   0.49.2 - [unstable branch] - Sun 29 Dec 2002, joern
    Notes:
    - File format changed and isn't backward compatible. Old project
      files are autoconverted, but older dvd::rip versions can't open
      files saved with this version.
    - dvd::rip insists on transcode 0.6.2 from now on.

    Features:
    - Major internal code cleanup, hopefully without introducing too
      many bugs.
    - Added OGG/Vorbis video bitrate optimization. First all audio
      tracks are transcoded, after that the real audio size is known
      so the video bitrate can be adjusted accordingly. Correspondent
      messages appear in the log. This works in standard and cluster
      mode. Thanks to Moritz Bunkus, Markus Liebl and xercist for
      suggestions and discussion.
    - PCM passthrough (for AVI only). Requested long time ago by
      Jamie Manley <jamie AT homebrewcomputing.com> and xercist.
    - Support for transcode's smartdeinter deinterlacing filter. This
      switches off YUV mode, because this filter supports only RGB
      (it's rather slow but has good quality). Requested by Christian
      Lambert, Florin Andrei and others.
    - Slightly cluster mode optimization: master node's state is never
      'offline' or 'unknown', and the node isn't fping'ed anymore.

    Bugfixes:
    - Adjusted (S)VCD bitrate overhead calculation (mpeg2enc's -B
      parameter) to audio + 2% of overall stream (was 1%), because
      1% seems to be underestimated in general.
    - (S)VCD disc size calculation didn't consider the per disc
      overhead of 600 sectors. Again thanks to Julio Sánchez.
    - Vorbis sample rate conversion didn't work.
    - transcoding to OGG without audio didn't work. Thanks for the
      report to Clint Silvester <clint AT focuscompanies.com>
    - Volume scanning of PCM audio tracks didn't work.
    - Cluster mode: additional audio tracks with OGG didn't work.
