VCS update 2008-04-16: 1.0.12 released

VCS update 2008-04-08: 1.0.11 released

New version released with a couple fixes and cosmetic touches. Fixes include a workaround for cases in which mplayer outputted all-black (or all-equal) captures.

VCS update 2007-05-12: 1.0.7a released

The new version is out. I've noticed some things that didn't work as expected (or as I assumed before, like command-line overrides –although as usual I guess few or no people uses them anyway :p– I'll have to look at them but have not much time anymore so I'm releasing as is. What's new in […]
