I'm pleased to announce the second alpha release of our next
generation encoder for the free Theora video format, codename
"thusnelda". The second release incorporates a number of changes which
improve both compression efficiency and execution speed.

This release includes working MSVC project files, but the assembly
optimization hasn't yet been ported, so performance there will still
be slow. We recommend the xmingw32 build (cross compiled with gcc) if
performance on Windows is important.
