Changes for version 0.97.3

  • Notes:
  • This version requires Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory 0.58.
  • New optional dependency: with lsdvd dvd::rip reads DVD TOC much faster.
  • Source directory layout changed slightly. All scripts and binaries moved into the bin/ subdirectory. All additional program files now have a "dvdrip-" prefix, the old "dr_" prefix for some binaries was dropped.
  • Features:
  • Subtitle preview images may be grabbed while ripping which makes finding the correct subtitles much easier since no long-winded preview grabbing has to be done later. You can chosse to rip no subs, all of them or by language. Aware: your CPU will glow a bit more while ripping if you use this feature ;)
  • dvd::rip now has a command line frontend for pure transcoding without any GUI: dvdrip-tet (task execution terminal). Just execute "dvdrip-tet" to get some help about the the command line options.
  • With dvdrip-replex an experimental command line application is shipped which does DVD shrinking based on a ripped DVD and the corresponding dvd::rip project file. Just a prove-of-concept. The functionality will be added to the GUI sometimes...
  • Added a simple 'configure' script to fulfill GNU Source Installer requirements. Thanks for the suggestion to Claudio Fontana <sick_soul AT yahoo.it>.
  • Ported "force slow frame grabbing" feature from 0.52 to 0.97 branch.
  • Preferences dialog now has a "Cancel" button.
  • Added an "dvd::rip" entry to the dependency table which checks whether all dvd::rip command files are found in the PATH.
  • Bugfixes:
  • Cluster control web service was broken.
  • Applied a patch from Ulrich Spoerlein <q AT galgenberg.net> removing the -ping option from the ImageMagick "identify" calls, since recent ImageMagick versions don't have this option anymore.
  • Applied minor patches from Ulrich Spoerlein to improve FreeBSD compatability.
  • Parsing output of the ImageMagick identify command was broken with specific filenames. Thanks for the report to Colin Wheat <cwheat AT ami.com.au>.
  • Dropped "identify -ping" option, since not any longer supported with newer versions. Thanks for the report to Avinash Chopde <avinash AT acm.org>.
  • X(S)VCD processing with manual bitrate setting didn't work. Thanks for the report to Ed Doolittle <ed.doolittle AT utoronto.ca>
  • dvd::rip dependency check was broken if tools didn't run due to NPTL issues. Switching NPTL workaround on/off didn't help anymore because the results were cached even on that case. Thanks for figuring that out to Joe Zbiciak <intvnut AT gmail.com>.
  • Sightly cluster mode node editor GUI improvements
