Krita 4.2.9 Released


Krita announced their latest version.

Today we’re finally releasing Krita 4.2.9! It’s been one of the most complicated releases we’ve ever attempted. When we updated the version of Python that’s embedded in Krita, scripting broke on Windows. When Apple updated its notarization protocol, building broke on macOS. And then we updated to a newer version of some of the libraries we build Krita on, and that broke all kinds of things. And then we needed to figure out a new way of packaging Krita for the Windows Store, which unfortunately broke our nice icons…

Krita 4.2.9 however is really stable after all the testing it had during the beta period. And there are even some new features to enjoy!

  1. Dear Bart,
    there are always new kids on the block who start from scratch, for those and some others, it might be interesting to mention what Krita actually does (or place a link to the description), this saves a bit of unnecessary googling if it is beyond one's capabilities or field of interest.

    • How are you not aware of Krita? it's been around long enough, and has established itself as a solid bitmap graphics package.

      • It's not hard to not know about krita.
        This is the internet, used by people aged 3 to 103, of different walks of life and interests, and very often using news scrobblers to get news.

        "A new version of Krita, a graphics editing program, has finally been released.." would have sorted all kinds of problems as well as followed good writing practices.


  2. sorry Bart, but I thought that the link you placed would direct me to a boring page with just code (due to the name "changelog" so I did not bother clicking it. I did now... I wanted to delete my first post, but this seems not possible here. my excuses.
