  • Removed apply theme button as theme changes will now be applied automatically
  • Removed experimental custom theme check box, so now it is always enabled if custom theme is enabled
  • Improvements to settings save/load system to avoid unexpected setting resets:
    • When settings are saved to file, it is stored in Windows hard disk cache, so when electricity is lost or PC is not shutdown properly while settings are already in hard disk cache then this was causing the latest settings file and backup of previous settings file to be corrupted, whereas now ShareX bypasses hard disk cache while saving settings and copying backups to avoid this issue *Added two more fallback options when loading settings: temp and last weekly backup file. So if the latest and previous setting files somehow manage to become corrupt then as a last resort ShareX will load the last weekly backup of the settings file. New settings load fallback order is:
      • Latest setting file: DocumentsShareXApplicationConfig.json
      • Temp latest setting file: DocumentsShareXApplicationConfig.json.temp
      • Backup or previous setting file: DocumentsShareXBackupApplicationConfig.json
      • Last weekly backup file: DocumentsShareXBackupApplicationConfig-2020-05-W22.json
  • Uploader passwords are now encrypted using DPAPIA while saving settings
    • Important: If you would like to backup your settings then use “Application settings window -> Settings tab -> Export button” instead of copying DocumentsShareX folder, otherwise you may have problems with encrypted passwords
  • Improvements to gradient maker window which is mainly used for image effects:
    • Added gradient presets list*
    • Allow creating gradient even when start (0%) and end (100%) gradient stop is missing
    • Gradient stops will be automatically ordered by location
    • Added “Reverse” button to be able to reverse locations or gradient stops
    • Show colors as icon in gradient stop list which also helps seeing transparent colors because of checkered background

    • Redesigned image effects window
    • Register .sxie extension for ShareX image effects
    • Added -ImageEffect “filePath” CLI command, which is what .sxie extension use
    • Added image effect packager (“Packager” button in image effects window), which lets you create .sxie files. Advantage of packager compared to previous .json export is package can contain image files required for image effect to function, but also ease of importing image effects for users which is just double clicking .sxie file*
      • You can check out the examples in the #image-effects channel in our Discord server or show your image effects to us*
    • Added “ImageEffects” folder to ShareX personal folder
    • Added %ShareXImageEffects% path variable which will be used in all image effects which requires file or folder path, so when you supply path which is inside ShareX image effects folder then that section of the path will be automatically replaced with %ShareXImageEffects%. Reason for this is, if you share image effect to another user and if that users image effects folder is in custom location then path will still match correctly. Image effect packager also making sure that you can’t select assets folder outside of ShareX image effects folder to make sure that paths will match correctly
    • Added interpolation mode option to “Image” (previously called “Image watermark”) image effect, for example Nearest neighbor is handy when you want to make image border with 1px length image and extend it to fill whole image length, without this option extended image was looking blurry because of anti aliasing while drawing enlarged image
    • Added compositing mode option to “Image” image effect, for example Source copy option is handy when you want to draw image border corner which is rounded and contains transparency, those transparent pixels will be drawn directly without blending with image underneath that way you can make sure corners are transparent

    • Added size aspect ratio support to “Image” image effect when 0 is used for width or height
    • Added text rendering mode option to “Text watermark” image effect
    • Added “Text” image effect, it allows drawing text with gradient outline and shadow*
    • Added “RGB split” image effect (by @L1Q)
