    HandBrake lastest version is already 0.9.3.
    HandBrake’s popularity benefit from free. On the other hand, it is difficult to use for beginner, lack support and weak stability. HandBrake attend technology and ignore user experience.
    I consider iFunia is better than it, http://www.ifunia.com
