Shutter – easily the best screenshot tool ever created – has finally shimmied out a new release, packed full of crazy new goodness for us all to enjoy.

UbuntuOne file uploading
Essentially all the UbuntuOne plugin for Shutter does is save the file to a specified synchronised UbuntuOne folder – which UbuntuOne notices and proceeds to upload. It’s nifty in that it means you don’t have to manually do anything – but you’ll still have to head to your UbuntuOne folder to grab a public link.

Mono Icon
Ubuntu Lucid/Maverick testers will be pleased to see Shutter finally gains a monochrome panel icon. Sadly Shutter have no intentions of morphing the tray icon into an indicator applet so a monochrome tray icon is as close to panel consistency as we’re going to get.

Image Hosting
Irregularities and instabilities with the default hosting services have been fixed – and has been dropped altogether. 

What else would I like to see? 
Imgur uploading would be ace, bit in the mean time see Gimgur for that.
