Release notes 

Great things come to those who wait. Shutter 0.80 brings a host of new and important features, existing plugins, bugfixes and translation updates.
Undo / Redo support in the editor

Shutters screenshot editor now features undo capability - making it much more forgiving against accidents, and allowing for easier experimentation. This also makes it a rather complete screenshot-oriented image editor, and as far as we know, the first of its kind on Linux ;)
New tools in the editor

The editor also received several useful tools - arrow shape, highlighter, numbered tags, crop tool, and a resizable canvas.

The arrow is a tool of it's own now - previously it was an image, which wasn't convenient to access frequently and had some complications when using. Now it's available on the left toolbar, and functions similarly to the line too.

The highlighter tool, as it's name implies, is useful for highlighting. While a pencil tool with a large line width, some transparency and a yellow color does the same job, it was inconvenient to switch the color setup from the standard to the 'highlighting' mode and back. Now the highlighter is a tool of it's own, with a nice cursor, making it easier and faster to highlight. Big thanks to Richard Querin of the Inkscape Screencasters fame for providing us with the nice highlighter icon.

Numbered tags - ah, what Shutter was made originally for - aiding in documentation process. Numbered tags stamp a number (that's auto-incremented each time you use it) on the screenshot, allowing you to clearly detail the steps needed to take in a graphical interface.

Crop tool allows you to crop your screenshot ala advanced selection tool for screen capture. You draw a box of the area you'd like to leave, crop, and everything outside of the box is removed with the canvas auto-sized to the new dimensions.

The canvas is now resizable - allowing you to extend it's dimensions beyond the original screenshot resolution for moar more stuff, or sizing it down for less stuff. Do as you please! You are the king/queen.

Besides that, the editor also received various improvements like a built-in fullscreen mode and an option to clear all the objects you've added. The ability open your recently used files has been added to the main window as well.
New plugins

That's right! Now you've got more neat effects to apply to your screenshots.

Watermark - quite a common function. Add your copyrights, location, project website on your screenshot - now without complex pixel manipulation and within Shutter.

Reflection - applies a fading reflection at the bottom of the image, giving it a stylish look.

Distortion adds the "fish eye" effect by bulging out the middle of the image.

3d rotate - allows you to rotate the image on all three (x, y, z) axis in 3d. Add a new depth to your screenshots!
