Shutter 0.88 released and PPA installation instructions included
What is new shutter 0.88
This release improves Shutter’s upload mechanism, adds new features and fixes bugs.
Due to the rewrite of major parts of the code it was never easier to write an upload plugin for Shutter. Hence we added a bunch of new image hosting services.
Is is now possible to specify the filename when using Shutter via command line. Here is an excerpt from Shutter’s manual page:
Specify a filename to save the screenshot to (overwrites any profile-related
Supported image formats: You can save to any popular image format (e.g. jpeg, png,
gif, bmp). Additionally it is possible to save to pdf, ps or svg.
Please note: There are several wildcards available, like
%Y = year
%m = month
%d = day
%T = time
$w = width
$h = height
$name = multi-purpose (e.g. window title)
$nb_name = like $name but without blanks in resulting strings
$profile = name of current profile
$R = random char (e.g. $RRRR = ag4r)
%NN = counter
The string is interpretted by strftime. See "man strftime" for more examples.
As an example: shutter -f -e -o ‘./%y-%m-%d_$w_$h.png' would create a file named
'11-10-28_1280_800.png' in the current directory.
Particularly interesting is the possibility to export directly to PDF without any further processing.
