We invested over 500 hours of development time in that version, with that much time there were bound to be a few bugs in there. Today at the end of the year ... [More] we bring you a bugfix release, which should solve most reported bugs and even bring a few small features, you can see the full changelog below. [Less]

Admittedly, we’re a bit early with our gift. But as a piece of software cannot be wrapped and aligned beautifully with fancy boxes under the tree, we rather hand it over to you right now, so that you can start having fun with the new version before spending time with your beloved friends and family.

Today we present you the second release candidate for Greenshot 1.2.9 which should fix a lot of issues with 1.2.8 and add some new features. One of the most significant changes is that from this version onwards we sign Greenshot with a code signing ... [More] certificate. This should helps personal users and companies to feel more secure knowing the installed software is really from us. We will write a separate blog on what we things we do to keep Greenshot secure without adware, malware and viruser. Other significant changes: Imgur upload gives 403 errors Jira API doesn't work anymore As always you can download it from our downloads page, in this case via the version history. By the way: please be sure to always download Greenshot from our official website, which is http://getgreenshot.org/.

We have recently published another bugfix release, fixing two annoying problems many of you might have encountered during the last days. Broken anonymous upload to Imgur: a lot of users reported that they can no longer upload to Imgur anonymously. ... [More] Unfortunately, Imgur simply deprecated and shut down the old version of their API, without announcing or even documenting this step. We could have reacted in time if we had known about the change before it was made; with the change not even being documented, we have lost several days analyzing the issue. We would have preferred if all of you had been able to use Greenshot with Imgur as you always did, and of course we would have preferred to implement something useful in that time. Actions like this make working with 3rd-party-APIs quite painful, for developers and for users. We’re glad the issue is fixed, but we are not amused, Imgur. :-/ Greenshot sometimes slow to respond: another issue inflicted by a third party. You may have noticed that our website (currently hosted at Sourceforge) is unavailable quite often lately, as the Sourceforge systems often have performance issues or even downtimes. Sourceforge’s project web is also used by Greenshot to check for new versions. Unfortunately, the implementation of our update check was not ideal, so that the enormous number of failed requests slowed down the program. Even though we worked around this issue by fixing our update check, the instability of our website is one of the things we are generally quite unhappy with at Sourceforge; we have started to move parts of our development infrastructure over to Github. This website also be moved as soon as the migration is finished. These two major issues are fixed by the latest update, you can download it from our downloads page. By the way: please be sure to always download Greenshot from our official website, which is http://getgreenshot.org/. A lot of platforms offer downloads of free and open source software as well, but there have been several cases of installer files being corrupted or bundled with malware. So: always get greenshot from getgreenshot.org :) Here is the complete changelog for the bugfix release: [Less]

So here is another bugfix release, important especially for those using Greenshot’s Picasa plugin to send screenshots directly to Picasa. Google is deprecating the OAuth 1.x authentication API on the 20th of April, which means that the Picasa plugin ... [More] released with Greenshot 1.2.5 will no longer work – we have changed the plugin to work with the new API as of Greenshot 1.2.6. There is also a bug fix for the Box plugin, there were problems authenticating to box.com, this should be fixed with 1.2.6. Additionally we added a small feature which allows you to drag and drop images directly from a Google image search in a browser onto the Greenshot editor. You can read detailed information in the change log below or download Greenshot 1.2.6 right now. CHANGE LOG: All details to our tickets can be found here: https://greenshot.atlassian.net 1.2.6.7-RELEASE Bugs Resolved: * BUG-1769: Switched to OAuth 2 for Picasa Authentication, OAuth 1.x will be terminated as of 20th of April 2015. * BUG-1770: Fix problems when a font doesn't want to draw itself. * Bug 1774: Problems logging in to Box.com Features add: * FEATURE-838: Added support for dragging an image from google image search results directly into the editor.

When we started Greenshot’s Facebook page back in 2009, it was a brilliant thing for us to have… obviously, a lot of our users were using Facebook as well, and it was a good way to send out project-specific updates to a peer that showed interest in ... [More] Greenshot (i.e. liked the page). After all, RSS and Atom feeds are not for fancy enough for everyone – so it was a good idea to offer an alternative. Throughout the years, Facebook has changed a lot, especially with regards to how they handle posts from pages. If you have been using Facebook for some years, you may remember the time when they took more control over your stream and started to silently filter out many posts – in order to protect their users from being over-flooded with posts, they said (which still does not explain why even feeds with a very low post frequency are being filtered). So, Facebook’s idea is that we should pay for our friends (or fans or likers, whatever you want to call it) to actually see our posts, even though these people had actively indicated interested in our project. Well, we do understand that even a company like Facebook needs to generate some revenue, but not on our expense. We are not some creepy marketing agency, baiting for social likes and shares in order to sell stuff afterwards. We are a small open source project driven by few people in their spare time, giving away quality software for free – there is no such thing as a marketing budget, obviously. Sure, we could continue to use Facebook for free – but it really does a bad job for publishing information. That’s why we decided that we will no longer actively maintain Greenshot’s Facebook page. The page will still be available, and of course you are welcome to like and share – but there won’t be any more updates, also comments and messages are deactivated. We hope that’s okay for you. If not, sorry for the inconvenience – it’s nothing personal, really. We suggest to follow up on our blog on getgreenshot.org (there’s an RSS feed also), or to follow Greenshot on Twitter. For bugs, feature requests or support requests, please use our ticketing system. [Less]

Finally! For those of you who celebrate Christmas, here is a little Christmas present from us. For the rest, here is a little present for you, for no particular reason :) If have a look at our blog regularly or follow us on Twitter or another social ... [More] media channel, you probably have noticed that we have been eagerly working on release candidates for Greenshot 1.2. The new version comes just in time before 2015 is about to start; after three release candidates and a lot of bug fixes, improvements and enhancements in between. So, what's new, you ask? Here we go, just to name a few: Speech bubbles, a.k.a. call-outs: we know that many of you have been waiting for those, and we are glad to see them in the editor ourselves - the ideal tool to annotate a specific element with text. Incrementing labels: ever needed to point out several steps of a workflow like "first click here, then there, and finally over there, ..."? Probably... well, you no longer have to take care of the enumeration with text boxes manually. Incrementing labels are the much smarter and more beautiful solution :) Torn edge and border settings: we have improved both features by providing extra settings for them, e.g. you can select which edges of your image should be torn. Region mode accessibility: it is now possible to select a screenshot region with the keyboard, which allows exact and easy fine-tuning of a selected region, and of course allows the feature to be used at all for people having problems with handling a pointing device like mouse or touchpad. Of course, that's not all - way too much to describe everything in detail here... we have also fixed quite some bugs and usability issues and we have a new language aboard, welcome Latvian (kudos to Kārlis Kalviškis for supplying the translation) as well as updates for many other languages. Thanks again to everyone who keeps supporting us by submitting translations, feature requests, bug reports and donations! We really appreciate your support a lot, your help keeps the project going. :) So much for now, we're getting ready for Christmas and new year's eve now. Have a good time everybody, and have fun with Greenshot - the latest version is always available at http://getgreenshot.org/downloads/ And of course, here is the complete change log: All details to our tickets can be found here: https://greenshot.atlassian.net Features: * Added the possibility to select the region to capture by using the keyboard, use the cursor keys to move the cursor (ctrl-key speeds up the movement) and the enter key to mark the start and ending. * Added support for another clipboard format "Format17" (aka CF_DIBV5) which could improve the result of the "open image from clipboard" and drag&drop actions. * Editor: a resize effect with settings window has been added. * Editor: a settings window for the torn-edge effect has been added, the settings will be stored. * Editor: a settings window for the drop shadow effect has been added, the settings will be stored. * OneNote: Enabled and enhanced the OneNote destination, so we can test this and see if it's worth releasing. * External command: If a command outputs an URI this will be captured and placed on the clipboard, the behaviour currently can only be modified in the greenshot.ini * FEATURE-184, FEATURE-282, FEATURE-486: Image editor now has a speech bubble * FEATURE-281, FEATURE-669, FEATURE-707, FEATURE-734: Image editor now has auto incrementing labels * FEATURE-757: Greenshot will now store the last used region in the greenshot.ini, which makes it also available after a restart. * FEATURE-758: Due to the fact that more and more high DPI displays are used, we added a setting to change the icon size. * FEATURE-776: Improvement of the torn edge settings dialog * FEATURE-777: Improvement of the font family settings, also changed the used font for every family making it easier to find your font. Changes: * Optimized Greenshots update check to use even less traffic by checking the time-stamp of the update feed before downloading it. * JIRA: With JIRA 6.x using the SOAP (Webservice) API the access has gotten really slow, we improved the performance slightly by loading some information parallel. (In Greenshot 2.x we will move to another API.) * Dynamic destination context-menu: If a destination has child items the parent is still selectable and executes the default export, we now no longer repeat the parent in the children. * Dynamic destination context-menu: We are now leaving the sorting to the destination code, this allows us to e.g. show the default printer on top of the list. Bugs Resolved: * BUG-1559, BUG-1643: Repeating hotkeys are now prevented. * BUG-1610: Image editor: 'Obfuscate' and 'Highlight' and more, now should rotate / resize correctly. * BUG-1619: Image editor: Autocrop now also considers the elements. * BUG-1620: Greenshot crashing Chrome running in 'Windows 8 Mode' * BUG-1653: Accessibility issues: Editor "File" menu entry can't be activated and missing translations * BUG-1667: removed horizontal alignment of textbox in input mode, as it caused problems with textbox focus and could not be implemented consistently anyway (no vertical alignment possible) * BUG-1671: Fixed error that occurred when double-clicking systray icon before the first time a screenshot was saved to file * BUG-1686: Shadow (drop shadow or torn edge) grows if a filter (highlight etc) is used and an element is moved around * BUG-1688: While drawing a textbox there are black vertical lines inside * BUG-1695: Fixed an issue with processing the response from Imgur, which caused the error "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: key" * BUG-1699: UI jumps when Textbox or SpeechBubble tools are selected, and changing to another tool. (also the other way around) * BUG-1700: IE capture only works once * BUG-1709: Alignment of the text and speech-bubble wasn't always correctly saved in the .greenshot file * BUG-1710: After resizing the canvas the edges had a slightly different color (1px) * BUG-1719: color dialog didn't accept HTML color names ... and a lot more small bug fixes to make Greenshot more stable. Languages: * New language: Latvian (thanks to Kārlis Kalviškis for providing the translation) * Updates for Ukrainian, Japanese and Italian translation [Less]
