Milton
A minimalist painting tool

Milton is a minimalist painting tool.

The program looks very basic, at least initially. Set a brush size and opacity (not type, it's always round), choose a colour and paint, undo or switch to the eraser if you've made a mistake.

And that's it on the drawing side. There's no Fill tool, no lines or geometric shapes, it's all extremely simple.

Milton does have some tricks, though. Like, this is vector painting, not bitmap, so you can freely zoom in or out almost infinitely to add fine detail, or get the big picture.

There's no fixed-size canvas, either. Need more space in a particular area? Click the mouse wheel and drag to move the canvas. The rest of your painting isn't cropped, so you can zoom out again to view it all.

Milton has simple layer support, too. It automatically saves your work, complete with undo history, whenever you close the program. And when you're done, any or all of your creation may be freely exported to a PNG or JPG.

What's new (Changelog)

Fixed Wacom issues. Rewrote the DPI scaling code.

Verdict:

Milton doesn't have the bitmap editing or drawing tools you often see in painting software, but this keeps it easy-to-use, and the vector approach, infinite canvas and layer support are all major pluses. Worth a try if you don't need the usual editing tools and just want to paint.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
