Krita 2.8.2 Released



The Krita team releases the second bugfix release of Krita 2.8.

Most of the development work at the moment is going into some big issues for 2.9, like the resources manager, MVC refactoring and HDR color selectors, but there are some nice improvements

  • add support for reading PSD layer groups
  • new splash screen with recent files and links to the Krita website
  • save tags with special characters properly (bug 332708)
  • fix removing tags
  • restore native file dialogs on Windows
  • fix a bunch of memory leaks

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Yes! Finger Pinch Zoom/Pan on Surface Pro works now!
    This makes Krita a serious drawing tool for the Surface Pro. Zoom/Pan with one Hand, draw/paint with the other.

      And to anyone wondering, yes, Unreal Engine 4 is a pleasure to use, beautiful design, beautiful results. Even with Blender, though admittedly, I do keep another package around as well.
