What's new in version 2.8:
- New recorder UX/UI. It allows you to select the region of your recording such as other programs like Snipping Tool (region, window, full screen). Open Options > Application to enable the new recorder.
- Encoding with FFmpeg now will respect the variable framerate of your recording.
- The app will remember the output folder and filename for each export type (gif, video, images, and project).
- Other minor visual adjustments.
- Opening the Crop panel would cause a crash (if the new frame size was smaller).
- Getting new frames (by a new recording or by loading something else) while the Crop panel was open could throw an exception.
- Occasionally, the playback buttons (play/pause, next, etc.) would stay disabled (when it shouldn't).
- The video importer was causing a memory leak.
