MKVToolNix v7.0.0 released
Tuesday 10 June 2014 @ 6:47 pm

Hey,

I’ve released mkvtoolnix v7.0.0. It’s a release that includes a couple of minor enhancements to mmg and mkvmerge and the usual bug fixes (nothing major – though some more cases of overly long file detection times have been fixed).

The most prominent change is that mkvmkerge will now write certain track-specific statistics (such as bit rate) as tags. See the ChangeLog for more details. Accompanying this change is that mkvmerge’s verbose identification mode will now include the track’s tags as well in order to make retrieving that information easier for other programs.

For packagers: this build requires Boost’s Date/Time library.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. Note that binaries for 6.9.1 are still being built and may not be available for download yet.

Here’s the full ChangeLog since release 6.9.1:

Have fun.

MKVToolNix v6.9.1 released
Friday 18 April 2014 @ 4:19 pm

Hey,

I’ve released MKVToolNix 6.9.1 mere hours after the release of 6.9.0 due to a severe bug that wasn’t present in 6.8.0. Here’s the combined announcement for both releases.

There were the usual bug fixes all over the place. No major new features, but it was time for a new release.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. Note that binaries for 6.9.1 are still being built and may not be available for download yet.

MKVToolNix v6.8.0 released
Monday 3 March 2014 @ 6:30 pm

Hey,

I’ve released MKVToolNix 6.8.0. There were tons of bug fixes for the Windows builds, especially for the 64bit builds.

The one new feature that is present is support for h.265/HEVC video: but only for reading it from elementary streams or from other Matroska files. My initial plan was to have reading it from MPEG transport streams work as well, but alas, free time is in short supply, and this release is a week overdue already.

The HEVC support has been implemented by Rovi Corp (DivX). I’ve merged their changes, updated them to the current code base and cleaned them up somewhat. Their work is much appreciated.

For package maintainers nothing has changed compared to 6.7.0.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries.

MKVToolNix v6.7.0 released
Wednesday 8 January 2014 @ 10:33 pm

Hey,

I’ve release v6.7.0 of MKVToolNix. It contains tons of bug fixes all over the place, but also a couple of enhancements. The most important bug fix is probably the change to how MPLS files are handled (see below).

This is the first release for which I’m providing 64bit binaries for Windows as well. They offer the same functionality as the 32bit binaries. Versions can be distinguished in their version number output as well as mmg’s »about« dialog.

Please note that the Windows installer and portable archive do not contain the word »Unicode« anymore. That’s not because they don’t support Unicode; they do. It’s just that the last release without Unicode support was v2.something quite a lot of years ago, and there’s simply no reason to point out the Unicode-awareness anymore.

There’s one change for package maintainers: Ruby 1.9.x is now required for building. I don’t support 1.8.x anymore. This should not be a problem for current distributions anyway.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries.

Here’s the full ChangeLog since release 6.6.0:

Have fun.
