WinSnap v3.1.4 - Improved Screen Capture

This maintenance release of WinSnap further improves its screen capture capabilities and addresses a few minor issues, as usual. This is likely the last release before I start working on WinSnap 4.0.

I've slightly improved the "Window" selection algorithm to eliminate accidental Taskbar and Desktop captures (f.e. when you click the Taskbar for some reason and then switch to WinSnap without activating a window).

VistaSwitcher 1.0.7 Beta - International Keyboard Layouts
