I'm pleased to announce the 1.6.0 release of Xfce4 Screenshooter. This cycle was quite long 
because I had some exams and the number of implemented features is bigger than usual.

First, there is a brand new interface based on a review by Fabrice Viale : it is simpler and more 
polished. This new interface also allows you to choose whether the mouse cursor should be 
captured and whether the application should be closed after taking the screenshot.

It is now possible to save screenshots on any remote share supported by GVFS: ftp, sftp, 
samba... You just need to connect to a share or a distant computer using Gigolo or gvfs-connect 
and it will be displayed in the sidebar of the save dialog.

This release also features the possibility to host screenshots online, on ZimageZ. You just need to 
set up an account on their website and you will then be able to upload your screenshots to 
ZimageZ directly from Xfce4 Screenshooter. This feature is still a bit experimental and will be 
improved in the next release: for example accents in the user name or password cause a fail 
during the upload...

There also some other small changes which can be found in the changelog. I would like to thank 
Jannis Pohlmann (for his help concerning jobs and threads), Fabrice Viale (for his interface review), 
Mike Massonnet and Enrico Tröger (for their various patches) ,Yves-Alexis Perez  and Ali Abdallah 
(for the testing and the suggestions). And last but not least, the translation team who did a great 
job by adding and updating a lot of translations of the application and of the documentation.
