For those of you who didn’t hear about it before, it’s probably time you have a look at it. Shutter is probably the most powerful screenshot-taking application available for GNOME, including countless features and several useful tools to take screenshots and manipulate them in any way possible.
I was too lazy to take them myself at the time they were introduced, so with a bit of delay here they are:
After 15 weeks of development, Shutter 0.85 has finally been released. Shutter is a feature-rich screenshot program. You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website – apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window.
The Ubuntu development team unleashed the fifth alpha version of the upcoming Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala), due for release in late October this year.
After a two-week delay, the Fedora Project team finally announced the release of Fedora 11, also known as Leonidas. The multitude of new features and improvements in this new version made the waiting time seem even longer, especially for dedicated fans. Well, at least the buzz from Ubuntu and Mandriva is slowly fading away, so Linux users can concentrate better on Fedora 11.
New in Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope (9.04) Alpha 6: the installer's revamped timezone map (see the fourth screenshot on the third row). The notification system was improved. Also, The GIMP has only one entry in the panel and not three, or two if you leave only the Toolbox opened (see the fourth screenshot on the first row).
I took these screenshots using a Kubuntu Intrepid Beta installation after performing a full dist-upgrade, at 1280x1024, with the nVIDIA 173 driver installed. I left all the settings in applications default, but I had to make fonts smaller and resize windows (in Konqueror for example), because they didn't look very well as default. The default theme used is Oxygen.
Although I'm a KDE fan, after the last Kubuntu release (8.04 - LTS) I was a little disappointed, so I decided to try Ubuntu 8.10, which is going to be the next release of this wonderful distribution, codenamed 'Intrepid Ibex'.
Kubuntu is a user friendly operating system based on KDE, the K Desktop Environment. With a predictable 6 month release cycle and part of the Ubuntu project, Kubuntu is the GNU/Linux distribution for everyone.
