Handbrake goes 64bit with a 0.0.1 release

A minor thing for most but for those who care after a year without any updates, the developers responsible for the “mighty fine” video transcoder Handbrake have released version 0.9.4 of the open-source software. With such a small change in the version number, it would be easy to assume that there are not very many new things included, but that assumption really couldn’t be further from the truth. In total, there have been over 1,000 changes since 0.9.3 and, while they might not all be life-changing, many of them make for a better user experience though the removal of the presets is a blessing/curse at times. The 64bit update apparently increases overall speed by 10%.

As with version 0.9.3, you still need to have VLC installed to rip video from a DVD
