The open source video transcoder Handbrake 0.10.1 was released recently with various fixes. The developers are working on the next major release Handbrake 1.0.
In an attempt to move away from our yearly release cycle, we have decided to start publishing interim fix releases. 0.10.1 marks the first of these releases. It’s focus is to fix some common bugs rather than introduce the new features we are working on in the background for 1.0.
Release highlights in Handbrake 0.10.1:
- Various bug fixes for all platforms and the core engine.
- Updated x265 to 1.5 which brings numerous bug fixes and some performance improvements.
