This new release includes a myriad of improvements, such as a newly-envisioned interface on the Mac, a totally re-developed Windows interface, improved picture quality, new high-quality presets, improved multi-threaded encoding for the iPod, new presets for devices including the iPhone and PSP, and support for DTS as an audio source. HandBrake 0.9.0 is available now as a free download.

Can anyone explain to me why, as handbrake has gotten “better” it now takes 18 hours to rip a 2 hour movie, when it used to take only 4 hours???

Probably because you’re ripping in H.264 format now instead of MPEG-4. Switch back for a speed increase.
