MKVToolNix v9.2.0 released
Saturday 28 May 2016 @ 12:49 pm

Time for MKVToolNix v9.2.0. It’s a somewhat unremarkable release with Several smaller issues having been addressed and no huge changes or enhancements.

One important change for Windows and Mac OS users of mkvinfo is that the change to start the GUI by default has been reverted. Instead a separate executable (mkvinfo-gui) is included for those platforms which starts the GUI by default. The newly introduced option --no-gui will remain valid but won’t have any effect when used with the “mkvinfo” executable.

There have been no changes for package maintainers since the previous release.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. The Windows and Mac OS binaries are available. Most of the Linux binaries are still being built and will be available in a couple of hours.

Please note that the Windows installers (but not the actual programs) accidentally include a build number from the start of May (20160504-01204). This is a solely cosmetic issue which can be ignored.

Here’s the full ChangeLog since the previous release:

Have fun :)

MKVToolNix v9.1.0 released
Saturday 23 April 2016 @ 4:59 pm

Here’s another release of MKVToolNix. Several bugs have been fixed. A rather important one is an update to the JSON library used which fixes immense memory consumption when loading stored settings (e.g. a ~500 KB JSON file leading to consumption of more than 2 GB of memory).

Enhancements include support for WebVTT subtitles, much improved support for teletext subtitles in MPEG transport streams and several more fields in the JSON/verbose identification formats.

There have been no changes for package maintainers since the previous release.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. The Windows and Mac OS binaries are available. Most of the Linux binaries are still being built and will be available in a couple of hours.

MKVToolNix v9.0.1 released
Monday 28 March 2016 @ 6:29 pm

Due to two nasty bugs in v9.0.0 I’ve decided to release a hotfix with v9.0.1 today. The first bug is a regression from v8.9.0 in the code handling character sets for text subtitle files. The other bug is in the new code for generating chapters automatically.

As the prior release v9.0.0 is only two days old I’m including v9.0.0’s full release announcement here:

Here’s another release of MKVToolNix. There were tons of bug fixes all over the place. The most important one is probably in the HEVC handler which won’t drop certain SEI NALUs anymore. This was a regression introduced in v8.7.0.

A change a lot of users of Windows and Mac OS will hopefully welcome is that mkvinfo launches with its GUI by default now unless the option “--no-gui” is given. Users of these two OSes often start mkvinfo by clicking on the executable instead of using start menu entries making adding the parameter “--gui” somewhat difficult. The behavior for other OSes has not been changed.

One of the new features is mkvmerge’s capability to generate chapters automatically whenever a new file is appended. Additionally it can also generate chapters in fixed intervals. This can be turned on in the GUI, of course.

There’s one change for package maintainers: a Korean translation of the programs and the man pages has been added.
