"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."
