).
    - Saving in PNG and OpenRaster.
    - Supported Palette file formats: .pal (internal) and .aco (Adobe Photoshop Color File Format).
    - Fully customizable brushes with integrated manager.
    - Line/Ellipse guide tools.
    - Easy tools and color historic access as document overlay widgets.
    - Independant layer transform matrix (rotation/translation supported).
    - Per document view matrix (rotation/scale/translation).
    - All inputs (keyboards, tablet tools) are fully customizable.

    And note as it'll be a beta release, some features (more or less ready in code but finalisations needed, like viewport split, color management, CMYK documents, ...) missings but are planned for the 3.x serie.

    The alpha version currently tested by two experimented graphists (big thanks to them!) is in frozen stage, before the beta packaging process.
    I'm looking for tweak some parts and when I feel that GB3 is ready for public delivery... you know :-D
    And now... next project!

    Sweet! :)

    Now I'm no artist, but every now and then I like to dabble.... so this sounds very much like it will be worth a try.

    Is it paint on/paint of like Photogenics? As I really liked the way that works.

    Keep up the great work! New programs for MOS/Amiga's are always needed, and this brings the miggy right back to its roots!! Now where's Andy Warhol when you need him.....??? :D :D

    Just did a first quick test with GB3 - looks nice and works. But there is one thing that I stronly dislike: The document window popping to front by just single clicking into that window. That's not fittimg to the usual MorphOS window handling. I know that it may make some sense to bring the document window to front, but please, please, please make this behaviour optional and make a default mode as it is usually on MorphOS. As it is now it feels alienesque ;-) .

    @Zylesea:
    thx for the report, issue accepted.
    I've removed this feature, now the user decide by changing IControl preferences.
    And now... next project!
