Previous Post | Monday, 1 June 2020 | Reading time: 4 minutes | Next Post

This is the second beta release for Krita 4.3.0. It's later than expected because our system for making release builds was temporarily unavailable.

Since the first beta, the following issues have been addressed:

Also, Rafał Mikrut has submitted many fixes for issues with memory management and pointer access. Thanks!

The full release notes bring you all the details!

Please help improve Krita by testing this beta!



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.


(If, for some reason, Firefox thinks it needs to load this as text: to download, right-click on the link.)


Note: the gmic-qt is not available on OSX.


The Android builds were made from git, not the release tarball, so they don't have translations. The beta is labeled 4.3.0-beta1 but actually contains all the fixes for beta 2, except for the commit that changed the version number.

This version of Krita for Android can load .kra files from Google Drive folders on ChromeOS, has fixes for problems with the menubar on some Samsung devices and has Samsung Air gestures integrated.

It is still not recommended to use these betas on phones, though they do install. This beta will also be available in the Google Play Store.
