freewaretester: The video recording function records sound, you might look to Screenshot Captor for scrolling, and the image editor issue you mention can be configured. Please post in forums if you have difficulty.

The latest version of ShareX is 10.1.0 but this release doesn't have a separate archived portable version- the developer has chosen to include a portable mode installation in the installer.

What's new? We have released an updated 2.8.14 installer (http) for Microsoft Windows. This one fixes the crash on window resize and the missing icons bugs - all by updating the included GTK+ library to 2.24.24.

Still unsolved are the missing spacing character in the zoom drop down and the disappearing background on high zooms (updating the Pango and Cairo libraries that are didn't change anything there), investigations continue.

Please continue to report bugs, we can't fix what we don't know about.
