The Peek GIF screen recorder has a new release 0.9. The highlights of this release are the reduced temporary file size, improvements for Ubuntu users and many new translations. Peek can now be easily installed on Ubuntu using the Peek PPA on Launchpad. See the README for details on this. Also there have been some important fixes to integrate Peek better into the Unity desktop.
