New
  • Layers, channel output: Individual channels can now be switched off in the Layer Attributes
  • Pixel grid (setting under Display > Grid)
  • New function: Layout > Text > Table of Contents
  • New function: Tool > Color > Vibrance
  • Multichannel images: More than one color can now be assigned. Curves are now also possible.
  • Multichannel images: Can now be created in picture mode.
  • Multichannel images: In RGB documents, a CMYK image is used for display to simulate overprinting more effectively
  • Tool > Color > Color Lookup: Can now also load HaldCluts
  • Optimize contrast: With "according to selected area"
  • Fill function: Can now optionally create a vector layer
  • Placeholder layer: Option for "embedded" in the Layer Attributes
  • Adjustment layers, copy and paste: Fully opaque adjustment layers with document size are adjusted to the size of the new document during pasting
  • Lens Correction dialog: Dialog preview for perspective correction now optionally with grid
  • Lens Correction dialog: Cache for Lensfun, thus faster perspective correction
  • Lens Correction dialog: Perspective creates no longer a transformation of background layer
  • Hue/Saturation: All changed areas are marked with a '*'.
  • Plug-in interface extended
  • Color picker: Now also with large sizes
  • "Remove object" in tool settings: Source area can be set more effectively
  • New: "Transform Vector Points" tool (same toolbar position as "Edit vector points")
  • New: Path groups
  • Curve Creation tool, Edit Vector Points tool: Automatic guides are created for the active path
  • Edit Vector Points: Auxiliary curve points can now be aligned to other curve points
  • Edit Vector Points: Auxiliary curve points are now modified for all selected vector points
Improvements
  • PSD import: if existing, vector paths will be used as layer masks
  • JPEG2000: now supports Lab
  • JPEG export: Now images with multiple paths can be saved
  • Raw import: Unsupported raw files allow other imports to load
  • Raw Import: now also newer cameras via LibRaw
  • PDF import: multi-channel images (DeviceN) are now imported as a single gray image with multiple colors
  • PDF import: None is supported for DeviceN
  • PDF export: multichannel images are now exported as DeviceN and no longer simulated by overprinting
  • Document: Now has "Antialiasing" in Document Attributes (also scripting)
  • Layer attributes, scaling: When the layer tool is active and the reference point is visible, scaling is now performed relative to the reference point
  • Page List: Pages can now be deleted with "Del
  • Page List: now with matrix mode
  • Menu icons: can now be switched on/off
  • Scroll bars in document windows: Can be switched off
  • Settings > Display > Document, macOS: Retina resolution can be disabled
  • Text functions such as bold, italics, ...: a shortcut key can now be assigned
  • Controls: send unused keystrokes to the document
  • Action List, Windows: When deleting an action steps with Del, the list always lost the input focus
  • Layer List, Windows, HiDPI screen: Size is now a relative value
  • Layer List: Alt+click on the pop-up arrow opens all children and grandchildren
  • Layer tool: Scaling shows the difference
  • Layer tool: Rotation shows the angle and the difference
  • Angle text fields: can be switch between clockwise and counterclockwise
  • Document information: Missing fonts are now marked red
  • Esc: If there is one, the "Rotate view" rotation is now reset, otherwise a tool change is performed
  • Alt+rotate gesture: The view is rotated
  • Automatic guides: Layer masks also snap to the boundaries of the parent layer
  • Gradient action: Now creates editable gradients like the Gradient tool
  • Edit > Paste: PNG data are preferred
  • Clipboard, Windows: If another program blocks the clipboard, copying is repeated
  • Paste to Foreground Color/Background Color: Is now recorded as an action
  • Text flow distance: Can now be recorded as an action
  • Transparency raster size: For small color fields, the raster size is adjusted to the size of the color field
  • Curves: Manual curve data can be converted to Bezier
  • Scripting: Multiple pages can be moved
  • Splash-Dialog, macOS: Is now built in retina resolution if necessary
  • Color Selection > Pattern: Proportional now refers to the current values
Bug fixes
  • Images with adjustment layer children: If they were cached, a change to the document profile had no effect on the cache
  • Placeholder: Fixing an empty placeholder caused a crash
  • Raw import: The assigned raw action was applied without active layer
  • Raw import: A assigned raw action was applied to the document without placeholders
  • Isolated groups, float images: Rare crash fixed
  • Scripting: When saving single layers the saving options were ignored
  • Plug-Ins: Version 2 of the BufferSuite is now supported
  • Spell check, Windows 10: Could set incorrect markers
  • Empty documents, Save as JPEG: Empty documents could not be saved as JPEG
  • PDF export, images with transparency: A white vector background layer was created for simple images with transparency
  • Reduce To One Layer: If there was a background layer with child layers, it kept its child layers
  • Adjustment layer, isolated group, cache: If an adjustment layer requested a preview image, the cache might have been created for this preview and was therefore wrong, because the cache did not contain the adjustment layer
  • BMP import: Crash with Gimp 16-bit BMPs fixed
  • PSD import: Does not load images with unusual header length on adjustment layers
  • Edit > Search: Did not display the first search result
  • Layer list, filtering: the color comparison was to precise (comparison value is now in HTML format)
  • PDF import: Tab characters are replaced by spaces
  • Graphics tablet, Windows: Handling of the middle mouse button changed
  • Lasso tools: Crash without active layer fixed
  • Layer tool, centered scaling: If the reference point was on one of the vertices, there could be problems with centered scaling
  • Screen output, drawing in a layer mask with blur: display was not correct
  • Print dialog, Windows: Embedded dialog is scaled with screen DPI
  • Clipboard Manager: Fixed possible crash
  • Splash dialog, macOS, unregistered: Didn't show the "Register..." button
  • Mirror plane: Layers with layer masks and groups with clipping layers changed their position
  • Lens correction, dialog preview: In a scaled dialog box, the preview field didn't fill the available space after opening
  • Save dialog, macOS 10.15: "File already exists" message should always appear if needed
  • Layer tool, grid: The grid could not be activated for the background layer
  • Convert with color profile: If the default setting was a profile that no longer existed, this caused an error
  • High pass, scaled image with transparency: Crash fixed
  • PDF proof mode: tints of spot colors are no longer converted
  • Booklet printing can now print different sizes
  • EXIF data and document information, delete: The delete action has a better name
  • Rectangular lasso, strongly scaled layer: The masked area could exceed the lasso (only without lasso antialiasing)
  • Lasso, scaled layer: moving and scaling did not work correctly
  • Lasso tool, clear mask: After deleting the mask, "Create lasso" was not automatically activated
  • PDF import: Merging text snippets did not work properly with strong kerning
  • PDF import: problems with inline images fixed
  • PDF import: Gradients with function arrays with indirect entries are read correctly
  • Stamp tool: Empty stamps led to a crash
  • Picture overview, PSD import: fixed possible crash with multichannel images
  • Layer tool: Double click on a text layer now always activates the text tool, even for embedded layers
  • PSD import: various minor import problems
  • Text colors, macOS: With system colors grayed out text was black (e.g. in document attributes)
  • Text colors, macOS: Due to the above correction, selected text in inactive (sub)windows was grayed out
  • Update text style: The description of the text style was not updated
  • Create a new text style: The new text style is automatically assigned to the paragraphs based on which it was created
  • "Select directory" dialog, macOS: could crash on exit
  • Convert layer type, vector layer mask, inverted: Inverted vector layer masks lost their inverted status when converted to an image
  • Adjustment layers, preview image: Modal and non-modal dialogs now use the same preview image
