Today the Krita team releases Krita 3.1.1 ! Krita 3.1 is the first release that is fully supported on OSX (10.9 and later)!

It's now possible to use render animations (using ffmpeg) to gif or various video formats. You can use a curve editor to animate properties. Soft-proofing was added for seeing how your artwork will look in print. A new color picker that allows selecting wide-gamut colors. There is also a new brush engine that paints fast on large canvases, a stop-based gradient editor.
