Shutter meets Cloud

We are happy to announce the release of Shutter 0.86.3.

Ubuntu One

Shutter 0.86.3 adds support for Ubuntu One, a cloud service by Canonical. Check out this video to see how uploading works:

Ubuntu One

Ubuntu One allows you to publish your files easily while always keeping control over all of your files.

Note: It only works with Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) or later. Additionally you need the package libnet-dbus-glib-perl to use it. If you have added our PPA, you can install the package via terminal – go to the downloads page otherwise:

sudo apt-get install libnet-dbus-glib-perl

New Icons

In case are using the latest Ubuntu release (10.04 – Lucid Lynx) with its new default theme, you will also appreciate the new icons (ubuntu-mono) that come with this version of Shutter – thanks to Duncan Lock.

Image Hosting

The (very reliable) image hosting service ubuntu-pics.de was discontinued (too much spam) so we removed this service from Shutter. Imagebanana.com and imageshack.us were broken as well and should work again now.

How to Get it

If you’ve subscribed to the Ubuntu repository, you’ll be prompted about an update being available automatically – otherwise, check the downloads page for individual packages. Maintainers of other distributions will be notified, so updates for that will be available soon.
