You can install Shutter 0.86.3 in Ubuntu via Shutter testing PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shutter-testing-team/ppa && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install shutter

To be able to use the Ubuntu One export feature, you also need to install libnet-dbus-glib-perl:

sudo apt-get install libnet-dbus-glib-perl

Also, some libraries don't come as dependencies for Shutter anymore so you cannot edit images without manually installing them. To get this feature (as well as some other features), you need to install the following packages:
sudo apt-get install libgoo-canvas-perl gnome-web-photo
