    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
    - Corrected an error introduced in version 1.27 that would
    cause serious audio muxing problems.
    - Fixed a source of a possible "Runtime Error 6"

    Professional Edition Version 1.27.0

    - Fixed an error in which the path for NicMp4Box.exe was not
    being automatically detected.

    - Updated routines so that when DVD-RB is running multiple
    instances of HC Encoder the "*NOSMP" setting is used. This
    has been tested to show faster processing on DVD-RB -- as
    it already takes advantage of multiple processors.

    - Update the HC interface so it specifically indicates whether
    a file should be encoded as "*PROGRESSIVE or "*INTERLACED".

    - Modified the REDISTRIBUTION and OPV prediction code for HC
    Encoder. It should now take fewer passes for prediction in
    most cases.

    - Added a check for illegal characters in VOLUME_ID. This
    condition could cause a failure to create an ISO image.

    - Updated the "Close DVD-RB at batch completion" function so
    it "sticks" between runs. Now the setting remains in
    effect until reset.

    - Wrote code to circumvent a source of "Runtime Error 52"
    errors during the file copy section or "Buffer Overflow 0003"
    in the REBUILD phase on certain types of corrupt sources.

    - Made handling of certain sources that fall outside standards
    more robust.
    - Updated D2V creation routines to assume BT.601 colorimetry
    where no SEQUENCE_DISPLAY_EXTENSION is present. Added a
    "hidden" option called "BT601_DEFAULT=0" to the "[Options]"
    area of REBUILDER.INI. This option can make DVD-RB assume
    all unspecified streams to be BT.709 instead. This is
    mainly for non-DVD sources. The default value is "1"
    (BT.601 is the assumption).

    - Added an additional filter prefix. When prefixed by "b:" a
    filter is added only when the source colorimetry is BT.709
    (including SMPTE 240M). This enables cases where you wish
    the output to be converted, for example to BT.601. This
    option is similar to "c:" but has an opposite effect.

    - Corrected an error in which One Pass Encoding could, under
    certain rare circumstances, select an incorrect Q/CQ value
    and as a result over or undersize.

    - Corrected an issue that could slow processing considerably
    when a combination of encoding and extracting is occurring.

    - Cleaned up a cosmetic glitch in which sometimes the "Overall
    Progress" bar didn't correctly show status during ENCODE.

    - Fixed an error in which Final_Q could not be calculated with
    QuEnc or a command line encoder (that supports CQ).
    - Improved the interface for CMDLINE encoding -- now the CQ is
    passed as a floating point variable for more accurate sizing
    during one-pass and REDISTRIBUTION.

    - Modified the default values for PFactor and BFactor when
    running HC Encoder in One Pass CQ mode.

    - Improved the CMDLINE encoder interface so that it now also
    passes "Closed GOP" (for ILVU) and "Bottom Field First"
    (for interlaced encoding) information to the encoder.

    - Made some small changes to the QuEnc interface to restore
    FreeEnc compatibility.

    - Added multiple threading capability to the MOBILE encoding
    command line. This will speed up processing substantially
    for those with multiple processors (e.g. dual/quad cores).

    - Added additional checks to for encoders. Prevents encoders
    from being enabled when they don't really exist.

    - Other minor and cosmetic changes.

    I received the email, but still thought it strange that it's been a while since the last update then the very next day theres this "fix" for it.
    Thanks for making people aware.

    A minor note:

    If you should discover a bug when backing up a DVD then let jdobbs know so that he can replicate it and produce a fix. He is very open to feedback and is quick to fix an issue once it has been reported and proven to exist.

    ...indeed he does;
    dialysis1, hope you don't mind, i renamed the thread title and made this a sticky so we can drop any update info in here..

    Professional Edition Version 1.27.2

    http://www.jdobbs.com/Pages/DVDRebuilder/DVD-RB_Pro_download.htm

    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
    - Added a new hidden setting called "HC_NOSMP" to the
    REBUILDER.INI file. Setting "HC_NOSMP=1" (the default
    setting) disables the use of SMP when multiple instances
    are used. "HC_NOSMP=0" will allow SMP to run. Generally
    the default (No SMP) is faster when run with multiple
    processes, the parameter is provided to let the user
    make the ultimate choice.
    - Added a "Use *AVSRELOAD Parameter" option to the
    "HC OPTIONS" menu which will add that value (useful for
    certain scripts) to the INI files passed to HC encoder.
    - Reversed the v1.27.0 implementation that waits for an
    encode to complete before extracting. It appears to slow
    down encodes on some systems. Go figure. You can still
    enable this feature, however, by adding the hidden option
    "WAIT_FOR_EXTRACT=1".
    - Corrected an error in which the new matrix types were not
    being saved in template files.
    - Made adjustments to the sizing mechanism for Movie Only
    encodes to prevent certain circumstances from resulting
    in undersizing on seamless branching sources.
    - Updated the SCR insertion routine to handle exceptionally
    high SCR values.
    - Updated code to make it more compatible with emulation
    such as running under Linux/WINE.
    - Adjusted build options to correct for a "crash" that was
    reported by some users on the previous release.
    - Other minor and cosmetic changes.

    Professional Edition Version 1.27.3

    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
    - Added a "Use *LOSSLESS Parameter" option to the
    "HC OPTIONS" menu which will add that value (useful for
    speeding up certain scripts) to the INI files passed to
    HC encoder. Note: Only works with HC v0.22.1 or greater.

    - Updated the ISO creation module so that now the ISO will
    be created by ImgBurn rather than MKISOFS if ImgBurn is
    installed and is of a high enough version to support it.

    - Modified the HC calling module so that encoder priority
    is set explicitly (based upon the option) in the HC.INI
    file (HC v0.22 and higher).

    - Corrected so that REDISTRIBUTION doesn't take effect
    when "MOBILE Only" encoding is selected (it is not used
    in that situation).

    - Changed the "CORRUPT SOURCE" error message to a warning
    and removed the annoying popup message. Some rippers
    remove CELLs as needed from the VOB (usually junk cells
    related to protection) without removing the reference to
    the CELLS in the IFO(s).

    - Built a workaround for movie-only PGC selection in discs
    that have incorrect information in PGC tables.

    - Corrected an error in which the batch shutdown had stopped
    working since v1.27.0. Note also, that the setting for batch
    shutdown is also now saved in the INI and will "stick"
    between runs. Older version required setting it before all
    batch runs.

    - Corrected an issue related to Vista in which running in
    "Multiple Encoder Processes" mode could cause HC and other
    encoders to fail with "Failed to find and run encoder..."
    This was caused by Vista's "improved" security.

    - Modified loop checks during ILVU extraction in MOBILE
    encoding so the extraction stops more quickly if "Abort"
    is selected.

    - Changed the actions for unload queries to make DVD-RB a bit
    more robust in the event of problems.

    - Added additional checks to ensure CCE paths are correctly
    configured.

    - Updated the codes so that NICAUDIO.DLL doesn't have to be
    explicitly called out in the REBUILDER.INI file for use in
    MOBILE encoding.

    - Other minor and cosmetic changes.

    Professional Edition Version 1.28.2

    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
    - Made numerous changes to make DVD-RB more sensitive to
    the security environment of Vista.

    - Made changes to make DVD-RB more compatible with some
    windows emulators.

    - Added support for the HC adaptive quantization (*AQ)
    function. This setting can improve picture in flat
    parts. A default value of "2" is used, but can be
    changed by setting "HC_AQ=n" in the "[Options]" area
    of REBUILDER.INI. "n" can be any integer value between
    0 and 4. "0" disables AQ and "4" results in lower
    quants. Note: Keep in mind that due to virtualization
    associated with VISTA, your most current INI may be
    located in the VISTA VirtualStore. One easy way to
    get to it (if you are using VISTA), is to create a
    shortcut on your desktop that points to it.

    - Added a parameter to the HC SETTINGS menu that enables
    and disables LOGGING when encoding with HC encoder. The
    log will be written to a file named "HCLOG.TXT" in the
    working directory.

    - Included HC Encoder v0.23 in the installation packages.
    This version includes extended features and bug fixes.

    - Added ability to have different 1st and 2nd passes when
    using MOBILE encoding (see the MOBILE.INI template under
    the AVCHD beta for an example.

    - Added a "hidden" option called "ImgBurnDest" that, when
    added to REBUILDER.INI will force the write to a specific
    drive. This is expecially useful when working on a
    computer that has more than one writable drive. As an
    example, to force output to the "F:" drive you would add
    "ImgBurnDest=F:" to REBUILDER.INI.

    - Modified the TEMPLATE commands so they automatically
    look in the VirtualStore for templates.

    - Corrected "35601" error that could happen (very rarely)
    on sources with no audio.

    - Added a parameter to the REBUILDER.INI file so that an
    alternate AVISYNTH resizing algorithm can be used for
    certain functions (e.g. converting from 4:3 widescreen
    to 16:9 anamorphic). The default is "LanczosResize".
    Example usage: "RESIZE=Spline36Resize" Note: Adding
    an incorrectly spelled resize parameter will cause your
    encoding to fail.

    - Other minor and cosmetic changes.If you are a registered user of DVD Rebuilder Pro you can always download the latest

    The second link hasn't been working for some time now. I can no longer find the forum there.
    I'm sure most registered users will get their email notification by the end of this weekend.

    Send jdobbs an email and he will correct it. He needs an email address that won't filter or block it.

    Answer quote:

    You of course can add it with these simple instructions.
