Well, most of these things are known. We've had some regressions due to recent 
refactorings :-(. Try opening a new window...

Bart Coppens is working on the fill tool (I hope -- he has screenshots of 
areas filled with patterns on his home page. That the fill tool doesn't work 
seems related to the colour picker not working: Cyrille has worked really 
hard on making Krita more flexible with colour models and one of the 
artefacts is that the code to read a pixel value is a bit broken at the

If you've got access to a cheap Wacom pad like the Graphire (or even an 
expensive one, drool), you'll be able to appreciate Krita's most impressive

crosshairs, since the tool cursor is annoying me when sketching a stoneware
