Krita 3.1.2 Released


Krita is a popular open source painting application that has been rapidly improving as of late.  They just released version 3.1.2 and the marque feature is the addition of audio support to animations to help with synchronizing with voices and music.  You can import WAV, MP3, OGG and FLAC files and the audio can optionally be included when exporting animations.  In addition to audio support, 3.1.2 contains several new features and bug fixes including:
