Release Notes: This release adds some command line options to specify the framebuffer to grab from, to bring another VT to the foreground to grab from, and to specify a delay before grabbing. It will detach from its terminal when switching VT to properly support grabbing from another VT, which potentially can have a different resolution, depth, or palette.
