What's New in Version 1.5.11

This update comes with the following small improvements...:
- Shots can now be hidden individually
- Filenames are now appended with the Shot's creation date when dragged out so they don't replace shots with the same name (thank you, Günter)

...and squashes the following ghastly bugs:
- Fixed a bug where disabled system shortcuts were unavailable
- Fixed a bug with localizations - German now works again
- Removed some legacy code
- Fixed a crash when retrying to upload to ImageShack
- Fixed a bug where, when a shot was hidden and quickly shown again, it would vanish (also happened when dragging)
- 1.5.11: Fixes a bug in the german localization that would cause the Shots Browser to not be shown
- Known issue: sometimes, when closing a shot, it doesn't show up in the Shots Browser until a restart of ScreenFloat. I'm still looking into it.

Thank you for using ScreenFloat!
If you have a minute, please consider leaving a review on the Mac App Store - you would make my day.
Thank you :)
- Matt
