Version 18.11 is now available for DOWNLOAD!

This version brings hardware encoding to macOS and VA-API encoding for Linux.
Meanwhile, the experimental GPU Effects mode, which was always unstable and
unsupported is made a truly advanced option by hiding it. Now, one can only
enable it by manually changing the configuration file/registry. To make things
easier a New Project screen was added, most Export options are hidden behind an
Advanced button, hardware encoding gets a checkbox, and a signed macOS build is
provided.

Additional information about the new features is available here.
