handbrakeThere is a reason why software goes through many phases of development, from its initial concept, to a workable prototype, a working alpha, beta, and finally its release. This is because the early stages are about getting the software up and running, and testing it to make sure it works properly and that there no bugs (or at least as much as possible).

Now it seems that after existing for 13 years in beta, video conversion software HandBrake is no longer a beta app and has been released as version 1.0.0. “After more than 13 years of development, the HandBrake Team is delighted to present HandBrake 1.0.0. Thank you to all of our many contributors over the years for making HandBrake what it is today. “

For those unfamiliar, HandBrake is a video conversion software that allows users to change the format of a video. This is ideal for users looking to make video files smaller, especially if you’re looking to convert a regular video for desktops to one that is more suited (in size and format) for mobile devices.

HandBrake is a free download and is available via its official website (and only its official website). It is available for multiple platforms such as macOS, Windows, and Ubuntu.
