I think it was in the Release Notes for whatever version it was enabled 
in (v7?), but I haven't checked to see if it's in the LS Server Guide 
included with the download.

I haven't needed it myself, but my recollection is it's pretty 
straightforward:  use the "export snapshot from <obj>" command to 
produce an image of whatever you can put on a card.

This isn't new on the desktop of course, but earlier version of LC 
Server didn't include the graphics subsystem.

Hard to say. I have an on-rev account, but haven't set it up.  I would 
imagine that the mother ship is using the latest Stable build, no?

IIRC this has been around since at least v7, so the much-faster v8 and 
v9 engines should have it too.
