Has anyone else tried it? I'd like to get it into the main repo, and it shouldn't need anything else outside of the main repositories. It does require vc-dev from the test repo to build, but that's not a runtime dependency, and it's actually possible to build Krita without that, at the cost of the code not being "vectorized", whatever that is.

I've been using the Test Repo version of Krita a fair bit this week, but only their basic drawing and colour fill tools on different layers.

No problems directly editing png files, or creating a .kra work file, or generating/exporting a png file from the .kra file.

All I can say is that those functions work.

Thanks! I think it's safe to move to main, since there isn't any Stretch version to replace, and it doesn't affect any system libraries.
