Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Krita is an open-source image manipulation software, allowing the user to either create pictures from scratch or edit existing images. It is good because it supports most graphics tablets very well.

  • Fix lock proportions in the free transform tool when locking aspect ratio
  • Add an option to hide the docker titlebars
  • Update the resource manager lists after loading a resource bundle
  • Make the resource manager look for bundles by default
  • Make Krita start faster by only loading images for the references docker when the references docker is visible
