A new version of popular screenshot utility ‘Shutter’ has been released.

Shutter 0.87.3 finally sees the ability to capture the ‘real’ cursor image in use. Shutter previously only used the ‘standard’ cursor image.

Shutter can now capture 'real' cursors that are in use

Another new addition is a ‘Show in folder’ menu entry to enable quick access to the location of a recently taken screenshot.

Other bugs fixed in the release include support for gnome-web-photo and minor UI changes to the ‘time out’ men.


A PPA providing the latest release for Ubuntu 8.04, 10.04, 10.10, 11.04 and 11.10 is available @launchpad.net/~shutter/+archive/ppa
