WebView Snapshot 0.7

Yet another new version of WebView Snapshot!

Here’s the basic changelog:
  • CORE: Removed all the console cruft that
  • CLI: Use a new method parsing options. As a side benefit, you also have a –help parameter as well as simple type checking (wrong type == crash though.. still need to fix that)
  • GUI: Smaller binary and slightly faster execution since the console-only code won’t run.. at all

WebView Snapshot 0.6.2

I only released the first beta yesterday, and a bugfix release earlier this morning, and now we have a new feature release (but a small new feature, but a very useful one).

  • CORE: Add a new “constrain to height” parameter to the rendering engine – allows for screenshots of a certain height.
  • GUI: Expose the width and height properties in a new tab. Note: unless constrain to height is checked, the height property is only used by the engine to render and layout the webpage.
  • GUI: Expose the constrain parameter
  • CLI: Expose the height parameter
  • CLI: Expose the constrain parameter
  • GUI: Fix memory leak that happened when opening the About dialog.
Download Qt 4.5.2 from mirror (LGPL requirement.. please download from Qt Software instead)

First Beta of WebView Snapshot

The first beta release of WebView Snapshot is available for download immediately.

What works:
  • Saving a website as an image
  • Command line interface to save a website as an image
What doesn’t work:
  • The GUI version’s UI isn’t finished and doesn’t expose all of the options yet
  • Content rendered via plugins isn’t working yet. I’m working on it, promise!
  • No Linux or Mac builds yet.
We use the LGPL’ed Qt 4.5.2. I’d rather you download their source from their website, but if you must, and to comply with the LGPL, you can download Qt 4.5.2 now.
