About this repository

This repository is for Greenshot 1.3.x

For users the major changes since 1.2.x are:

  • A newer and more modern configuration UI
  • Due to the update of .NET 4.5 a lot of bugs are solved
  • Added Windows 10 destinations, OCR & share
  • Better DPI support
  • Faster development
  • Bug fixes

For developers, the major changes since 1.2.x are:

  • Updated to .NET 4.5.x
  • Moved logging from log4net to Dapplo.Log which is a very simple logger
  • Using Dependency Injection (Inversion of Control), via Dapplo.Addons which bases upon MEF.
  • Add-ins (formerly plug-ins) can just place attributes on classes to be loaded and injected.
  • Started using WPF via MVVM, provided by Caliburn.Micro via Dapplo.CaliburnMicro
  • Added Dapplo.Config which provides language & configuration support.
  • Added a configuration UI, which is build together via composition. Meaning add-ins just need to implement the correct class and use the correct attributes to be visible inside the new configuration.
  • Using Dapplo.HttpExtensions as the default HTTP client library, which should make it easier to use cloud services.
  • Fody-Costura is supported for add-ins, which make it possible to simply embed the needed dependencies as dlls.
  • Moved most native windows code to a separate project called Dapplo.Windows which makes it easier to test
  • Moved graphics code to a separate project, where benchmark tests are possible.
