Well, KO GmbH wasn't involved with the Krita fundraiser at all -- that was 
purely a volunteer effort in the Krita community. When we're out of the 
2.9 crunch, we'll have to do another one, work on that will start in 
January, and we really should go live with it in March.

The topics will be animation, osx, python scripting and making krita 
faster than photoshop, I expect.
