UPDATE: Kazam was accepted to Ubuntu Universe. If you are running Precise Pangolin, the use of PPA is unnecessary. Current version number had to be changed to 1.0.4, because of Ubuntu requirements. If you had 1.2.x version installed, simply remove it and reinstall.
Kazam Screencaster reached certain maturity and I am happy to announce a stable 1.20 release. Codenamed as NCC-1701D it hit PPA repositories just yesterday.
For Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot and Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin you can use a stable PPA repository:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kazam-team/stable-series $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install kazam
Ubuntu packages were also tested on Linux Mint and you shouldn’t have any problems running Kazam on Linux Mint 12. I also tested Kazam on Fedora 16, everything should work as expected, but you will have to solve all the dependencies by yourself, because I cannot provide a working RPM package.
All of the issues reported so far were fixed. A short list of smaller new things that were added:
- region size is now displayed in the region window,
- screen resolution change is detected and video source selector is now updated accordingly,
- debug option –debug was added it should be used when reporting bugs, expect a lot of debug output,
- countdown window and about dialog box made prettier,
- App indicator menu and Gtk Status Icon were slightly changed,
- various changes in packaging, some RPM info added to setup.py
For the end, the latest screen shot from Precise Pangolin and a rumor that Kazam was uploaded to Ubuntu Universe repository and is waiting for review.
