HandBrake 0.10.0 released Saturday, Nov 22, 2014
quote:

"In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they're not." - Yoggi Berra

Release Highlights
0.10 releases with hundreds of new features, changes, and bug fixes. To highlight a few:

Encoders
We are introducing several new encoders with this release and replacing others.

Intel QuickSync Video
is a hardware based H.264 encoder that is available on Intel CPUs. Currently, QSV is only supported on Windows but we hope to bring this to Linux users in the future. Thanks to the good people at Intel for making this possible!

H.265
is now available through x265 1.4. While this encoder is still fairly new, we have seen some promising results come out of it. It's still under heavy active development and is only going to improve over time!

VP8
using the libvpx encoder. We have now deprecated Theora (VP3) in favour of VP8 which is a more modern encoder offering better quality encodes at lower file sizes.

LibFaac
Has now officially been removed due to GPL compatibility issues, and replaced with the libav AAC encoder as the new default for Windows and Linux. In addition, we have added the FDK AAC encoder for Windows and Linux as a optional compile-time option. The Mac release will continue to use CoreAudio as the default.

As usual, we've updated a number of the core libraries including x264 and libav

Filters and Scalers
Denoise
The new NLMeans filter offers much higher quality denoising. Our previous filter, hqdn3d, now accepts individual settings for each of the chroma channels (Cb, Cr).

OpenCL Scaling
In addition to the default Lanczos scaling algorithm, HandBrake now offers BiCubic scaling on Windows via OpenCL. If the results prove positive, we may roll it out to other platforms in a future release. Thanks to the guys at AMD for building our OpenCL framework!

GUIs
Feature Parity
A lot of work has been done to bring the user interfaces closer in terms of feature parity. We are now much closer than in any previous release.

Audio and Subtitle Defaults
The audio and subtitle controls have been overhauled to support default behaviours which can be stored in presets. This simplifies the workflow for many batch encoding scenarios.

There are literally hundreds of other improvements, so check out the release notes for more details.

If you happen to discover any bugs or issues please tell us about them in the bugs forum or let us know via our IRC channels.

HandBrake 0.10.5 Released

Thursday, Feb 11, 2016

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we can no longer include binary distributions of HandBrake which include the FDK-AAC encoder.  Please also be aware that if you are distributing any previous 0.10.x you must cease doing so now due to licensing issues.

Release Highlights

- Removal of FDK AAC from our binary releases. --enable-fdk is required for "non-free" builds if compiling from source.
- Updated x265 to 1.9 which brings bug fixes and performance improvements.
- Few minor bug fixes since the 0.10.3 release. This includes improvements in large AVI file handling.

We would also like to again remind everyone that handbrake.fr is the only official place to download HandBrake. If you do download it from another website, we highly recommend that you verify your download against the SHA1 checksums provided via the download page.

If you happen to discover any bugs or issues please tell us about them in the bugs forum or the GitHub issue tracker. You can also let us know via our IRC channels.

"After more than 13 years of development, the HandBrake Team is delighted to present HandBrake 1.0.0. Thank you to all of our many contributors over the years for making HandBrake what it is today.
