Hi all,

KSnapshot 2015.12 has been released. The relevant source package
information can be found below:

* Mirrorlist: http://download.kde.org/stable/apps/KDE4.x/utils/ksnapshot-2015.12.tar.xz.mirrorlist
* SHA2-256: 9186252d478e30da9e21dcab3c1e30e167980a122dc609e435682d316b74508e

KSnapshot has been deprecated in favour of Spectacle and will no
longer be maintained.

IMPORTANT: This is an important packaging update release. This release
has no code changed from the KDE Applications 15.08 release; however,
this package installs its own KHotkeys file. This conflicts with the
PrintScreen KHotkeys file that is included in the current KHotkeys
package, and therefore this version of KSnapshot has an explicit
dependency on the (yet unreleased) KHotkeys Plasma/5.5.

Distribution packagers who are shipping Plasma 5.5 are advised to
upload this package on their repositories simultaneously with any
subsequent Plasma 5.5 releases (both beta and final). Updating to this
package now is not possible - there is a file conflict with the
current KHotkeys package. Not updating to this package when Plasma 5.5
(specifically, the KHotkeys package) is installed will result in
breaking Print Screen functionality; it will not be possible to launch
KSnapshot by pressing the Print Screen key.

Spectacle (which will see it's first release as part of Applications
15.12 in mid-Decemeber) already carries its own KHotkeys
configuration, and therefore no further action is required for
