This bug is already Fixed in git, but is marked as Open. I am now
marking it Closed because a new stable version, 1.1.0, is
available, meaning that this bug no longer affects the current
stable release.

Please reopen if this problem reoccurs with the new version of

Bug was actually present since 1.0.0 already, fixed in master now.

The color history ("x" key or right-click by default) behaviour in git is broken (not useful any more).

The "x" key was supposed to be a way to toggle between the current and the previous color (like in GIMP), with the extra functionality that you could also reach further back if needed. If you press "x" several times while making a stroke, it is supposed to toggle forth and between the current and last color.

Instead, it seems that you now have to cycle through the whole color history now for the most common usecase (which is switching forth and back between two colors).

This is a regression from v1.0.0.
