Three months after the release of Krita 4.0, we’re releasing Krita 4.1!
This release includes the following major new features:
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!
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 (https://docs.krita.org/en/KritaFAQ.html#where-are-the-configuration-files-stored …) 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.
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.
