Shutter screenshot tool updated
After 15 weeks of development, the Shutter Project developers have released version 0.85 of their open source screenshot tool. Shutter (originally know as GScrot) is a feature-rich application for Linux that allows users to use a range of criteria to specify an area of their display, take a screenshot and then apply different effects. Once the grab and edit is completed, the tool gives users the option to upload the image to an image hosting site. The latest release includes a number of improvements and new features.
Shutter 0.85 features the addition of undo / redo functionality within the main program, allowing users to easily revert to previous versions, the ability to drag and drop pictures into Shutter and capture menus and tooltips. The developers note that, "to make Shutter even more usable and intuitive", they have also reworked much of the user interface (UI) and improved the Advanced Selection Tool. Additionally, Shutter can now use the system's notification architecture to display information, such as delay, pre-delay and save messages.
More details about the release, including a full list of changes, can be found in the change log and release announcement. Shutter 0.85 is available to download and is released under version 3 of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3).
