"HandBrake's new live preview system lets users test settings to discover ripping or picture quality issues before doing a full encode -- a handy time-saver, to be sure. The application has also gotten better at reading different types of DVDs and selecting different angles on a DVD thanks to the new DVD reading library, libdvdnav. Developers also fixed a batch of decoding bugs that affected AAC audio and VC-1 video during transcoding.

"The app's presets have been radically tweaked to provide "a single, constant quality, High Profile preset with automated filtering and all the H.264 bells and whistles," rather than a bunch of subtly different presets like Film, Animation, and Television. The notoriously buggy presets for PSP, PS3, and Xbox 360 have been removed all together -- developers recommend simply using the Normal option instead."
