New bugfix release 0.88.2

Shutter 0.88.2 adds minor features, fixes some annoying bugs and updates translations.

New CLI-Parameter

It is now possible to prevent Shutter from adding new screenshots to the internal session which is useful when using Shutter in scripts. You have to use the new parameter -n (–no_session). Here is an example:

shutter --window=.*firefox.* -e -n -o %Y-%m-%d-%T.png

Improved Usability

You can now access Copy, Cut, Paste and Delete via right-click when using Shutter’s internal image editor.


The other changes are mainly bug fixes that make the experience even better. As an example, uploading via FTP is now working again.


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. Updates for other distributions will be available soon.
