April Development Update
With near infinite difficulty we managed to release Krita 4.2.9 in the last week of March… So now it’s time to look ahead! All Krita developers work from home anyway, whether they do sponsored work or are volunteers, but it’s quite hard to keep focus these days. Several of us are in quarantine, others are […]

Krita in 2019 and 2020
2019 Let’s have some statistics first! Statistics are fun! (And notoriously unreliable) We started 2019 with about 450 open bugs — and that’s how we ended 2019. That said, we had 1236 new bug reports and closed 1272. Still, our 2018 fund raiser was all about getting rid of bugs, and that seems to be […]

Introducing krita-artists.org
Freshly returned from the 2019 Blender Conference, Krita project maintainer Boudewijn Rempt was heard to wistfully wish for something like Blender Artists, only for Krita. A central place for artists who use Krita to discuss their work, ask for help, share experiences and reach out to developers. And in the interest of growing the community, […]

September Development Update
We’re about to do another bug-fix release of Krita: that’ll be 4.2.7. We’re seeing that the number of new bug reports is dropping a bit, week over week: even though most bug reports can be closed instantly as duplicates or not bugs at all, that’s probably a sign that our stable releases are getting more […]

Help Beta Test Krita 4.2.6!
This will be the first Krita release since the big sprint. We’re aiming to do monthly bugfix releases again from now on! But we also want to cut down on the regressions that come with rapid development so we’re making beta releases again. Please help the team out and check these beta releases for bugs […]

The sprinters, artists, contributors and artists/contributors, all together. Monday On Monday, people started arriving. It was pretty great to meet again so many people who […]

The Inside View: How Krita is Developed
In this post, I want to share with you how we’re developing Krita. Of course, the post’s title is already nonsense, since there’s no “inside” and “outside” when it comes to Krita. Krita is a free software project, and as open as it can be. If you use Krita, report issues, help people who are […]
