Professional Edition Version 1.10.7

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Corrected a conversion error in the SP2 beta code. This could cause several possible problems during PREPARE or ENCODE.

- Added a check that forces ConvertToYUY2() into AVS files that are destined for use in ProCoder. In previous versions deselecting this option could cause ProCoder to stop functioning properly.

- Corrected functioning of the "<" and ">" buttons in the new beta Viewer/Editor. In some countries' numeric formats the "," decimal separator wasn't being properly interpreted.

- Corrected several minor slider positioning errors in the beta Viewer/Editor.

- Corrected a ReJig sizing error.

- Corrected an error in the new beta SP2 support. The maximum bitrate value was not being properly set. Note that SP2 support continues to be considered "beta".

- Corrected a bug in the ECL generation for the beta CCE SP2 feature. Previous video for the PAL system when using SP2 could result in blank sections at the end of each video segment.

- Added settings to the SP2 ECL file that could prevent sizing problems in the event that default values were incorrect.

- Corrected ECL updating routines in the Segment Editor/Viewer for SP2 files.

- Other minor fixes/enhancements.

Professional Edition Version 1.10.8

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Corrected an error in the beta Editor/Viewer in which the updates made by "Allocate Saved Space to Feature" may not be saved when exiting.. resulting in undersizing.

- Added code to reduce the likelihood that network layer delays might cause timing errors.

- Fixed an issue in which blanking a segment might result erroneous bitrate values.

- Corrected an bug in which a certain sequence of starting, stopping, and resuming the ENCODE phase could skip one or more segments and result in "Error in UpdateIFO" due to missing M2V file(s).

- Corrected code so that space related to unreferenced cells that have been removed is returned to video. This could have caused undersizing for backup up certain dics.

- Added code to help alleviate "slow closing" that seems to happen when using AutoQMatEnc on network drives and the resulting "Cannot open ITEM.ECL" error.

- Corrected the display of "Est Size (total)" in the beta segment editor/viewer. Previous versions failed to account for NAVPACKs in this value. The "DVD Output Size" display as not affected and remains correct.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Freeware Version 0.98

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version. Note that this freeware version includes all bugfixes to date. Also note that the freeware version will not include the enhanced capabilities of the Pro Edition -- and future releases will be limited to minor changes and bug fixes only.

CHANGES MADE TO FREEWARE VERSION (since v0.97)

- Added a new "Write to Blank Disc (with ImgBurn)" option under the "Mode" menu. When selected this option will, at the end of DVD file creation, automatically burn to disc using the newest version of ImgBurn. Note -- the option is only enabled if you have ImgBurn v2.0.0.0 or greater installed on your computer. ImgBurn is highly recommended and can be downloaded at www.imgburn.com.

- Corrected an error in which "garbage" data following null or padding sectors could result in unpredictable timing and/or desynchronization.

- Added code to prevent a very rare cell transition timing anomaly that can occur when the source contains an irregularity.

- Added code to reduce the likelihood of "Error #0006" on streams that contain embedded MPEG garbage. Also, as investigation showed that these only happen in "orphaned" MPEG sections (following "null sectors" created by a decrypter) that are never actually decoded, the error has been removed and replaced by a warning in the STATUS window/log.

- Removed the "Special Error Processing" option. It no longer serves a purpose.

- Improved procedures for handling sequence_end_code and still frame processing. Fixed a bug in which an end code might be incorrectly inserted under certain rare circumstances.

- Corrected an error in which the INF first_sector and last_sector may (rarely on an oddly formatted source) be off by one sector.

- Fixed "Runtime Error 6" that can occur during rebuild when dealing with very small M2V files under specific conditions.

- Added routines to recognize and ignore extraneous files in the source directory -- including unreferenced VTSs that serve no purpose except to occupy space.

- Added a "hidden" setting, "DISABLE_UNREFERENCED_REMOVAL". This allows you to keep unreferenced cells and VTSs if for some reason it becomes necessary. By default DVD-RB removes any video/audio that, based upon the IFOs, is not actually used on the DVD.

- Fixed an error that could cause certain types of still pictures to not display.

- Added code for checking and adjusting for Pan & Scan mode. This should correct the problem on certain players where BOV video appears horizontally compressed and button placement appears off.

- Improved the layer_break recognition routines to better recognize and properly handle seamless branching titles.

- Improved the layer_break recognition routines to more judiciously decide whether to change cell settings in the IFO.

- Updated the installer to include QuEnc v0.71, HC Encoder v0.18, and ECLPRO v1.00 (RC1).

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.10.9

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Fixed a bug that could cause erroneous "Corrupt Stream Detected" message to occur during REBUILD.

- Corrected an issue in which settings saved before a batch process may not be restored correctly at batch end.

- Corrected an oddity in which unreferenced cells may not be included in the sizing calculation -- resulting in output undersizing.

- Fixed error in which bitrate values from use of the beta Viewer/Editor are not being written correctly to the ECL file when using CCE SP2.

- Modified the default bitrate for segments that contain less than 60 frames. Discs with huge numbers of small segments could cause some oversizing.

- Fixed a rare bug related to loading of Project files.

- Further improved ReJig sizing algorithm. This should prevent undersizing that was previously observed.

- Adjusted code related to the processing of .ECL files.

- Improved sizing algorithm so that it can properly account for some oddly formatted discs.

- Added code to more accurately predict sizing when working in "Movie and Menus Only" mode.

- Updated the installer to include HC Encoder v0.19.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.11.0

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Several improvements in the authoring engine. This also corrects a bug in which, under certain circumstances, it was possible for the REBUILD phase to create runt VOBUs.

- Added code to support drag & drop capability for adding files to the batch processor. Please note that only .RBD files will be accepted for dropping.

- Added code to automatically recognize, adjust, and correct for certain types of corrupt streams.

- Updated the CCE Path detection code to verify the collected path names and look for variations.

- Added code to retry certain open statements when O/S calls return before the operation is truly completed. This should correct the occasional "Could not open ... file" errors that seems happen when Kaspersky antivirus in in use on the host system.

- Corrected a condition in which the VOBU_1stREF_EA NavPack setting could be set incorrectly. Note: This could have happened only under very unusual circumstances.

- Corrected a bug in which audio remapping may not correctly work when used in conjunction with Movie_Only mode.

- Fixed "Runtime Error 35600" that can sometimes occur when selecting "Show Extras Only" from the Viewer/Editor menu.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.12.0

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Made several improvements to the audio detection, selection, and removal procedures, making it less likely for output to be something other than expected.

- Added routines to recognize segments for which using OPV might cause problems (such as ILVU) and force multiple pass encoding (instead of OPV) for those segments.

- Corrected a calculation error that could, when unreferenced sectors exist, cause sizing miscalculations while using "Movie Only" mode.

- Improved recognition and handling procedures for STILL frames and scene changes. Reduced the liklihood of unnecessary segment breaks. This could improve processing speed and reduce complexity.

- Updated multiplexing algorithm to more robustly handle unusual streams. This is most likely to help in streams with exceptionally numerous scene changes.

- Corrected a situation that could, under rare circumstances, result in a REBUILD buffer overflow errors.

- Updated the full installer to include HC Encoder v0.19.1

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.20.0 (Beta)

This is not a production release and will not be automatically distributed to VIP users until testing is complete. Please read this thread if you wish to test this software.

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Added support for writing several new output formats. Generally for MOBILE encoding (such as iPod), DVD-RB can now output MP4, AVI, and other video and audio formats. The capability should be considered as BETA TEST status (to identify bugs) only in this version. A new "MOBILE (iPod) Output" option can now be set under the "Mode" menu. urrently DVD-RB Pro uses FFMPEG (included in the installer) to create the output using XviD, H264, and a large spectrum of other possible video/audio formats (via FFMPEG). FFMPEG is a fast and powerful video format encoder that is provided under the GNU Public License Agreement. Read the file "License.txt" for more information. Support for other encoders may be included in future versions.

- Corrected a processing problem during the PREPARE phase for "Movie-Only" encodes. The problem could cause PREPARE to take significantly more time than is necessary.

- Added code to test and correct for corrupt streams in which garbage are at the start of a cell, and are followed by the orphaned remains of a GOP. This condition has been seen to cause incorrect writes of frame flags and the error condition "Corrupt Stream Detected" during REBUILD.

- Made adjustments to the sizing algorithm in order to prevent oversizing on oddly formatted DVDs that have huge numbers of very small segments.

- Corrected a bug in which ILVU segments might receive a lessor bitrate than they should based upon the analysis.

- Updated the calling/checking mechanisms used to invoke encoders. This should make the processing more robust as well as (slightly) improve encode times.

- Made several changes to the way the PREPARE phase records information.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.20.3 (Beta)

This is not a production release and will not be automatically distributed to VIP users until testing is complete. Please read this thread if you wish to test this software. Combined change log:

Code:
November 27th, 2006 (v1.20.3)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Corrected a problem in rate control buffer sizing for 
  MOBILE encoding.  This may have caused "jerking" or
  other odd behaviour during playback. (v1.20.3)
- Inhibited the "Already Small Enough" message when MOBILE
  encoding is the only thing being done. (v1.20.3)
- Added a setting in the REBUILDER.INI file for setting the
  minimum PGC size when doing MOBILE encodes.  This sets the 
  minimum size (in frames) for a PGC to be encoded.  This new 
  "hidden" setting is called "PGC_Minimum_Frames=" and it can 
  be added to the "[Mobile]" section.  The default value (if 
  none is set) is 22500. This comes out to about 12.5 minutes 
  on NTSC and 15 minutes on PAL. (v1.20.3)
- Corrected an issue in which the "Custom" settings under the
  MOBILE dialog were not being properly used at encode time.
  (v1.20.3)
- Fixed an error in which BATCH encoding was not correctly
  applying selected PRESET to MOBILE encodes as they were
  saved in project files.  Instead the "last selected preset" 
  was being applied.  (v1.20.3)
- Corrected an error that would cause AVISYNTH errors in
  countries that use the "," as a decimal. (v1.20.2)
- Added specification for the audio output format to the
  MOBILE settings dialog (v1.20.1)
- Fixed a bug where no default PRESET was being selected
  the first time entering the MOBILE dialog. (v1.20.1)

November 21st, 2006 (v1.20.0)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Added support for writing several new output formats.
  Generally for MOBILE encoding (such as iPod), DVD-RB can 
  now output MP4, AVI, and other video and audio formats. 
  The capability should be considered as BETA TEST status 
  (to identify bugs) only in this version.  A new "MOBILE 
  (iPod) Output" option can now be set under the "Mode" 
  menu.  Currently DVD-RB Pro uses FFMPEG (included in the 
  installer) to create the output using XviD, H264, and a 
  large spectrum of other possible video/audio formats 
  (via FFMPEG). FFMPEG is a fast and powerful video format 
  encoder that is provided under the GNU Public License 
  Agreement.  Read the file "License.txt" for more 
  information.  Support for other encoders may be included 
  in future versions. (v1.20.0)
- Corrected a processing problem during the PREPARE phase
  for "Movie-Only" encodes.  The problem could cause
  PREPARE to take significantly more time than is necessary.
  (v1.20.0)  
- Added code to test and correct for corrupt streams in 
  which garbage are at the start of a cell, and are 
  followed by the orphaned remains of a GOP.  This 
  condition has been seen to cause incorrect writes of 
  frame flags and the error condition "Corrupt Stream 
  Detected" during REBUILD. (v1.20.0)
- Made adjustments to the sizing algorithm in order to
  prevent oversizing on oddly formatted DVDs that have
  huge numbers of very small segments. (v1.20.0)

  as well as (slightly) improve encode times. (v1.20.0)
- Made several changes to the way the PREPARE phase records
  information. (v1.20.0)
- Other minor and cosmetic changes.
I expect to take this out of beta and mail it to VIPs pending testing of this version and some minor changes resulting from feedback.

Professional Edition Version 1.20.4

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
December 2nd, 2006 (v1.20.4)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Added support for writing several new output formats.
  Generally for MOBILE encoding (such as iPod), DVD-RB can 
  now output MP4, AVI, and other video and audio formats. 
  A new "MOBILE (iPod) Output" option can now be set under 
  the "Mode" menu.  Currently DVD-RB Pro uses FFMPEG 
  (included in the installer) to create the output using 
  XviD, H264, and a large spectrum of other possible 
  video/audio formats (via FFMPEG). FFMPEG is a fast and 
  powerful video format encoder that is provided under the 
  GNU Public License Agreement.  Read the file "License.txt" 
  for more information.  Support for other encoders may be 
  included in future versions. (v1.20.0)

- Added a new feature for prefix recognition to the filter 
  processor.  These are meant to help descriminate on the 
  usage of filters.  Now you can add "E:", "F:", "I:", or 
  "P:" as a prefix to a line added in the filter editor.  
  The prefixes represent "Extras", "Feature", "Interlaced", 
  and "Progressive" respectively.  When specified, the prefix 
  will limit that filter to usage only when the source to be 
  encoded matches the prefix.  For example, if specifying 
  "E:filter1()" the filter "filter1()" would only be applied 
  to segments that are determined to be extras.  Setting 
  "e:i:filter2()" limits use of "filter2()" to segments that 
  are extras -- and are also interlaced. (v1.20.4)

- Added text to the LOG that identifies the source being
  processed (v1.20.4)

- Implemented code to save the summary line from PREPARE to
  the INF file.  In prior versions the summary at the end
  of a batch encode set could be incorrectly reported when
  the PREPARE phase was skipped during batch. (v1.20.4)

- Corrected an error in which the incorrect PRESET may be
  used when selecting "Custom" from the MOBILE encoding
  dialog. (v1.20.4)

- Corrected a problem in rate control buffer sizing for 
  MOBILE encoding.  This may have caused "jerking" or
  other odd behaviour during playback. (v1.20.3)

- Inhibited the "Already Small Enough" message when MOBILE

Freeware Version 0.98.2

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version. Note that this freeware version includes all bugfixes to date. Also note that the freeware version will not include the enhanced capabilities of the Pro Edition -- and future releases will be limited to minor changes and bug fixes only.

CHANGES MADE TO FREEWARE VERSION (since v0.98.1)
Code:
December 15th, 2006 (v0.98.2)
CHANGES TO FREEWARE VERSION
- Made several important improvements to the authoring engine.  
  Updated multiplexing and timing algorithms to more accurately
  adhere to standards.  Made several bugfixes to the engine and
  corrected a situation in which runt VOBUs could be created 
  under certain circumstances.
- Fixed a bug related to building of the reference frame index
  in the NavPack.
- Corrected a rare but possible "skipping" problem that could
  happen on certain players as a result of DVD-RB's handling of 
  some recent HC versions.
- Improved recognition and handling procedures for STILL
  frames and scene changes.  Reduced the liklihood of
  unnecessary segment breaks.  This could improve processing
  speed and reduce complexity.
- Updated the encoder calling routine to enable scene detection 
  during usage of HC Encoder.  It defaulted to "off" in previous
  versions.
- Updated the installer to include HC Encoder v0.19.1.
- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.20.5

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
January 6th, 2007 (v1.20.5)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

- Added a menu item to the "Mode" menu for selecting
  the audio stream desired for MOBILE encoding.

- Added code to accept non-AC3 audio sources as selections
  using the "Substream=" command.   They can also now be
  selected from the "Mobile Audio Source" menu item.  This 
  feature should be used with the understanding that the 
  new formats (LPCM, MPA, and DTS) are in beta status.

- Added code to recognize out-of-sequence playback in a
  PGC during MOBILE encoding and correct audio.  This
  should prevent out-of-sync playback on certain titles.

- Optimized routines used for MOBILE audio extraction 
  during the PREPARE phase.  This should improve PREPARE 
  speed slightly when MOBILE is selected.

- Corrected an error in MOBILE encoding in which the
  second pass of XviD encodings (when selected) was not 
  being properly executed.

- Added a PRESET parameter to the MOBILE.INI file. Now
  those familiar with FFMPEG can pass additional command
  line parameters to the encode with "cmdline=".

- Added a PRESET parameter to the MOBILE.INI file.  The
  "ConvertFPS=" setting will convert the framerate to that
  specified.  Note that this can result in some 
  degradation in the fluidity of the picture.

- Added several more parameters to the custom settings
  listboxes for MOBILE encoding.

- Corrected a calculation in resizing (for aspect ratio) 
  during MOBILE encoding might result in a "Not a multiple 
  of 4" AVISYNTH error message.

- Corrected an issue in MOBILE encoding in which odd RFF
  patterns (resulting from hybrid sources) might cause a
  frame to be lost between segments.

- Corrected a "testing" issue in which the second pass for
  MOBILE encodes was never executed when "FrameLimit="  was set in the REBUILDER.INI file.

- Modified the MOBILE code so that the output path is not
  cleared before writing.  This now makes it possible to use
  the same output path for more than one encode.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.21

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
January 20th, 2007 (v1.21)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

- Made several improvements to the authoring engine that
  should improve accuracy and hold more robustly to
  standards when sources have oddities detected. 

- Per request from several users, modified the browsing 
  routines for source, working, and destination paths so 
  that browsing starts at the last selected (legal) path.

- Updated the IMGBURN calling routine for direct disc
  writes to explicitly specify the type of file system.

- Corrected a bug in which, under certain circumstances
  the NAVPACK of a still menu may not be updated with the 
  correct "End PTM of VOBU if Sequence_End_Code" value.
  This could result in odd behaviour and/or response to 
  menu items on some players.  Many thanks to Geekman and
  Zeul for some great support in capturing this very 
  elusive bug.  Thanks also to abysas, kbello, Geekman, 
  and Sharc for assisting in testing.

- Corrected a bug in which the ISO burning options may
  not save/load correctly from project files.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.22

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
February 24th, 2007 (v1.22)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Improved program robustness in several areas, it now
  recognizes more oddities in the source and compensates
  to reduce likelihood of output glitches.

- Added detection and auto configuration for multiple
  core processing.  Now the "Multiple Encoder Processes"
  setting is automatically set to match the number of
  processors at startup or when clicking on the "Multiple
  Encoder Processes" option.  If you only have one 
  processor and select the option, DVD-RB will assume a 
  "fast" system and will set the process count to 2. You 
  can, however, manually override the setting by changing 
  the "Encode_Processes=" parameter in REBUILDER.INI (for 
  instance if you want to use only 2 processors for 
  encoding on a 4 processor system).

- Made the new style editor the default.

- Updated code to make DVD-RB less likely to run into
  security issue when running under Windows Vista.

- Added an "Auto" setting to the MOBILE settings dialog
  for "GOP Size" -- this will let FFMPEG decide the size.

- Added parameters to hold constant Q when used with H264
  for MOBILE encoding.  The parameter wasn't being honored 
  with previous versins.  Constant Q is enabled by 
  entering a video bitrate of less than 32 (interpreted to 
  be a Q value).

- Corrected "Runtime Error 461" that can occur when
  attempting to drag entries in the "Batch" list box.

- Changed the way in which rate control parameters are
  passed to FFMPEG when doing MOBILE encoding.

- Corrected "Error attempting to close DVD" that occured
  when MOBILE encoding attempted on a source that wasn't
  PREPARED with MOBILE options.

- Faster HC encoding speed (especially SSE2 supporting
  processors).  Updated the installer to include HC 
  Encoder v0.20

- Improved rate control on QuEnc.  Updated the installer 
  to include QuEnc v0.72

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.23.1

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
March 17th, 2007 (v1.23.1)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Corrected an error introduced in v1.23 that could cause
  the "Movie Only" mode to fail. (v1.23.1)

- Corrected a bug in which a few certain oddly formatted 
  source discs could cause "...ISO Write Error" and 
  "... ISO Image was NOT successfully created" errors.  
  The output IFO files could be corrupted.  Note: this 
  error would result in no files being written to disc -- 
  so it is unlikely a "bad disc" could be created. (v1.23)
 
- Added code to check and correct VIDEO_TS.IFO files that
  incorrectly count/list unreferenced title sets. (v1.23)

- Added code to make DVD-RB accept certain sources that are
  output by AnyDVD without a need for preprocessing with 3rd 
  party packages. (v1.23)

- Corrected an error in which the "CCE SP" option under
  "SETTINGS/CCE SETTINGS" can be incorrectly checked during
  the encode phase.  This can, under certain circumstances,
  cause an error related to "incorrect ECL file format". (v1.23)

- Added routines to look at source structure and adapt to
  inconsistencies. (v1.23)

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.23.2

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
March 25th, 2007 (v1.23.2)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

- Added code to further enhance unreferenced VTS removal.
  This should correct remaining problems with certain
  types of source oddities.

- Corrected a condition in which creation of ISO images
  may fail when unreferenced material was removed.

- Corrected a bug in which, under certain circumstances on
  oddly formatted discs, titles be executed incorrectly.

- Note:  The new unreferenced removal routines can be 
  disabled by adding "DISABLE_COMMAND_REFERENCE_CHECK=1" 
  to the "[Options]" area of REBUILDER.INI.

- Corrected a bug in which some VTSs may not show as
  referenced when the reference was in VIDEO_TS.VOB.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.23.3

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
March 31st, 2007 (v1.23.3)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Optimized code to reduce the startup scanning time on 
  discs that have large numbers of VTSs.

- Fixed a bug that could cause "Runtime Error 55" on a
  small number of sources that contained unreferenced 
  material.

- Corrected a bug in which setting or resetting the 
  "Menu Encoding" option did not refresh the Selection
  Settings.  As a result, a "Runtime Error 9" could
  occur under certain circumstances.

- Updated error handling routines, making them more
  robust.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.24.0

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
April 10th, 2007 (v1.24.0)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Added an additional filter prefix "C:".  If the "C:" is
  present as a prefix in the filter line, the line will be 
  added only when the colorimetry of any part of the 
  original source is anything other than Rec.709.

- Added an additional "M:" filter prefix.  If the "M:" is
  present the filter line will only be added when
  a segment associated with a menu.

- Changed algorithm so that filters are now also applied to
  menus.  Please note, though, that filters using the "E:"
  or "F:" prefix will (naturally) not be applied to menus.

- Added a new hidden option.  Now you can add additional
  parameters to all MPEG2SOURCE() entries in the AVS
  files by adding a "MPEG2SOURCE_OPTS=" to the "[Options]"
  area of REBUILDER.INI.  For example:
      MPEG2SOURCE_OPTS=info=3
  This entry will tell the option to output hints that
  might, for example, be used by the ColorMatrix() filter.

- Updated Q prediction routines (OPV) to prevent an odd
  condition in which the Q value may jump strangely causing
  a need for additional prediction passes.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.25.0

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
May 2nd, 2007 (v1.25.0)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Added additional code to the OPV single pass prediction 
  routines to increase sizing accuracy.  This should reduce 
  the probability of over/undersizing in OPV.

- Added two more "hidden" options to REBUILDER.INI for
  adjusting OPV actions related to HC encoding.  The values
  "HC_CQ_BFACTOR=" and "HC_CQ_PFACTOR=" allow you to set
  the related HC settings for one pass VBR encoding.  More
  information can be obtained in the HC documentation.

- Updated the "Close DVD-RB at REBUILD Completion" option
  in the MODE menu.  It is now persistent and the setting
  will carry-over between sessions.

- Added a popup window to show status when DVD-RB scans
  at startup or after source selection.  This is necessary
  to show progress when encountering an exceptionally large 
  VIDEO_TS.VOB.

- Corrected an issue in which, under certain circumstances,
  when colorimetry changes between two segements, the flag
  ("c:") in the filter editor might get incorrectly tripped.

- Corrected a bug in which under very rare circumstances the
  last GOP of a cell could be flagged with incorrect
  colorimetry information.

- Updated the Installer to include ECLPRO v1.00 Final, which
  fixes some "exit" related issues.

- Modified colorimetry interpretation so that receiving a
  "2" (unspecified) as the matrix_coefficient would default 
  to actions for Rec.709.

- Added code to clean up the temporary encoder directories
  that are created for muliple encoder processes.

- Updated OPV processing to allow an alternate matrix.  Now
  OPV will use the specified as "Main Feature Matrix."  In
  OPV the matrix will not change based upon bitrate -- as
  it is necessary for predictions to be made using a single
  matrix and quantizer/Q value.

- Added HC v0.21 to the standard installation package.  This
  corrects a rare "hang" issue and can now encode slightly
  faster in BEST mode.  Also added support for the new 
  luminance gain (LUMGAIN) parameter.  You can now set
  the value using "HC_LUMGAIN=" in the REBUILDER.INI file.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.
