ChangeLog for version 8.2.5
Code:
- Added support for 30p -> 24p FPS conversion
- Added support for the decimate filter when doing 60p -> 24p
  FPS conversion
- Small improvements to the crop preview code. Should come after
  the user has entered the crop values
- Video file encodings: Use unique default output file based on
  process ID
- Fixed a small bug where h264enc assumes that the $HOME/.h264enc
  directory already exists but that might not be the case, so it
  will fail at making an unique temporary directory. Reported by
  Nathaniel Gray
- Added support for setting the quantization parameter for the
  spp, uspp and fspp postprocessing filters

ChangeLog for version 8.2.6
Code:
- Removed option 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the 60p -> 24p FPS conversion menu
  as these filter chains are not very reliable and often fail at doing
  the conversion. Also removed support for the decimate filter so now
  only framestep and filmdint are supported which give the best results
- Refined the filmdint filter parameters for 60p -> 24p FPS conversion
  and set default filter to filmdint=fast=0/io=60:24
- Bugfix: missing ':' in the vbv_bufsize variable of the psphqvp preset.
  Reported by Harry Gunnarsson

A small release this time. ChangeLog for version 8.2.7
Code:
- Added two Flash Player 9 presets (f9 and f9hq)
- Remove config directory on non-zero exit status
- Implemented -sv option which scans an input video file and displays
  information about it
- Some small code improvements
- Updated the man page

ChangeLog for version 8.2.8
Code:
- Merged the -sv option with -scan
- Fixed an issue when scanning video files, especially TS ones, where
  printing the video resolution could get misaligned
- Remove pointless removing of temp files. Since h264enc now uses
  unique temporary directories to store temp files, there's no
  point in removing them anymore as the unique directory will
  be removed upon user interrupt or user fault
- Added support for the HE-AAC (aka AAC+) audio codec. This requires
  neroAacEnc. When encoding to this codec, the AVI will be first encoded
  with PCM audio. Then both the video and audio will be extracted from
  the AVI, the audio will be encoded to AAC+ and will be muxed together
  with the video to the mp4 and/or mkv container. Multichannel AAC+
  audio is not supported yet as neroAacEnc for Linux doesn't seem to
  support it at the moment
- Added support for the Vorbis audio codec. This requires oggenc.
  Multichannel audio is supported
- Updated the batch code to support AAC+ and Vorbis audio
- Updated the README.h264enc file
- Updated the man page

ChangeLog for version 8.2.9
Code:
- Video bitrate calculation: fixed the PCM part. It needs different
  bitrates for different audio channels. Resampling is not taken into
  account at the moment
- Added support for multichannel AAC+. Note that in VBR mode, you
  must use a value of 0.37 or lower or else neroAacEnc will error out
  with invalid SBR configuration!
- Added support for bitrate based ABR AAC+
- Added support for video bitrate calculation when using ABR AAC+
- Simplified the batch exporting code of the AAC+/Vorbis audio codecs.
  This removes code duplication
- Removed the MP4SBR variable in the batch code of the AAC+ audio
  codec. The value of this variable is now carried by the
  AUDIOFILE variable. Also did a few small simplifications to this part
- Added support for exporting the MP4 muxing commands to the batch file
  when using the NOSOUND audio option
- Updated the signal traps
- Replaced an 'if' conditional by a 'case' one in the video bitrate
  calculation code
- Random clean ups

Think I need a break - ChangeLog for version 8.3.0
Code:
- Simplifications and clean ups in the audio codecs code
- More simplifications to the video bitrate calculation code
- Fixed identification of AAC+ in the matroska muxing code. Should be
  --aac-is-sbr 1:1 and not --aac-is-sbr 1
- Disable accurate rounding of the software scaler on 64-bit systems
  since MEncoder has issues with it
- Simplifications to the Matroska batch exporting code. This removes
  a lot of code duplication
- Only extract audio and video if we deal with the AAC+ or Vorbis
  audio codec
- Simplifications to the Matroska muxing code
- Major simplifications to the MP4 muxing code. A lot of code duplication
  is removed

maybe. I think the script is complete so you'll probably see only small changes over time and less frequent releases

the script already checks for these things. It doesn't download and compile them as you'll need root permissions to install everything. h264enc has a -sc option (sanity check) and displays in a menu what is has found/no found on the user's system. It's up to the user to install the needed packages

which distro are you going to choose? I'm on openSUSE (very slick and user friendly) but Ubuntu is very popular among ex-Windows fanboys. Its popularity comes mainly from Canonical's excellent marketing

excellent, you should definitely try out a few distros and pick the one you like the most. I started out with Mandrake (now Mandriva) back in the days, then switched over to SUSE... been on SUSE for 4 years now

ChangeLog for version 8.3.1
Code:
- Added checking for oggenc and neroAacEnc to the -sc option
- Disabled the scalable sample rate option of the FAAC menu
  since it does not work. FAAC doesn't support HE-AAC
- Color optimizations
- Some minor code improvements
- Use named pipes (fifo) to encode to AAC+ or Vorbis audio. This
  eliminates the audio dumping step and the required disk space
- Updated the batch code to support named pipes

ChangeLog for version 8.3.2
Code:
- Pre/Postprocessing video filters are now grouped in one question

  fixed-quant mode since they have maximum allowed bitrate
  restrictions
- Added autocompletion support. Patch by Nicolas Di Pietro
- Added a skip option to most of the menus
- Added support for AAC+ audio to the f9 and f9hq presets
- Clean ups in the audio codecs code

ChangeLog for version 8.3.3
Code:
* Minor clean ups and code improvements
* Set default QP parameter to 0 for the spp, fspp and uspp postprocessing filters
* Added support for CBR AAC+ audio
* Made the CBR part of the audio codecs to be menu driven
* Fixed a bug where the FPS conversion menu and the Telecine/IVTC don't show
  up due to missing interlaced variable. Bug was introduced during the grouping of
  the pre/postprocessing video filters

ChangeLog for version 8.3.4
Code:
* Removed niceness from the muxing commands
* Clean ups to the batch exporting code
* Added -nocache mplayer option to the AAC+/Vorbis muxing/exporting code
* Disabled muxing to MKV if the user is using the AAC+ or Vorbis audio codec.
  The reason for this is that mkvmerge doesn't seem to honor the --default-duration
  flag when importing RAW h264 streams and will because of this generate files
  with major A/V sync issues. I've already filed a bug report. Until this is resolved
  I will not enable MKV muxing when using the AAC+ or Vorbis audio codec!
* Replaced an 'if' conditional with a 'case' one in the AAC+/Vorbis batch exporting code
* Updated the AUTHORS file. Added Harry Gunnarsson as bug reporter/testing
