    Just saw this today. :D

    Announcing SnagIt 7.2

    This new version offers enhanced desktop integration and an all-new task pane giving easy access to SnagIt's editing options. SnagIt's enhanced Web capture can now capture all files of any type, including image, audio, video and even custom file formats.
    See what's new in 7.2

    New Firefox Extension for SnagIt
    Browsing with Firefox these days? Perhaps both Firefox and Internet Explorer? Well, now SnagIt is built into both browsers, so the choice is yours.

    Hey Eldar,

    Some more:

    Quotes:
    10 January, 2005: SnagIt v7.2.1
    Fixed Window Autoscroll error on certain hardware configurations.
    Fixed Window Autoscroll problem in Firefox and Microsoft Word where scrolling would start at the current cursor location rather than the top of the page.
    Fixed the Evaluation Message Center window so that it will now only appear with the SnagIt UI or the SnagIt Preview Window. Previously, it would appear when SnagIt launched, which is a problem if SnagIt starts minimized.

    Hi,

    What I forgot to tell: some more good news ;)

    TechSmith replaced the file gdiplus.dll as they promised they would do in Januari; thanks TechSmith ! :)

    (well, maybe XP users already replaced it manually, but I on my W98SE box decided to wait).
    I guess you might remember the issue a few months back about the GDI-vulnerability. There was a tool to check your system whether you have a vulnerable version; I forgot where I got it from...

    Anyhow, in the latest SnagIt version it was indeed replaced.
    Report from my file integrity checker NISFileCheck:

    Added more filters for capturing images in Web capture, such as filtering based on the dimension or aspect ratio.
    Added Rich Text to the Text Tool.
    Added file association capability to SnagIt.
    Added this file association support into Windows Explorer. Now, SnagIt Editor and Batch Conversion can be launched from Windows Explorer.
    Added the standard close button to the Evaluation Message dialogs.
    Updated the gdiplus.dll to the latest version to avoid buffer overrun in jpeg processing.
    Enhanced web capture to allow the capture of audio, video and other types of files.
    Enhanced the Paint Tools to allow custom colors to be set for each Paint Tool.
    Changed the size of the gripper handles for the Paint Tools. They are now larger.
    Changed the printer scaling dialog.

    Hi Jan,
    Indeed, excellent news and thank you TechSmith. :)

    Sure, I downloaded this tool here, which was posted by DCS.
    Been looking for it, but can't find it anymore. :doubt:
    Maybe I'm not looking hard enough. :D

    Thanks again. ;)
