Krita 4.2.5 Released
Published 2nd August, 2019
We found that Krita 4.2.4 still had a bug handling shortcuts when certain tools were active. We’ve worked hard to fix that bug as quickly as possible, and as a consequence, we’re releasing Krita 4.2.5 today. Everyone is urged to update to this new release.
- Fix an assert in the transform tool when working with a tablet and touch
- Fix continued transformation in the transform tool
- Fix updates in the transform tool
- Show the publication time in the welcome page news ticker in the user’s preferred short date/time format
- Fix using the tangent-normal brush when the canvas is rotated or mirrored (BUG:404408)
- Make it possible again to create new palettes and save them in the resource folder, instead of the current document (BUG:410137)
- Make Krita not gobble up all available memory when loading a JPG file with specific metadata (BUG:410242)
- Constrain assistant editors to the viewport, so they can always be manipulated
- Make sure Krita stores changes to brush presets in the current session by default (BUG:410463)
- Remove an assert that could be triggered when opening the first image in a session
- Update the version of the default input settings profile, so the rotate/zoom action will be activated even if the user already had a local kritadefault.profile file
- Fix a crash on using the move tool while the image is being opened (BUG:398968)
- Make sure the painting tools don’t block anymore (BUG:409968,408826,409275)
- Make the shortcut handling system more tolerant when shortcuts overlap (BUG:409968)
- Fix a crash in the transform tool
- Make the transform tool and the move tool more responsive
