VirtualDub 1.8.4 released

VirtualDub 1.8.4 is out -- it is a new stable release consisting of mostly bug fixes. Upgrading to 1.8.4 is recommended if you work with the distributed job list system, process DV type-1 videos, or use the capture system from the command line. There is also a fix for display issues if you use Direct3D display mode and work with videos that are larger than the screen resolution.

Changelist after the jump.
