DVDStyler 2.5 implements subtle redesign, supports videos with no audio

Alex Thuring has released DVDStyler v2.5, a major new version of his open-source, cross-platform DVD authoring tool.

DVDStyler v2.5 makes
it possible to create video DVDs from a wide range of movie formats,
including most common ones, and comes with full menu-creation tools for
crafting the perfect video DVD.
Version 2.5, also available in portable form
for Windows PCs, comes with a number of notable new features, including
support for video files without audio streams, new frame spinning
controls and redesigned chapters and cell properties dialog boxes.
The most drastic design change has been implemented with the Chapters
and Cell Properties dialog boxes, where users must now double-click a
chapter entry to open a separate dialog box for placing chapter points
into the movie.
More subtle changes have been made to the Video Properties dialog too,
with  the Fade In/Out options are now placed side-by-side rather than
one on top of the other, while there’s a slight tweak to the timeline
slider too.
Version 2.5 also adds a new frame spinning control, but we could find
no evidence of it or how it works. Also added is support for a 700MB CD
disc, and version 2.5 also gives users the option of justifying text on
menus to the left and right.
DVDStyler 2.5 also adds support for video files that don’t contain any
audio streams, plus SMPTE time codes in the chapter list. Users can also
now set the default chapter length to zero in order to disable the
creation of chapters.
A number of minor fixes have been implemented, including rendering of
video buttons, and the display of the start and recording time. FFMPEG
has also been updated to version 1.2, and some minor translations
(Spanish – Argentina, and Hungarian) have been implemented.
DVD Styler v2.5
is a free, open-source download for Windows and Linux (the Mac version
should follow shortly). Also available for Windows users is DVD Styler Portable 2.5.
