I got stuck around this point too. Took me ages to see the necessary elimination (and again just now on your image!).

On the bottom row, counting left to right, only one of the 4th and 5th numbers can be even.
From that you can deduce three bottom row numbers that must be odd.

(I'm trying not to give too many clues!)

In the nine grids from bottom right, 5, 9, and 3 of the eighth row can only be in 3 of them.

Thanks to both of you.

I looked for both of these tricks, but didn't see them.
