Krita 3.2 with new brushes, bug fixes and gmic-qt plugin supportkuba - Thursday, 17 August 2017
Krita Fundation released today the new version of Krita 3.2.0 digital painting software! Compared to Krita 3.1.4, released 26th of May, the 3.2 release offers support for the gmic-qt plugin created and maintained by the authors of G’Mic.
Note that the gmic-qt plugin is not available on OSX. Krita now ships with a pre-built gmic-qt plugin on Windows and the Linux AppImage. Krita 3.2 added Radian’s brush set to Krita’s default brushes. There are now shortcuts for changing layer states like visibility and lock. There have been many fixes to the clone brush. There is a new dialog from where you can copy and paste relevant information about your system for bug reports. Krita 3.2 offers integrated Smart Patch tool that was previously only in the 4.0 pre-alpha builds!
The Gaussian Blur in Krita 3.2 filter now can use kernels up to 1000 pixels in diameter. Among the bigger bug fixes: painting with your finger on touch screens is back. You can enable or disable this in the settings dialog. If previously you suffered from the “green brush outline” syndrome, that should be fixed now, too. Though we cannot guarantee the fix works on all OpenGL systems.
There have been a number of performance improvements in Krita 3.2 as well. The interaction with the file dialog has been improved: it should be better at guessing which folder you want to open, which filename to suggest and which file type to use. This is definitely the best release of Krita painting software so far.
