Development Contracting

Halla Rempt Software has worked with several companies and studios to develop features and improvements to Krita. This is a commercial service, and we do not take feature requests or suggestions without signing a contract.

Contact hallarempt (at) gmail (dot) com for more information. THIS IS NOT A USER SUPPORT ADDRESS.


Updates and product roadmap

We frequently post development updates and status reports on our homepage. The priority for 2018 was releasing Krita 4.0 with improved vector and text tools, python scripting, and performance improvements. For the remaining of 2018 and 2019 we’ll be focusing on stability, polish and performance. In 2020 we hope to get back to adding more features with brush engines and community voted on features.

If you want to be notified when new releases come out you can sign up for our release mailing list. The mailing list only sends out an email when final builds are done. If you want to see early builds, you will need to catch the news.

Having issues with donating?

Krita is located in the Netherlands. You might have to contact your bank before a payment can go through. For the USA, you might have to put a "travel notice" in for the Netherlands for this to work.

If you continue having issues, please contact us so we can learn more about your issue.

Large Donations

If you are in the EU, or if you want to donate larger sums, it will usually be best to use a direct bank transfer, to avoid Paypal’s fees. For questions, contact
