I'm surprised that they released a new major version of it, but it's very much needed. Just tried it and it works really well. There are some minor changes to the look of the icon and buttons when the program is started. Also, this newer version now supports MKV, which I don't care much for, but still, for those who deal with a lot of MKV files, this will definitely be great to use.
There was one thing they fixed that sold me. When entering the time, I can simply type it in, and it moves from one column to the next as I do it, without me having to use my mouse at all. Earlier versions, had this capability, but in the later versions past 1.6, it was removed for some reason.
I use this a lot, because I have nothing but ".avi" files and I have to trim down a lot of big files. It works great when I need it. Would definitely recommend this software to just about anyone willing to try it.

This program is easy to use and is great as long as your dvd player will support the trimmed/split files. I made the mistake of editing out the credits of 10 episodes of Medium and found that they no longer worked in my Hitachi dvd player as a result. The files worked fine on my pc though. Be sure to make sure that the created avi files are compatable with your dvd first!

Great tool for trimming or spliting or cutting avi files. Unlike some other programs in the similar branch this one doesn't produce audio/video sync problems. The use is pretty straightforward. So no complaints on my part. Simple and does the job.
