Thanks to all the contributors and testers that helped us get to version 12!

New Features

  • Created basic layer movement functionality (up, down) by @affirVega in #2108

  • Added a new widget to allow the colorwheel to be more easily customized by #2202

Version 12.0.rc1 Beta

This is the beta for the version 12.0 release. We will be in beta for about a week unless major issues are discovered. It would be very helpful if you posted on the discussion linked to this release an let me know what platform you tested. This will significantly cut down on my testing and lead to a quicker release.

v11.0.0: Fix snap (#2255)

V11.0.0

New Features

  • We are dropping "semver" and going forward will be using a major and minor version. Each application release will increment the Major version and if there is an urgent fix it will be implemented as a minor release. The version before this was 0.10.0, which really does not make sense as we are a "production ready" application. This version will be 11.0, and the next will be 12.0 etc.

  • A config file checker has been implemented. If your config file contains error it will prompt to on how to fix them.

  • Some config file semantics changed so when you first run version 11, it is likely you need to resolve the config file errors. We try not to break the semantics of this file but some times we need to

  • The on-screen help menu has been clarified and dynamically updates the hotkeys based on user defined hotkeys.

  • DBus is no longer required for CLI options.

  • Flameshot can now be run in "one off" mode which means the background systray component is now optional. See the CLI details below.

  • The CLI has been completely refactored. With the new architecture we added the following:

    • The man page has been rewritten to reflect all the new options. The best place to learn about these new features is the man page or flameshot --help, but some notable new features will be outlined here.
    • CLI is now callable from MacOS.
    • CLI options are unified wherever possible. This means if an argument is added to "flameshot gui" it is also likely to be supported in "flameshot full".
    • --region is a new flag that allows users to specify the exact region to screenshot. It uses the same syntax as xrandr: WxH+x+y.
      • This is likely to be added to the launcher in the next release.
    • --accept-on-select This flag will save the image as soon as the mouse is released when selecting a region.
    • The CLI now supports pinning (--pin), uploading (--upload), and copying to clipboard (--clipboard).
      Note that in case one of these options (or --path, --raw also) is used, an Accept button is shown and the Save, Copy, Upload, Pin, Open With buttons are hidden.
  • MacOS now uses monochrome icon to match the system theme better.

  • The sidebar now shows the hexidecimal color value when the color picker is used:

  • The about screen lists system information and allows you to copy this for easy access in bug submission forms.

  • Every file format supported by your underlying system is now an option for file format when saving.

  • New tool added to invert a region:

  • Thickness of tools can now be set with the keyboard. Simply type a numerical value like "15" and you will see the indicator in the upper left.

  • New zoom capability has been added to the color picker to more precisely select a color.

  • Text alignment can now be set in the side bar.

  • File names can now contain '.'

  • Even if a button is hidden from the toolbar, it can still be activated via hotkey.

  • The uploader now gives users a confirmation box before uploading. This can be disabled. If you disable this and accidentally upload sensitive information, there is nothing we can do. It's recommended to leave the confirmation enabled. Also, a keyboard shortcut for upload has been enabled (Ctrl+U by default)

  • MacOS users can now bind a custom hotkey for taking a screenshot.

  • The config file parser has been reworked. It will now alert users if there is an error in their config. If a repair is possible, Flameshot attempts to repair the file.

    • We do our best not to break existing configs, but sometimes adding new features or removing old ones force this to change.
  • Double clicking can be used to copy the screenshot to the clipboard.

  • Added an option to enable anti-aliasing when zooming in on a pinned image.

  • Added completions for the fish shell

Bug Fixes

  • The border that indicates an object is moveable is no longer saved or copied with the underlying image.

  • The edit buttons no longer fall in the editable region when there are strange multi monitor geometries.

  • Optimizations to reduce lag on 8k and 4k screens.

  • All Qt5 deprecation warnings are fixed in preparation for Qt6.

  • Many small UI improvements (ie oversized scrollbars fixed, checkboxes occluded, etc).

  • Path handling has been improved.

  • Fixed an issue where running Flameshot for the first time on NixOS would fail to create the config file.

  • Fixed a problem with some window managers where Flameshot would lose focus and shortcuts would stop working.

Known Issues

  • Fractional scaling on linux is still not resolved. (But we have identified a workaround finally. Hope to merge soon.)

Contributors

I want to give special shout outs to some team members that made this release possible.

We are very excited by the many first time contributors that helped with this release. We are always looking for more people to contribute to Flameshot and are happy to provide mentorship if needed:

V11.0 Beta

This is the BETA release for version 11. As you will see below there were major refactorings to the internals of Flameshot. We did our best internal testing, but this particular beta is more likely to have issues than most.

Please use the attached discussion to report any issues or discuss this beta. This will make it much easier for us to manage the beta issues.

We will be in beta for 1-2 weeks depending on what kind of issues are found and then do the official release.

0.10.2 Release Notes

Fixes

This is a maintenance release to fix two pressing bugs caused by upstream changes. We have many great features in the works for version 11, but more about those another day.

Gnome Wayland Issue

Gnome made an upstream change in Gnome41 that deprecated the DBus method we use to capture the screen. The only work around is to use the xdg portal. Unfortunately this means on each and every screenshot on gnome, you have to give permission for Flameshot to capture the screen as shown below. This will likely affect all other screenshot programs except the native gnome one. There are discussions with the portal team to make a change so this is only requested once per application.

KDE Wayland Issue

KDE is also changing the upstream screenshot API, but they have a transition period. This adds some ground work for the new API.

0.9 Release Notes

Thanks to all the testers and contributors that helped make version 0.9! Special thanks to @thepurple and the team at Namecheap. We are very excited to have fixed many bugs and added new features in version 0.9.

Known Issues

  • Fractional scaling issues are not resolved. We are working with Qt upstream on this issue.
  • KDE Wayland requires modification to the Desktop file. (#1380)

New Features

  • Improved MacOS support. MacOS is now officially supported and we will resolve any reported issues on this platform.

  • Thanks to SignPath we are able to offer digitally signed windows releases.

  • Improved Wayland support on Gnome

    • Behind the scenes we configure flameshot to automatically run on xcb. This significantly improves the
      wayland experience. This resolves issues with multimonitor setups and copying to the clipboard
  • Ability to run flameshot on Sway

  • New option to allow the the clipboard image to be a jpeg instead of a png. This may reduce bandwidth when pasting the
    image into chat or email clients

  • New global shortcut menu. All actions hotkeys are fully customizable.

  • Ability to take "symmetric" selections by holding down the Shift key while resizing the selection.

  • The rectangle tool will now round the corners of the rectangles based on the current thickness

  • All imgur uploads are now tracked in the "Upload History" menu. This makes it much easier to delete of images off imgur
    or find the upload link later.

  • Added "check for new release" feature. This allows users on MacOS / Windows / and AppImages to easily check for updated versions.

  • New option for setting a "fixed save path". When this is enabled a user will no longer need to set the path for images
    that are saved.

Fixes

  • Under certain circumstance the circle count could get set to the wrong number with large numbers of undo / redo. This
    has been fixed.

  • Close after capture has been removed. This feature was not well implemented and lead to numerous bugs.
