  • Fix rendering animation frames if the directory you’re trying to render to doesn’t exist
  • Don’t open the tablet/screen resolution conflict dialog multiple times
  • Don’t scale down previews that are too small in the transform tool: this fixes a rare crash with the transform tool
  • Don’t crash when trying to close the last view on the last document while the document is modified.
  • Fix a crash when cycling quickly through layers that have a color tag
  • Fix loading some Gimp 2.9 files: note that Gimp 2.9’s file format is not officially supported in Krita
  • Fully remove the macro recorder plugin: in 3.1.4, only the menu entries had stayed around.
