Release Notes for Krita 3.2

Previous Post | Monday, 17 July 2017 | Reading time: 3 minutes | Next Post

There are numerous bug fixes and some very cool new features since Krita 3.1.4. Check out GDQuest's overview video below with all the changes:

G'MIC Plugin

Krita 3.2 uses the gmic-qt plugin created and maintained by the authors of G'Mic.  This plugin replaces completely the older gmic plugin. On Windows and Linux, the plugin is bundled with Krita and should work out of the box. It's still rather experimental, though it's considerably more up to date and stable than the previous gmic integration.

On OSX, we cannot for now provide the plugin for a number of reasons: the underlying g'mic library needs X11 to show dialogs for e.g. interactive colorize, we have trouble actually compiling the binary and have it run and once that hurdle is taken, OSX breaks the plugin by limiting shared memory to chunks of 40 megabytes.

Touch Painting

You can now paint with your fingers. This was in Krita 2.8, but was lost when we did our Qt5 port. It's back! If you don't want this, you can disable touch painting support in the settings dialog.

Smart Patch Tool

Clean up and remove elements you don't want. This was previously going to be in Krita 4.0, but we managed to get it in this release! Check out the demo below. The tool is in the toolbox with its own set of tool options.

New Brush Presets

We added Radian's brush set to Krita's default brushes. These brushes are good for create a strong painterly look.
