All version history:
Version 1.0.0 - Beta 7:

  • Fixed a fault that prevented shortcut, arrow, control, shift (etc) keys being used in any list (would always deselect everything in the list).
  • Minor speed enhancements when load windows (due to data conversation improvements).
  • The setting “Time between captured screen shots” can now except values smaller than 1 second (for example, 0.5), allow better playback in videos.
  • Fixed a fault that would cause the “Save As” dialog to reappear after saving a session in the “Review Your Session” window.
  • Silent audio is now more accurate and no longer contains invalid audio samples (being read as not silent).
  • Minor renames to a few of the settings to make it more clear about the values they accept.
  • Added new setting “Allow logging of background screen shots” to the “Recording” section under “Settings” (defaults to false).
