Development Builds Ready To Test

Previous Post | Thursday, 28 April 2016 | Reading time: 2 minutes | Next Post

So... Yesterday, Dmitry tried to fix an ancient bug that made it inconvenient to work with dockers, popups and the canvas: sometimes the focus would go haywire, and if you'd try to enter a value in a docker, or zoom while the cursor wasn't over your image, things would go wrong. Well... There's this fix, and it needs testing. It really needs testing before we can make it part of Krita 3.0. So, here are new builds for Windows, Linux and OSX. Please help by downloading them and giving them a good work-out. There are a dozen or so other fixes in there as well, but I won't bore you with those. Please test! Spend an hour or two painting, transforming, swapping brushes, setting colors! You can download all of these and use them without interfering with any of your Krita 2.9 settings.


Windows: Unzip and run the bin/krita.exe executable!

The OSX disk image still has the known issue that if OpenGL is enabled, the brush outline cursor, grids, guides and so on are not visible. We’re working on that, but don’t expect to have rewritten the canvas before 3.0 will be released.

**The Linux appimage:**After downloading, make the appimage executable and run it. No installation is needed. For CentOS 6 and Ubuntu 12.04, a separate appimage without G'Mic is provided: it is no longer possible to build the latest version of G'Mic in a way that can run on those distributions.
