Pixel image editor has been developed by Pavel Kanzelsberger (Banská Bystrica, Slovakia) since 1997 (current version since 2003 after few rewrites) and is still in heavy development. In 2005, the first release candidates appeared and once all the bugs are fixed, a final release may be ready by end of 2005. Release Candidate 3 is already available to public. Release Candidate 4 will follow in July 2005 by latest, followed by final beta testing in August-December 2005. Final stable product will be released in 2006.
Even if it’s not finished yet, Pixel got few awards.
