In the first place, we’ve got a new full-time developer! Tiar, who is well known in Krita’s Reddit community, graduated from university just when the increased income from Steam made it possible to hire someone to help out with this year’s big goal: bug fixing! Tiar started March 1st, and has already fixed more than a dozen or so tough bugs. Krita now finally has a real Nearest Neighbour scaling method, for instance.
Today we're releasing Krita 4.1.7, another bug fix release in the Krita 4.1 series.
The most important fix is a weird one: it might help your wifi connection. The problem is that we started building a widget that would show you the news feed from krita.org. The widget isn't active, and doesn't make any kind of network connection... But Qt's network manager class still checks your wifi settings all the time. See these bugs: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-46015 and https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-40332.
Apart from that, we've worked around a bug in Qt 5.12 that would cause an instant crash when using a tablet. Our own builds do not use that version of Qt, so the Windows builds, macOS build and the Linux appimage are fine, but users of rolling Linux releases like Arch would suffer from this issue.
And there are more bug fixes, of course:
- Fix showing wrongly that there is no audio support in the animation timeline audio menu
- Disable the disk-based animation cache rendering backend on Windows: this would give problems with animations bigger than about 150 frames. (BUG 401326)
- Don't hang when trying to load recent files thumbnails for files in a location that's no longer accessible. (BUG:401939)
- Make it possible to use the LUT docker when Angle is enabled on Windows. We have also updated the OpenColorIO library to the latest release.
- Remember whether anti-aliasing was enabled in selection tools (BUG:401730)
- Add a shortcut to activate the text tool (BUG:401655)
- Make the toolbars movable again
- Make Select by Color Range check the entire image (BUG:346138)
- Enable HiDPI support by default: the problems with the canvas scaling have been solved.
- Allow krita to import more than file at a time when started from a file manager (BUG:401476)
- Fix using the scrollwheel in comboboxes on Linux (BUG:399379) Patch by Mykola Krachkovsky.
- Fix the calculation of Average Desaturation (BUG:400493)
- Do not crash when exporting Compositions (BUG:400627)
- Make the move tool show the correct cursor in all modes
- Let the move tool move invisible layers
- Fix a crash in the artistic color selector (BUG:399860)
