September Development Update
We’re about to do another bug-fix release of Krita: that’ll be 4.2.7. We’re seeing that the number of new bug reports is dropping a bit, week over week: even though most bug reports can be closed instantly as duplicates or not bugs at all, that’s probably a sign that our stab...

Interview with Julius Grels
Could you tell us something about yourself? Sure. I’m Julius Grels, and “I like to call myself an artist whenever I’m wasted enough”. In all seriousness though, I think I’d describe myself more as a self-taught caricaturist or illustrator. I usually like to take some ex...
