must be me but when I grab "https://bvckup2.com/files/giffer-0.9.1.exe" it isn't an .exe it is a .bat that appears to need to execute on that server to create the .exe ... am I missing something/everything?
[PS: new to git; be gentle....lol]

Damn. That's me, sorry. The .bat you were getting is a packaging script for making a release.
Give the link another try, it should be fixed now.

0.9.4 should fix this issue
It also reworks and lightens the guts a bit for faster saving.

0.9.5:

  • Henceforth it shall be known as μGiffer
  • Config and work files now go into %Temp%\uGiffer\ and %Temp%\uGiffer\Capture\ folders respectively
  • Cursor location is now captured correctly under rapid movement conditions
  • Final fix for green capture frame sometimes seeping through into the capture itself, again with uGiffer is moved around wildly

0.9.7 fixes a leak of 2 bitmap handles per frame, because apparently GetIconInfo() expects the caller to do the cleanup :-|

0.9.8 adds a countdown timer. The default is 3 seconds, can be changed via the countdown key in ugiffer.ini.

0.9.9 adds:

  • Ctrl-F1 for no-countdown start.
  • An option for retaining captured BMP frames until the next capture. This enables making an animation from captured frames using some other program or using them in some other way. By default the frames are deleted once the GIF is created, immediately after a capture.

0.9.10 adds:

  • Arrow keys - move window by 1px, Ctrl-Arrows - size it by moving bottom and right edges, Ctrl-Shift-Arrows - ditto, but top and left edges
  • The window can no longer be sized to be less than 1 px in height.
  • Distro is now in a form of a zip that includes both 32- and 64-bit version. Also, it is now hosted on iobureau.com instead of bvckup2.com

0.9.12 adds:

  • F3 - make a screenshot and put it on clipboard. Unlike Alt-PrtSc this also grabs the mouse cursor.
  • Ctrl-~ (top-left key of the main keyboard area) - stop recording, create a gif even if the app doesn't have the focus.
  • F12 - open configuration folder, the one with settings.ini
  • Ctrl-F12 - open work folder, that's where captured images go prior to being assembled into the gif

Also, there's now an "user guide" in the window's system menu. Press Alt-space to get there.
