How to install Krita 3.3.2 released on Ubuntu 17.10, 18.10

   Krita is a professional FREE and open source painting program. It is made by artists that want to see affordable art tools for everyone.

  •     concept art
  •     texture and matte painters

Krita 3.3.2 Changelog:
fixes two important regressions:
  • Krita 3.3.1 would read brush presets with textures incorrectly. This is now fixed.

  • Performance: improved caching for effect and selection masks
  • Performance: Fix a leak in the smudge brush
  • Performance: Improve performance when using the hardware-accelerated canvas
  • Performance, Windows: improve the performance when loading icons

  • Filters: it’s now possible to edit the filter’s settings directly in the xml that is used to save filter definitions to .krita files.
  • Filters: a new ASC_CDL color balance filter was added, with Slope, Offset and Power options.
  • Crashes: fix a crash that happened when closing a second document with infinite canvas active
  • Layers: Make it possible to copy group layers
  • UI: make it possible to use the scroll-wheel to scroll through patterns when the patterns palette is very narrow.
