Krita 3.1 Digital Painting App Now in Development, Promises Cool New Features

Krita 3.1 promises to be the first major point release of the Krita 3.x series, adding a new brush engine that supports huge brushes, new animation feature, soft proofing, support for high-channel depth color selectors, a stop-based gradient editor, as well as FFmpeg-based export to animated GIF image and video formats. Moreover, it looks like Krita 3.1 will be the first version of the open-source and cross-platform digital painting software to be officially supported on the Mac OS X platform, which means that the OpenGL canvas will fully work. Lots of bugs will be fixed as well, so users are urged to test this second Beta release and report any issues.
