- Update notification window will be minimized in taskbar and flash instead of showing on screen when new update is available while ShareX is already open
- Windows & Chrome related settings are moved to Application settings -> Integration tab
- FFmpeg recording timer will only start when recording is started instead of FFmpeg is started so that way it will accurately show duration of video
