Krita Desktop 2.9 Beta [desktop29]
This is a pinned discussion page where you can leave notes / ask simple questions re the desktop29 Beta.

Currently this only available on 64-bit systems, and for owners of Krita 2.8-3.0 and the lifetime upgrades packages. If you received a code for Krita Gemini in a promotional software pack, you can still download a copy from the announcement on the Krita website[] and the very latest windows builds can be found at

Well, erratic behavior of dirty presets and brushes swaping back to normal mode constantly sometimes bugs from previous beta are gone. Now there's just a bunch of G'mic crashes. Looks like it's very close to release state.
You, guys, are doing some seriously awesome job there. Thank you.

@LostMahPants - I've just pushed an update to desktop29 which I think might be able to address some of the G'mic issues, if you fancy trying it out and letting me know if it feels more stable? Although it looks like there is still an issue with some filters running-and-re-running (when using the Box sizing one, but suspect others are affected) but hopefully some of hte others might be more stable?

It's definitely more stable now. But aside from current G'mic state (if only interactive colorize was working) new version is noticably faster than old gemini in terms of big brushes, and with all new features - it feels like a huge leap towards the, probbably, unreachable (who knows, eh), perfect art software.

@LostMahPants ah cool, I'll see if I can find out what's happening (ask the core devs), looks like there might be a problem with the way the interactive stuff is being applied in general.

@DraccoonStu it's almost fixed in today's, thanks to Boudewijn and his 'absurdly huge stacksize for g'mic'. Interective colorize, however, shows palette only after preview window with control points is closed, making it unusable (or am i missing something there?). But it's not an insta-crash already. Actually, no crashes at all in ~40 minutes of playing around with G'mic. Future becomes brighter with every minute.

@LostMahPants - oh, nice, so you're using the file from rather than the steam update? I'll speak to boud and get another update pushed here in the meantime

@DraccoonStu, tried it just to see what can go wrong with it. And it turned out - pretty much nothing. The only thing i got - crop tool not keeping aspect ratio when pushed into canvas edge (with keep aspect ratio turned on, of course). But that's such a minor thing and, i think, might be already reported (many times).

P.s. Thanks for update here, on steam.

@LostMahPants You're welcome re the update - didn't make an announcement as it's relatively light, I've not had much time to do any coding, so in the meantime I'm just trying to push updates as the other devs push big fixes :D

EDIT: SOLVED (I finally figured out that the beta I wanted is [desktop29] i had mistakenly thought that wasn't a beta... sorry)

So I bought the Lifetime edition via Steam on 6/3/2015 and am unable to get the Beta version #'s to show in Help > About Krita (it shows Version 2.9 Pre-Alpha) I've attempted to correct this by verifying files to no avail... please help! thanks in advance.

(I do have the beta option selected, and am trying to do so to help with performance issues: the cursor crawls to practically a stop after a period of time)
