Posted by: Glenn

The HandBrake team has announced the release of HandBrake 0.9.0, a new version of their popular DVD to MPEG-4 converter. According to the developers, this major release includes almost 300 changes to the code base. Some of the top new features include:

  User experience is improved through a re-envisioned Mac interface and a Windows interface that's been rebuilt from the ground up.

  Picture quality is improved through better image scaling, better deinterlacing, new filters for denoising, deblocking, inverse telecine, and new presets devoted to high quality settings.

  Speed improvements due to updated copies of x264 and ffmpeg. This includes improved multi-threaded encoding for the iPod.

  Compatibility is improved through new presets for devices like the iPhone and PSP. As well, HandBrake now supports DTS as an audio source and has limited support for .VOB and .TS file containers as input. Most excitingly, HandBrake can now output to the Matroska (MKV) file container.

  Stability has been improved due to countless bug fixes. (Including audio drop and mp2 issues). Handbrake also has optional support for MP4 files larger than 4 gigabytes.

HandBrake 0.9.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. The download weighs in at 5.5MB.
