    The default desktop has a large team of active developers. Some hired by Canonical.

      The plan is to package 2.0:
      It should be in unstable soon (and testing shortly thereafter) if all goes well.

      The Debian version seem stale.
      Recently, the 1.2.x mypaint package was removed from testing because of changes with python2 packages
      Rather than trying to slap band-aids on the 1.2.x package, the maintainer has chosen to wait for the release of mypaint 2.0 and libmypaint2.

      Debian stable has 1.2.0 (plus important fixes from 1.2.1)

      I'm not sure how you could call that stale unless you either don't understand how Debian works or are being extremely impatient with the packaging of 2.0

        I also miss Banshee. Seems like C# is a death sentence for projects not affiliated to Microsoft.
        I like C# a lot, it is a great language on a great platform.
        It requires a runtime to be installed though. Microsoft is investing a lot into it and Mono keeps developing. So it is rather well supported on Linux.
        Mono is a Linux implementation of the .NET Framework, but now there is .NET Core which is the new generation of .NET Framework that replaces the legacy .NET Framework so applications that target Mono and .NET Framework should get ported to .NET Core which is cross-platform.

        Pinta seems to be almost dead, I saw on GitHub that it still have commits, but only very few.

          There is one under 'About'. ;-)

I kinda wish it was still a viable option for a large project cause it'd be awesome to put my C# knowledge to use
            If that would be true for a good amount of people we would have many or at least some really great mono apps. Most people that decided to get a proprietary software windows only focused job will either not want to participate on the linux community or are not able to write good programs.

            I also don't think that C# knowledge is not very useful knowledge, python even in Windows now dominates all other languages so the benefit to support this stupid language is not worth the effort. It's also no "good" language it's pretty garbage I don't think that python is a good language but c# is even worse.

                TBH, Gimp doesn't either, but at least their page reflects what it is about:
                Neither has Krita. And Photshop's page only has bits of the overall window, as well as pictures of the mobile version.

                  How does it compare to Kolourpaint?

                    It is compared to Krita (more on this like digital painting) and maybe GIMP.
                    E.g. GIMP need the mypaint libs (libmypaint-1.4.0) and Inkscape need the GIMP extensions for it (inkscape-extensions-gimp).
