What's new in this version
Krita 4.1 is a new feature release! There is a completely new Reference Images tool. That allows you to drag your references on the canvas, and even save them with your Krita project file. Animation support has improved: there are new ways to work with frames, to act on multiple layers in a frame at the same time and the timeline has improved as well. Plus, Krita can now handle longer animations by caching the rendered frames on disk. The color picker now has a blending mode, so you can mix a color from the canvas to get a new color. The vanishing point assistant now can show reference lines -- and you can configure the colors of the assistant lines. Another new feature is sessions and window layouts: sessions saves open images so the next time you start Krita, your workspace can be restored. Window layouts lets you save your favorite multi-window configuration. Then there are performance improvements: the circular gaussian and soft brush tips are up to to ten times faster! There's a new filter: Cross Channel Adjustment that lets you drive color adjustments by the values of another channel, so you can for instance increase the redness of only the lighter pixels.
