Krita 4.1.0 Released

Published    6/27/2018

Three months after the release of Krita 4.0, we’re releasing Krita 4.1!

This release includes the following major new features:

 

  • A new reference images tool that replaces the old reference images docker.
  • You can now save and load sessions: the set of images and views on images you were working on
  • You can create multi-monitor workspace layouts
  • An improved workflow for working with animation frames
  • An improved animation timeline display
  • Krita can now handle larger animation by buffering rendered frames to disk
  • The color picker now has a mixing option
  • Improved vanishing point assistant — and assistants can be painted with custom colors
  • Krita’s scripting module can now be built with Python 2
  • The first part of Ivan Yossi’s Google Summer of Code work on improving the performance of brush masks through vectorization is included as well!

And there are a host of bug fixes, of course, and improvements to the rendering performance and more features. Read the full release notes to discover what’s new in Krita 4.1!

Note!

We found a bug where activating the transform tool will cause a crash if you had selected the Box filter previously. if you experience a crash when enabling the transform tool in krita 4.1.0, go to your kritarc file () and remove the line that says “filterId=Box” in the [KisToolTransform] section. Sorry for the inconvenience. We will bring out a bug fix release as soon as possible.
