or (Windows, Mac, Ubuntu, BSd.. etc)
Preview version (pre-release) 1.7x
Current version 1.6.3...
Maintainer is Cameron White (Canonical)
I recently received responses (March 2017) to crashes & bugs in the program from him and was able to resolve several issues!
Yes, it is being actively developed.
NO, it is not a drop-in replacement for (Windows version) NOR claim to be a GIMP replacement. It does have layering, which simpler paint type programs lack, but is not as full-featured as either GIMP or, and not all features work in all versions (which is why it is still under development for improvements!)

update 2019:
pinta 1.6+git1798-936d6aa6-1ppa1~xenial1 Alexander Pozdnyakov (2019-03-31)
Also, for Ubuntu:
(current stable release) Pinta trunk series
1.6-2 release (universe) 2018-10-30
Still maintained, not discontinued, I don't know why it is listed that way STILL.
There are a lot of open bugs, but it's still being worked on, and 1.7 should be out within the next few (five to ten) years, so definitely not a discontinued project.

It is great and simple Application I try it on centos 7 and on Ubuntu 16.04 without any problems.
