Krita and Bug Week!

Previous Post | Friday, 19 June 2015 | Reading time: 4 minutes | Next Post

It's been a while since we made a new build of Krita... So, here's Krita! In all the hectics surrounding the Kickstarter campaign, we worked our tails off to add new features, improvements and fixes, and that caused considerable churn in the code. And that, in turn, meant that the was a bit, well, dot zero! So here's a with the following improvements:


Fixed Bugs



Now, that's not to say that is perfect... And the increased interest in Krita has also led to an increase in reported bugs! We've got about 315 open bugs now, which is a record!

In fact, we need help. We need help with what's called bug triage: checking which bugs are actually duplicates of each other and which bugs are actually reproducible and which bugs are more like wishes than bugs.

And then we need to do something about the bugs that are proper, valid and reproducible! So, we propose to have our first 2015 bug weekend. We'd like to invite everyone to install Krita and go through some bugs in  the bug list and help us triage!

Here's the list of bugs that need urgent triaging:

Unconfirmed, reopened, need-info Krita Bugs

Let's get this list to zero!

And of course, there are also bugs that are already confirmed, but might have duplicated in the list above:

Confirmed Krita Bugs

We're not looking for new bugs -- but if you find one, take a moment to read Dmitry's guide on bug reporting.

Here's the Bug Hunter Howto, too. Join us this weekend and help us get the bug count down and the bug list manageable! In the coming two weeks, the developers will be busy fixing bugs so we can have a really stable base for all the kickstarter work!
