    i just used this tool in Ubuntu 13.10.
    I like the tool.
    with this i can make Playblast with version history
    but it would be better if you can fix following errors:

    Error 01
    when create new fx type
    open last preview button not working

    (if using custom path than its working fine)
    TypeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘__getitem__’

    Error 02
    publish latest version not working
    TypeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘__getitem__’

    Good Work
    Keep it up

    waiting for your new tools 🙂
