After a year of hard work, Krita 5.2 is finally here, bringing a variety of new features, ranging from fundamental changes in text and animation-audio handling to various smaller items like transforming all selected layers!
The following fixes were made in response to all your bug reports for the first release candidate:
In addition to the many new features listed in the release notes, there is also an updated welcome screen with larger thumbnails for recent images:
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 we are not making 32 bits Windows builds anymore.
The separate gmic-qt AppImage is no longer needed.
(If, for some reason, Firefox thinks it needs to load this as text: to download, right-click on the link.)
Note: if you use macOS Sierra or High Sierra, please check this video to learn how to enable starting developer-signed binaries, instead of just Apple Store binaries.
We consider Krita on ChromeOS as ready for production. Krita on Android is still beta. Krita is not available for Android phones, only for tablets, because the user interface requires a large screen.
