The HandBrake team are continuing to move away from their yearly release cycle, and have now set out to publish interim fix releases.

The first of these new releases is version 0.10.1, which has just been released. These updates will focus more on fixing any bugs uncovered in the app, as opposed to adding new features already being worked on for version 1.0 of the open source video transcoder.

Here's the list of changes in the latest release:

  • Various bug fixes for all platforms and the core engine.
  • Updated x265 to 1.5 which brings numerous bug fixes and some performance improvements.

Since this is the first of the interim releases from the HandBrake team, we're looking at "various bug fixes for all platforms and the core engine," as well as bumping the x265 encoder to version 1.5 to address a number of performance related issues.

While not a major release, it's good to see the team taking steps to improve the experience of those who use HandBrake.
