Alright, this is the main release task for 4.0! That's right, a whole new version number!
We've fully gone over all our vector tools and made them more usable. Furthermore, the default format is SVG instead of ODG. Another exciting thing is that we've got python scripting in Krita now!

If you have anything else to add, add a comment as well! Putting all the comments about a given release into a single task is much easier on the bookkeeping!
