What's new in this version:

- The most important fix is a weird one: it might help your wifi connection. The problem is that we started building a widget that would show you the news feed from The widget isn’t active, and doesn’t make any kind of network connection… But Qt’s network manager class still checks your wifi settings all the time
- Apart from that, we’ve worked around a bug in Qt 5.12 that would cause an instant crash when using a tablet. Our own builds do not use that version of Qt, so the Windows builds, macOS build and the Linux appimage are fine, but users of rolling Linux releases like Arch would suffer from this issue

And there are more bug fixes, of course:
- Fix showing wrongly that there is no audio support in the animation timeline audio menu
- Disable the disk-based animation cache rendering backend on Windows: this would give problems with animations bigger than about 150 frames
- Don’t hang when trying to load recent files thumbnails for files in a location that’s no longer accessible
- Make it possible to use the LUT docker when Angle is enabled on Windows. We have also updated the OpenColorIO library to the latest release
- Remember whether anti-aliasing was enabled in selection tools
- Add a shortcut to activate the text tool
- Make the toolbars movable again
- Make Select by Color Range check the entire image
- Enable HiDPI support by default: the problems with the canvas scaling have been solved
- Allow krita to import more than file at a time when started from a file manager
- Fix using the scrollwheel in comboboxes on Linux
- Fix the calculation of Average Desaturation
- Do not crash when exporting Compositions
- Make the move tool show the correct cursor in all modes
- Let the move tool move invisible layers
- Fix a crash in the artistic color selector
