Release Notes: This release features a new GUI for making multiple titlesets with tovid. It includes many updates and fixes for changes in the backends like ffmpeg and dvdauthor as well as numerous bugfixes. New libavfilter features from ffmpeg have been implemented, so the -quick-menu option now works again with a recent enough libavfilter and ffmpeg (0.8).

PNG is now used generally as an intermediary format instead of JPEG, resulting in improved picture quality.
