Note that the Krita Foundation (Stichting Krita) has been instrumental in fundraiser efforts around Krita. The first program, executed during the 2009-2010 timeframe, allowed Lukáš Tvrdý to work full-time on Krita for 24 weeks. This made a massive difference for Krita, solving hundreds of bugs and improving performance and usability of the canvas and many brushes to the level where Krita first became ready for (semi) professional use. Find more details here. Subsequent fundraisers supported Dmitry Kazakov who brought openGL support to a new level and introduced advanced canvas operations like panning, mirroring and rotation and independent artist Timothee Giet who developed the "Comics with Krita" training DVD as well as a host of other video tutorials on Youtube.
