Welcome back, commander! The second beta version of Krita 5.2.0 has been published as we speak. Krita is a free and open-source graphics editor for digital art and 2D animation. It features an advanced brush engine, non-destructive layers and masks, group-based layer management, vector artwork support, color management support, and switchable customization profiles.  Here are the official words about Krita 5.2.0 Beta:

After two weeks of bug fixing, it is already time for the second 5.2 beta! In addition to the changes that 5.2 brings, we have fixed the following bugs in this second beta:

  • Recent files are now front and center. News items have more text.
  • Make new and open file buttons a bit bigger.
  • Update banner
  • Disable selection in the recent files list on the welcome page
  • Fix the welcome page layout flicker after closing the last file
  • Greatly improve the situation surrounding bitmap glyphs and general glyph retrieval (Bug 472566)
  • Add synthesizing italics and bold. We cannot disable these right now, but that was also the case with the previous text layout, and synthesizing italics and bolds is very important for East-Asian fonts. (Bug 465886)
  • svgtexttool: Disable Shift+Enter soft line breaks (Bug 472743)
  • Fix text-decoration not getting cleared when set as ‘none’. (Bug 466130)
  • Fix line height being capped due to naive handling of negative ascent.(Bug 472316)
  • svgtexttool: Allow Esc to cancel text shape creation when dragging
  • Fix rendering of text-decoration thickness (Bug 466130)
  • Let baseline adjustments be taken into account for line height calculation.
  • Fix incorrect baseline value by reinitializing the variable to 0 (Bug 472464).
  • Subtract the origin from the baseline value to get the appropriate baseline offset (Bug 472464)
  • Don’t strip any whitespaces from SVG text/tspan nodes
  • Fix SVG text-transform param ‘none’
  • text: Fix bounding box of bitmap glyphs in vertical mode (Bug 472566)
  • Embed our font libraries into the AppImage (Bug 472710)
  • Fix fill not painting because it was not using the boundingRect (Bug 473026).
  • Fix initialization of the fontconfig embedded into AppImage (Bug 473161)
  • Stabilize the outline code a little (Bug 473164).
  • Enable text tool to draw debug outlines of text shapes in view. This debug function can be enabled by setting the environment variable KRITA_DEBUG_TEXTTOOL.
  • Attempt to position the first few glyphs inside a shape (Bug 472571)
  • Make transformation resolution happen earlier and be a bit better aligned to the SVG 2 spec (Bug 472382)
  • Handling the hanging of white spaces, including partial and conditional hang (Bug 472829).
  • Improve justification of text.
  • Implement arbitrary run breaks inside raqm to ensure that absolute chunks are broken up (Bug 471374).
  • text: Skip Unicode Format (Cf) characters in a font matching
  • text: Check UTF-32 when deciding to skip font matching
  • Revert “Ensure pen brush (opposed to eraser brush) is selected on a new document” (Bug 472730)
  • Snap to exact 15-degree increments when using discrete rotate (Bug 472839)
  • Fix angle offset in Drawing Angle sensor (Bug 473103)
  • Fix masking brush size issues (again) (Bug 469604)
  • Fix sharpness option being uninitialized (Bug 472779Bug 472723)
  • Huge amount of work was done by Dmitry to make the new MLT engine handle better. Thanks to this, all sorts of small bugs were fixed: Including the loss of the ‘drop frames during playback’ functionality and issues with large animations.
  • Fix warning on loading animation XML
  • Fix a signal-slot connection
  • logdocker: Don’t interfere with default logging to the console
  • Show main window when closing session manager (Bug 431755)
  • Translation: Disambiguated the string “Static” and “Dynamic” for Wide Gamut Color Selector.
