Latest stable release.

Releases and prereleases contain links to standalone packages (and installers for full releases) for Windows, and AppImage files for Linux.

Nightly releases

Using alpha releases comes with its own risks. Sometimes bugs can sneak in that causes crashes, so don't be too surprised by that. If you come across any, please do report those bugs so they can be dealt with.


If you don't want to build from source, the latest AppImage files can be found in a rolling release. Just download the .AppImage file and make it executable.


The nightly installers and standalone archives can be downloaded from the AppVeyor CI

Click on the link matching your architecture (32 or 64), then the tab named "Artifacts" to get the file list. Only one of the files ending in .exe or .7z are needed. Using the standalone archive (7z) is recommended.

Windows Package Manager (winget)

The latest stable release is available to install via winget, the Windows Package Manager. To search for the package, run:

winget search MyPaint

and to install, run:

winget install --id MyPaint.MyPaint

The winget package is not maintained by the dev team.

Chocolatey (windows)

If you prefer to use the Chocolatey repository, both stable releases and pre-releases can be found there.


MyPaint depends on its brushstroke rendering library, libmypaint, as well as its brush library mypaint-brushes. If you have those installed, plus MyPaint's third party dependencies, you can try it out without installing:

git clone
cd mypaint
python demo

If the demo works, you can install

python managed_install
python managed_uninstall

For more details, see the Setup Instructions.
