Krita 5.1.4, the latest version of this series arrives to fix bugs

Krita 5.1.4

Yesterday December 14 was announced the launch of Krita 5.1.4, which will probably be the last maintenance release of the 5.1 series. His arrival has occurred a month after a v5.1.3 in which improvements in support for the JPEG-XL format were highlighted, a format that some like a lot and others not so much, such as Google, which will eliminate support in its browser in the coming weeks.

The team of developers of this application created by and for cartoonists is already preparing the next major update. "This will probably be the last 5.1 bugfix release, as we are updating our dependencies and builds after this. The next one will be 5.2, with a lot of changes!«.
