Shutter, a feature-rich screenshot program that allows users to capture nearly anything on their screen without losing control, is now at version 0.92.

The Shutter developers don't release nearly enough updates for this screenshot tool, especially if we take into consideration that it's probably the most advanced application of its kind on Linux. There are still a number of outstanding problems with the application, but they are minor.

The latest update for Shutter was released in June, but it was almost identical in complexity with the current build. Nothing really important has been implemented, with the exception of a few maintenance changes.

According to the changelog, the UbuntuOne, ImageBanana, and Ompldr plugins have been removed, a segmentation fault (core dumped) that occurred when trying to edit an image has been fixed, and the application no longer crashes after clicking "edit" while using certain icon themes

The best way to install the latest version of Shutter is with the help of the provided PPA. Just enter the following commands in a terminal (you will need to be root for this to work):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shutter/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install shutter

Check out the official announcement for a complete list of changes and new features. You can download Shutter 0.92 right now from Softpedia and you can also take a look at the review that we made for the previous release.
