Krita 3.1 Release Candidate

Published    30th November, 2016

Due to illness, a week later than planned, we are still happy to release today the first release candidate for Krita 3.1. There are a number of important bug fixes, and we intend to fix a number of other bugs still in time for the final release.

  • Fix a crash when saving a document that has a vector layer to anything but the native format (regression in beta 3)
  • Fix exporting images using the commandline on Linux
  • Update the OSX QuickLook plugin to use the right thumbnail sizes
  • Improved zoom menu icons
  • Unify colors on all svg icons
  • Fix tilt-elevation brushes to work properly on a rotated or mirrored canvas
  • Improve drawing with the stabilizer enabled
  • Fix isotropic spacing when painting on a mirrored canvas
  • Fix a race condition when saving
  • Fix multi-window usage: the tool options palette would only be available the last openend window, now it’s available everywhere.
  • Fix a number memory leaks
  • Fix selecting the saving location for rendering animations (there are still several bugs in that plugin, though — we’re on it!)
  • Improve rendering speed of the popup color selector

You can find out more about what is going to be new in Krita 3.1 in the release notes. The release notes aren’t finished yet, but take a sneak peek all the same!


Note for Windows users: if you encounter crashes, please follow these instructions to use the debug symbols so we can figure out where Krita crashes.


A snap image for the Ubuntu App Store is available in the beta channel.
