Krita 5.1.5, a corrective version especially for Android and ChromeOS

Krita 5.1.5

About three weeks ago now, KDE published what seemed like it was going to be the last version of the current Krita series. Things have not gone as expected, since this week they have launched Krita 5.1.5, a “bugfix” update that will mainly fix things on Android and ChromeOS, both Google operating systems (the first for mobile phones and the second for computers).

In total, the list of new features of Krita 5.1.5 contains 8 changes, all marked as corrections. If they don't find more things to fix, the next version should already be Krita 5.2, although considering that they haven't released the beta yet, it will still take a while to be able to use that version. Below you have a list with the news that have arrived together with v5.1.5 published on January 5th.

What's new in Krita 5.1.5

  • Fixed a banding issue when using the gradient map filter as a filter layer.
  • Paste only in the center of the active layer if the content is outside the bounds of the image.
  • EXR: Fixed opening EXR files that only have a luma channel.
  • Fixed a problem when building with XSIMD 10.0 and higher.
  • Correct use of the resolution of a .KRA file when that file is used as a file layer.
  • Fixed a regression in loading PSD files.
  • Android: Fixed loading and creating images on Android and ChromeOS.
  • Android: Fixed an issue with loading translations.

Krita 5.1.5 can now be downloaded since official website, from where Linux users have an AppImage available. In the next few days it will appear in the official repositories of most Linux distributions. The software can also be downloaded from Flatub y Snapcraft, but both packages are yet to be updated (and the snap is still at v5.1.1).
