"Ported: Krita now runs on Mac OS X and on Windows. Windows and Mac OS X ports are now available. They are easy to get using the Windows installer and Mac OS X disk image.

"Vector layers: Krita 1.6 made it possible to embed a KOffice KPart as a layer into an image. This makes it possible to have a complete KSpread or KWord document as a layer. In KOffice 2.0, KParts have been replaced by Flake Shapes, as an end result Krita 2.0 has vector layers where you can add any combination of KOffice shapes. Examples of KOffice shapes are vector drawings, text objects or even musical notation objects. These shapes are then rendered at the image resolution and blended with your pixel layers. The same technique is used for vector selections."
