   0.50.11 - [stable branch] - Sat 26 Apr 2003, joern
    Note:
    - To all RedHat 9 Users: RedHat's default kernel uses
      the new Native Posix Thread Library, which makes problems
      with transcode. Setting the environment variable
      LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 may workaround this problem (also
      installing all RedHat errata). dvd::rip now sets
      LD_ASSUME_KERNEL, just to prevent "yet another FAQ" ;)
      There are reports, that it doesn't work even with this
      variable set. Please keep an eye on the transcode-users
      list, if you suffer from this problem. I can't help you - 
      don't use RedHat ;)

    Bugfixes:
    - dvdrip -v reported nothing, in particular not the version
      number ;)
    - Movies with no audio track within the first few MB of the
      stream made strange problems. Added -H 10 to the
      correspondent transcode commands, which extends the
      area of audio probing, so this shouldn't happen anymore.
      Thanks for the hint to Tillmann Bitterberg.
    - Changed 703 MB cd preset to 700 MB. 703 was too tight.
      Also added the "-overburn" option to the cdrecord command.
    - Workaround for a transcode bug: for NTSC movies the frame
      rate sometimes isn't detected propery from DVD. Only
      probing the VOB's after ripping reports always the correct
      frame rate. Thanks for the report to Douglas Bollinger.
    - Progress bar was messed up when transcoding with PSU Core.
      Thanks for the report to Douglas Bollinger.
    - Cluster mode: the dr_exec program (part of dvd::rip) was
      needed on remote nodes, although no dvd::rip software is
      installed on them. This is fixed now, no dr_exec necessary
      anymore on remote nodes. Thanks for the report to Lethal
      Weapon.
    - Reduced OGG overhead value for video bitrate calculation.
      from 1.15% to 0.25% of total stream size, which is an
      estimation based on several test rips I made (using xvid,
      which has obviously the best vbr control from all existent
      mpeg4 codecs). With this value most of my test rip's hit
      the target size with a maximum error of 1 MB.
