Shutter 0.93 released

This release improves Shutter’s Dropbox integration and adds support for

Improved Dropbox integration

Kudos go to Marco van Hilst who rewrote (and improved/fixed) the existing plugin. Here is why (bug report):

The current Dropbox plugin used the deprecated Public folder functionality of Dropbox. Dropbox dropped support for the Public folder for free accounts that registered after the drop deadline in favor of individual share link creation.

The current Perl library binding for Dropbox’s RESTful HTTP API, Net::Dropbox::API, is old and therefore does not support the new /share and /media functions that generate proper links to the files. Attempting to upload via Dropbox with the plugin in its current state will successfully upload to the Public folder of one’s Dropbox, but will yield an invalid link that will display a 404 when opened in a browser.


Added support for

    Would it be possible to change permission from “Access to all folders and files of any type anywhere in your Dropbox” to “Access to its own folder in your Dropbox. The app will be able to access everything within and know the path to that folder, but won’t be able to access anything outside of it” ?
