In this last version, you will get:
  • Floating tool windows can now be docked into a sidebar inside the main window.
  • In the brushstrokes tool, a “Lock Alpha” mode has been added and there are now some basic layer compositing modes.
  • A new configurable toolbar with dropdown widget for colour, brush settings, and brush.
  • Improvement in speed, user interface, and new brush collections have been added.

Here’s how to install:
Open Terminal, and type in the commands below:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:achadwick/mypaint-testing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mypaint

Unfortunately, the only PPA you can use to install the latest MyPaint is the MyPaint development PPA. For addition information, this isn't a stable PPA and may be can make MyPaint stop working after an update if a bug gets through.

For Windows OS users and other Linux distro, please see the MyPaint download page.
