The latest version 3.0 seems more like 2.7 at best. The biggest omission still is a lack of undo. In the day and age of multiple undos, the lack of even a single undo seems very, very dated.
From their online manual dates 2006-2009:
"Revert: The revert feature lets you revert back to one of the previous Saves you made in the event you make a mistake . . . Undo will be added to a future version of ShutterBug."
I bought two copies two years ago: one for me and one for a client for self-maintenance.
It worked okay for what I needed to do at the time, but without undo, it kills any creative flow, and it constantly put me on edge fearing that I'd screw up the layout, or worse.

I tried the demo and hoped for better results out of the gate. It had minimal effect size-wise on a 9MB file--9.07MB down to 9.02MB-- a 0.5% reduction. Invisible buttons (with Glow filter) became black objects obscuring the graphics below. Text that was converted to outlines became blobby.
Trying some settings changes, I was able to drop the 9MB file down to 4.6MB, but that seemed mostly due to sound compression. It still had the graphic anomalies above.
I can tweak sound externally for similar results.
According to their site, the $99 version is for personal use only. To use it commercially, you need to purchase the $299 version--actually worth it to me if it worked out of the box and significantly reduced my bandwidth for my larger projects and less time having to tweak my work.
I see potential, but no use for me at this time.
I started programming with 3.5k of usable memory on my VIC-20. The MU logo on this page is 4.8k. Optimization is always in my thoughts.
