    •  23 Nov 2008 22:59

      Release Notes: The code has been refactored and cleaned up extensively to ease maintenance and bugfixes. The cursor-flickering bug has been fixed, color-space conversion has been corrected, detection of compositing window managers has been improved, and libjack is now linked normally during compilation instead of being dlopened later.

        Release Notes: Encoded files now include an Ogg skeleton bitstream and have the .ogv extension (as per the latest recommendations, over the use of the Ogg container format ).

        •  17 Dec 2007 21:21

          Release Notes: This release has configurable, global shortcuts and the ability to rescue (encode later) crashed sessions. It now draws a frame that surrounds the capture area (this functionality existed on the front-ends, but it was a lot less accurate). Many bugs of varying seriousness were fixed.

          •  18 Aug 2007 09:19

            Release Notes: This version corrects some critical bugs, removes the need for Xdamage to be present even when it is not used, and introduces a new feature titled follow-mouse, where the capture area can follow the mouse cursor as it moves.
