Second Beta for Krita 5.2.0 Released

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 recent files list on welcome page
  • Fix welcome page layout flicker after closing the last file
  • Greatly improve the situation surrounding bitmap glyphs and general glyph retrieval ( Bug 472566)
  • Add synthesizing italic 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 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).

  • Don’t strip any whitespaces from SVG text/tspan nodes
  • Fix SVG text-transform param ‘none’

  • Fix initialization of the fontconfig embedded into AppImage ( Bug 473161)
  • Stabilize the outline code a little ( Bug 473164).
