The fourth development release towards Cheese 3.10 is now out for download and testing, published today, July 9, on the official GNOME FTP server.
In our opinion, Cheese 3.9.4 is the biggest release ever of GNOME's webcam client, including so many features and bug fixes that you can't even count. Jokes aside, below we've compiled a list with the most important changes added in Cheese 3.9.4:
• A touch event has been added for selecting effects:
