The first bugfix release for the digital painting software Krita 2.9, was announced today. The new release brings the latest G’Mic plugin, improves the filter layer layout, and fixes a few bugs

Here’s the changelog according to the release note:

  • Improve the layout of the filter layer/⁠mask dialog’s filter selector
  • Fix the layout of the pattern selector for fill layers
  • Remove the dependency of QtUiTools, which means that no matter whether the version Qt installed and the version Qt Krita was built agast differ, the layer metadata editors work
  • Fix a bug that happened when switching between workspaces
  • Fix bug 339357: the time dynamic didn’t start reliably
  • Fix bug 344862: a crash when opening a new view with a tablet stylus

  • Fix bug 184746: merging two vector layers now creates a vector layer instead of rendering the vectors to pixels
  • Add an option to disable the on-canvas notification messages (for some people, they slow down drawing)
  • Fix bug 344243: make the preset editor visible in all circumstances
