Easy screen captures [10.1] System
Use shift-command-3 (entire screen) and shift-command-4 (region) to take screenshots in OS X 10.1. The images are dropped on your desktop, saved in TIFF format, and they'll open in Preview when double-clicked.

SnapzProX offers more features for file formats, movie captures, and menu captures if you need those capabilities (and I do and I love the program ;-) -- but it's great to see the return of the easy-to-use built-in commands from Apple.

Does 'caps lock' key still grab the active 'window'

Does the Command + Shift + 4 key-combination allow you to grab a screen shot of either a region, or the active window depending on whether the caps lock is set?

I've just checked this and yes, Command+Shift+4 also grabs a selectable area of the screen.
Grabbing the active window by activating CapsLock + pressing this shortcut doesn't seem to work here, however.
