Release Notes

This update is largely a maintenance release consisting of a number of bug fixes and improvements – that being said there's some pretty nifty new stuff thanks to our contributors:

@karaggeorge, @albinekb, @kevva, @sallar and @stevenpeniche.

  • There's now an option to turn off the global record shortcut. It's useful for people that had it conflict with other apps. This is a temporary solution until we add ability to specify custom keyboard shortcuts.
  • Kap now activates the system "Do Not Disturb" feature while recording. If you don't want this, you can turn it off in the Preferences window.
  • A new experimental option to hide desktop icons while recording. This can be useful if your desktop is messy or if you have sensitive files there.
