    -------------------------
    FRAPS 2.9.0 RELEASE NOTES
    -------------------------

    The latest Fraps release adds support for Vista and DirectX 10
    games. With games starting to appear using DirectX 10 graphics we are
    happy to report that benchmarking, video capture, and screenshots are now
    all fully supported for these titles.

    Vista also includes a rewritten audio subsystem. Fraps can take
    advantage of this and directly record a sound stream from the machine
    without requiring any support from the soundcard driver. This allows you
    to capture ingame audio even if you are using a USB headset or other
    audio device which does not normally support a "Stereo Mix" or "What U
    Hear" recording input.

    Since the Vista Desktop Window Manager (DWM) runs through DirectX
    we have also added a new option to monitor the desktop under Vista. You
    can now take screenshots and record video from the desktop just like
    any other game or 3D application.


    ---------
    CHANGELOG
    ---------

    - Added suport for DirectX 10
    - Added option to monitor Desktop Window Manager under Vista
    - Added Direct Stream sound recording for Vista
    - Fixed screen tearing in video captured from DX9 games
    - Fixed G15 LCD output running fast on Vista machines
    - Improved resource sharing with multithreaded games
    - Added numerous crash and compatibility fixes

    As promised here is a clip using FRAPS 2.9.0 on Vista in the Lost Planet Game Demo (Direct X 10 Version)

    To download the 14mb Video Clip
    =========================

    IE: Right Click the link and select "save target as"

    FireFox: Right Click the link and select "save link as"

    The new version of FRAPS works great. Now if only more games would come out in DX10 (and widescreen would be nice, too.)

    Later,

    I'm still not impressed with that game.. perhaps crysis will change my mind, but until then, I fail to see any benefit of DX10 over DX9c, just a lot of "theoretical" gains, which in reality are never anywhere near as drastically notable.
