Most probably not anytime soon. From milestone page there are still a lot of bugs to be solved in this 1.7 release cycle:

If you need this option I suggest you download/install development version. I my humble opinion currently 1.7 development version (I am using it every day) is even more stable then official 1.6 stable.

To install development version on Windows:
1. Uninstall current Pinta version from Windows Add/Remote Application program.
2. Download latest Windows version from: (click on Windows button to download exe file).
2. Install development version the same way as official stable version.

On Linux distributions (tested on Ubuntu 16.04):
1. Download latest zip file from
2. Extract zip archive.
3. From terminal run: mono Pinta.exe
Note: I know this exe file looks like Windows file, but it is not it is Mono file on Linux.
Note: This steps do NOT install Pinta on Linux. Files are just extracted without installation. So there can be no negative influenced on current environment and if you decide to remove development version, you just delete extracted folder. This extracted development version also does NOT effect you current Pinta version. So you can even have both at the same time Pinta 1.6 stable and Pinta 1.7 development (that is the option I have).

On Ubuntu you can also add daily PPA following instructions: but in this case current official stable version gets overridden. In case you want original Pinta 1.6 stable back, you need to purge PPA, uninstall Pinta 1.7 and install Pinta 1.6 back from official repository.
