New Stable Release: Krita 3.3.3
Published 12th January, 2018
Today we’re releasing Krita 3.3.3. This will probably be the last stable release in the Krita 3 series. This release contains several bug fixes and one very important change for Windows users:
- The Direct3d/Angle renderer is now the default for Intel users. Recent updates to the Intel display drivers have broken Krita on many more systems than before, so it’s better that everyone gets this workaround by default. If you experience decreased performance, you can always try to enable OpenGL again.
Other fixes and improvements include:
- Fix an issue where it would not be possible to select certain blending modes when the current layer is grayscale but the image is rgb.
- Set the OS and platform when reporting a bug from within Krita on Windows.
- Make it possible to enter color values as percentage in the specific color selector
- Add OpenGL warnings and make ANGLE default on Intel GPUs
- Add an Invert button to the levels filter
- Implement loading and saving of styles for group layers to and from PSD
- Fix the erase mode not showing correctly when returning to the brush tool
- Save the visibility of individual assistants in .kra files
- Add an option to draw ruler tips as a power of 2
- Disable autoscroll on move and transform tools.
- Improve handling of native mouse events when using a pen and the Windows Ink API
- Fix the focal point for the pinch zoom gesture
- Fix loading netpbm files with comment.
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.

When it is updated, you can also use the Krita Lime PPA to install Krita 3.3.3 on Ubuntu and derivatives. We are working on an updated snap.
Note: the gmic-qt and pdf plugins are not available on OSX.
