HandBrake 0.10

HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multithreaded video transcoder for Windows. HandBrake grabs video from a variety of sources, including DVDs, audio from sources as well, including MPEG audio tracks. You'll then be able to output a digital file in a variety of formats, including AAC, MKV, H.264, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, or Theora video. HandBrake takes your movies and transfers them to a format that's useful on your computers, media centers, and portable electronic devices. Other features include title / chapter selection, queue up multiple encodes, chapter markers, subtitles support (VobSub, Closed Captions CEA-608, SSA, SRT), video filters: deinterlacing, decomb, detelecine, deblock, grayscale, cropping and scaling, video peview and more.

HandBrake version 0.10 releases with hundreds of new features, changes, and bug fixes:

Encoders
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!
P8 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.
