Picture quality is purportedly improved through better image scaling, better deinterlacing, new filters for denoising, deblocking, inverse telecine, and new presets devoted to high quality settings. Handbrake 0.9 sees speed improvements due to updated copies of x264 and ffmpeg. This includes improved multi-threaded encoding for the iPod.
Compatibility is improved through new presets for devices like the iPhone and PlayStation Portable. As well, HandBrake now supports DTS as an audio source and has limited support for .VOB and .TS file containers as input. What's more, it can now output to the Matroska (MKV) file container.
