I think we're mostly done, really. There are a few points left on the official 

* File/Import and File/Export don't warn when exporting to
  an unsupported filetype. (Still valid).

* Photoshop files are not recognized when opened, but there is now an
  option in the list of filetypes and that works.

--> These two point I don't know how to fix. It's probably something to do 
with a complicated interaction between Krita, KOffice, kdelibs and whatnot.

* Mirroring, scaling should also transform the selection -
  or take it into account.

  Current problems:
        * On mirroring, the whole image is mirrored, not the selected
          bits. The selection is not mirrored.
        * Shear ditto.

--> I've given this a try, and maybe I should do so again, but frankly, I 
cannot conceive of an option I haven't already tried.

* Select colorrange dialog appears to be broken -- the dialog has no
  "replace" option anymore, which is necessary, and the preview only
  takes effect after the selection has been made. Selecting by tone
  gives a very curious effect.

--> This one is hard to reproduce. We cannot re-intrododuce the replace option
at the moment because of the string freeze, and I cannot reliably reproduce 
the strange, blocky effect I got with one image.

* It should use filter during scaling
* It doesn't handle "infinite" selections

--> These are for Casper, really.

* A krita document embedded in KWord has the wrong scaling

--> This is too fundamental to do right now. It has to do with our own 
optimized zooming that is not completely compatible with the KOffice way of 
doing it.

And finally, I had hoped to fix painting on cmyk layers, but that doesn't work 
either. CMYK finally works, you can even filter a cmyk image and save one, 
but import/export to cmyk tiff doesn't appear to work, and painting is wrong 
because we don't have an alpha channel in cmyk yet.

And that's it. We're feature-complete and release-ready.
