Krita 4.4.7 Released

Published    7th August, 2021

This is strictly a bug fix release. The most important reason for this release is a fix for a performance regression in Krita 4.4.5. There are a few other fixes:

  • Fix a crash on exit with certain versions of Qt and PyQt
  • Fix moving selection with the magnetic selection tool (BUG:433633)
  • Fix crashes in the magnetic selection tool when deleting nodes (BUG:439896)
  • Fix an assert when converting the image color space from Python (BUG:437980)
  • Fix a crash when closing a gamut mask document (BUG:438914)
  • Fix drag and drop of clone layers between images (BUG:414699)
  • Fix crash when saving the image with trimming enabled (BUG:437626)


Note: there is no Krita 4.4.6, that version number was created only for the release on the Epic store.


If you’re using the portable zip files, just open the zip file in Explorer and drag the folder somewhere convenient, then double-click on the krita icon in the folder. This will not impact an installed version of Krita, though it will share your settings and custom resources with your regular installed version of Krita. For reporting crashes, also get the debug symbols folder.

Note that from this release on we are not making 32 bits Windows builds anymore.


(If, for some reason, Firefox thinks it needs to load this as text: to download, right-click on the link.)


Note: if you use OSX Sierra or High Sierra, please check this video to learn how to enable starting developer-signed binaries, instead of just Apple Store binaries.

Note: the gmic-qt is not available on OSX.


This time, the Android releases are made from the release tarball, so there are translations. We consider Krita on ChromeOS and Android still beta. There are many things that don’t work and other things that are impossible without a real keyboard. You can also get Krita 4.4.7 from Google Play.
