Shutter 3.8

This update brings many new features and improvements for Shutter, a multi-purpose scheduling utility.

Here is quick summary of new features:

  1. Organize your schedules of events and actions into multiple presets, and run them in a chain using a new "Run Preset" action.

  2. Added a new Weekly event for triggering actions on specific days of the week.

  3. Schedule your actions to be executed at any specific date using the new date selection in the On Time event.

  4. Find out the result of your actions via a new Status column, a handy way to find out if some actions have failed.

  5. Additional quick actions, executable with a single click from your desktop: Turn Off Monitor, Mute Volume, Unmute Volume.

  6. Many small visual and operational improvements.

Cannot see images with https URLs in this or previous news posts. Probably a problem with the certificate.

An https image link was used in the post by mistake. The SSL certificate is self-signed at the moment, so browsers will normally display a warning because it is not signed by a trusted authority.

Thanks for reporting!

Ah, that explains it. BTW this post suffers from the same issue, in case you want to fix it too.
