As you may already know, Mattias and I have been working Screenshot Sender 5.0 for quite a long time now. (Way too long actually...)
Last year, we threw the first public beta version in the wild but after that, development slacked down again. We were determined to finish the script this summer and now we can say that we're close to the final release. We're both excited to announce that release candidate 1
is available for use and translating!
What can you expect?
- New ways to capture screenshots.
Now you can also take screenshots by clicking on the window or selecting the window by its title.
- A brand new design.
The screenshot viewer and preview windows have a unique ribbon interface which provide a much better user experience. Make sure you check it out, they're sexy.
For easier configuration, the preferences window has a breadcrumb navigation to quickly move between panels.
We even threw in a new logo at no additional cost!
- Leaner and meaner code.
Almost all code has been rewritten in one way or another, resulting in the fastest version of Screenshot Sender to date.
- Aero glass frames around windows cannot be properly captured for window-oriented screenshots.
The Windows GDI dates from the pre-Vista era and doesn't play well with the Aero effects. Not much we can do about this.
Lastly we would like to thank everyone for the patience. This has been a long time coming. We know that this has been one of the more popular scripts. If all goes well with this final version we will remove the beta tag and submit the script to the database.

P.S.: In case you were wondering about the change in build number from 5.0.0070 to 5.0.0018: we moved to another subversion server and are now using the new repository's revision number as build number.
