NPainter is a suite of classes that provides a MacPaint-like interface, but supporting indexed and true color, across all platforms supported by ZooLib.

A key design feature is that it never touches its hosting environment directly. Instead it simply posts update notifications, and so the hosting environment is free to clip or draw on top of a painting as it is being worked on. This makes it easier to host in environments with tricky constraints, and to achieve effects like multiple views onto different parts of the same painting.
