Is mpeg2 hardware encoding gone?

Hi, in the latest version of shotcut the hardware encoding configuration does not show the mpeg2 encoder anymore even if vaapi supports it in my system. Is this expected? When was the change made?

MPEG-2 was never included in the Configure Hardware Encoding dialog, and I do not plan to. But that does not mean you cannot use it, if available in Export > Codec. That just means it is not managed by the Export UI, and you must do it, possibly through a custom preset.
