HandBrake Stable for Precise Pangolin

Postby randomreuben » Fri Apr 27, 2012 12:09 am

Dear JohnAStebbins,

I am not sure what is involved in the creation of a Precise Pangolin version of HandBrake Stable for the PPA (https://launchpad.net/~stebbins/+archive/handbrake-releases), if it generates a version for Precise automatically or if you have to do something to it, but please would you update the PPA for Precise Pangolin now that Ubuntu 12.04 is out?

Much obliged,

randomreuben

https://trac.handbrake.fr/changeset/4603

should show up tomorrow on:

https://launchpad.net/~stebbins/+archiv ... -snapshots

I don't think there are any plans to release 0.9.6 at this point. Maybe 0.9.7 (which will be a bugfix release and, unlike most of our releases, should show up before next year - no guarantees though).

OK. Thanks for the update, Rodeo. I look forward to the nightly builds.

Any reason why 0.9.7 is going to be a bugfix release? I think it's a good idea that you're considering a build like that, but is there a feature planned for 0.9.8 that will necessitate a bugfix release?

I really appreciate all the hard work you guys do on HandBrake. It's my favourite application. I wish I knew a way to pay you guys back somehow.

No, just something we've always wanted to do (a bugfix release with no major new feature) but never got around to.

OK. I won't rip anything to an "archival" kind of rip until the 0.9.7 release (RF 16, and all that jazz), but use HandBrake instead to watch movies and enjoy them until them.

Note that the nightly is in a fairly stable state now (more than 0.9.6, I'd say - thanks to many bugfixes).
