Krita 2.8 (Beta3) is now in Krita Lime!

As you may already know for some reasons the release of Calligra 2.8, which should have happened on the last Wednesday, was postponed for at least a week. That is sad but we could do nothing with it :(

But Krita team didn't want to let its users down! So we created our own packages based on the 2.8 release branch and published them on Krita Lime! Now you can not only install 'krita-testing' package, which is based on quite unstable master branch, but also 'krita-2.8' package, which is almost exactly the same thing which is going to be published in a week as Krita 2.8! :)

To install the stable Krita packages for any still supported Ubuntu distro (Precise, Quantal or Saucy) you need to do a couple of steps:
  1. Check that you don't have any original calligra or krita packages provided by your distribution or project-neon (if you have one, the installer will report you about a conflict)
  2. Add the PPA to repositories list:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dimula73/krita
  3. Update the cache:
    sudo apt-get update
  4. Install Krita 2.8:
    sudo sudo apt-get install krita-2.8 krita-2.8-dbg
We've also prepared new packages for Windows users:
For 64-bit: Krita_x64_2.7.9.12
and 32-bit: Krita_x86_2.7.9.12
