We're very happy to report that we've pushed a new update for Krita Gemini which resolves some of the issues people have reported, adds some additional features, improves performance and adds a reporting tool so you can submit crash-reports to us, should you be so unfortunate as to encounter one.
Included this release:
Copy+Paste tools in Sketch
Improved performance in Krita Gemini
Add support for layer-groups in PSD files
Default to dark theme for new new users as it is preferred by many artists (can change under Settings-Themes)
Fix: Save dialog no longer requires file extension to save correctly
Fix: Recent file list now updating
Fix: Titlebar correctly reflects current file
...and many other little little improvements
There is still a subtle saving bug which only affects you if you create or open a new image from the Desktop view (so, a second instance of Krita launches). The second instance of Krita tends to have problems saving as a Krita file and reports an error that it couldn't save. Don't worry if you encounter this error - if you open file manager to inspect the save directory you should see that it has indeed saved a file named: "yourfilename.kraRANDOMLETTERS.new" just delete the bit of the filename after .kra and it should load fine.
We hope you enjoy this update, and you'll be seeing more regular updates over the next few weeks!
We're happy to say that users of a 64-bit version of Windows should see their copies of Krita Gemini being updated automatically to the 64-bit version.
The first version of Krita Gemini that was being distributed was only 32-bit in order to help simplify testing and to make sure that it supported a broader spectrum of users before we went live on the store. Some people had reported issues when working with larger files, so hopefully this should make things run a bit smoother!
"Free, Open Source Application sold as a Steam Early Access Game" Sounds far-too appropriate for today, but really there's no foolish shenanigans here!
Krita Gemini is an improved version of the already popular open-source Krita painting program. The version on Steam, in its final version will have improved support for Steam features as well as the 2-in-1 switching interface to help you get the most out of your convertible laptop, tablet or HTPC.
Whilst we work on getting a demo ready, why not try out the free, fully-featured Krita Desktop!
Krita Gemini is a painting application which adjusts to your needs - with a powerful, feature-rich interface on your PC, and a streamlined touch-friendly sketching interface on your tablet or convertible. With a range of tools and features suitable for novice or professional artists.
