News from Krita

Boudewijn Rempt just published a long (4000 words) blog post about the state of Krita: where it is coming from and what it is up to for the upcoming 2.0 release. Lots of cool new features that I am looking forward to play with.

Well worth reading and kudos to the team!!

PS: and in the meantime, it looks like GIMP 2.8 will have some support for 16bits / pixel. Exciting times ahead.

    Can’t wait for bigger color depth in gimp.
    I’m using gimp from svn but for now there’s no support.
    I’ll try this patch.

    Yes, but don’t expect too much. It is rather a proof of concept than anything else. Even GIMP 2.8 will only support limited 16bits functionality.

    The good news is that it is coming 🙂

    Nice news, but I’m worried with the stuff like 😦

    However, let’s hope GIMP will overcome it…since there are no news from Cinepaint about new release(s).
