VirtualDub 1.7.8 released

1.7.8 is out -- fetch!

Not really anything new, just a bunch of bug fixes. Most of them are for bugs and crashes in the capture module, but there are a couple that hit the editing module as well.

Those of you who frequent the forums know that I've been putting a lot of changes into another release, which was labeled as 1.7.X in test builds. That build is also nearly completed and is going to become the new 1.8.0 experimental build after it passes final checks to make sure it has an acceptably low level of stupid bugs. Unlike the jump from 1.6.x to 1.7.x, there will be no jump in minimum system requirements for 1.8.x; pretty much the only time that happens is when I'm forced to do so, and I'm not switching to VS2008 this time.

Changelist after the jump.
