Handbrake 0.9.3 released: Linux GUI available (Ubuntu 8.10 .deb packages included)

HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.”

This is a must have tool for anyone who needs to convert video for playback on specific devices, for online publishing or backup purposes. Thanks to its multi-threaded nature, it works efficiently with modern multi-core CPUs. The new release is notable for Linux users, as earlier versions lacked a graphical user interface for this platform.

Minimal netinstall iso-images of Ubuntu Linux

Why they don’t properly advertise these on the main site is beyond me. I normally never use anything except net installer cds when I work with Debian.
