About this repository
This repository has all the sources of Greenshot, but we have multiple branches of which three should be important to know about:
develop This is the future of Greenshot, currrently highly unstable but the only place to develop new functionality.
master Is the current release, in our case 18.104.22.168
feature/1.2.9 Greenshot 1.2.9, which has the state of being a release candidate
You can find the latest release and unstable builds here
Developing for Greenshot
We develop Greenshot with Visual Studio 2015 and tested our solution on Visual Studio Professional 2015. It should be possible to compile Greenshot directly after a checkout, when a nuget package restore is made. What doesn't work are the plug-in for cloud storage (like Box, Dropbox, Imgur, Picasa and Photobucket) as these need "API keys". These keys are not in our Greenshot repository, if you want to develop on one of the plug-ins you will need to create you own keys by registering with theses services as a developer. I will add a description here later to explain how include your API keys so you can develop.
