I'm looking for a shapefile containing the locations of all the world's capitals as of (around) 2016?


Natural Earth provides a populated places layer which has a capital attribute.


Another obvious place to get names and location is the geonames website. If you go to the download page you can download data just as cities or the whole dataset which includes everything.
