When it'll become stable, you'll need to actually buy a license to use it.
And it recontainers everything to MKV, which isn't so bad for most Blu-rays, but is not a good thing for DVDs.
Not true, actually. It doesn't always recontainer everything, but the method to do it is different between Blu-ray and DVD.
For Blu-ray, just use the Backup option. It outputs the entire decrypted disc structure, .m2ts and all.
For DVD, you can't use the Backup option. You have to start the streaming server, and then navigate through the web interface to where the vob file is. Either right-click->Save As..., or copy the URL and use a download tool like curl or wget to do it (the benefit of this tactic is that it can overcome the copy speed restrictions - I was only getting ~2 MB/s through Firefox but close to ~5 MB/s through curl). And it is both decrypted and still a vob file. It doesn't output the file structure, though, but it does put the titles forward as discrete files (which is what other DVD ripping tools like SmartRipper can do and doesn't really matter because of the fact that VTSes are dumb-split and can just be concatenated safely).
