MKVToolNix v17.0.0 released
Saturday 14 October 2017 @ 5:08 pm

Here’s release v17.0.0 of MKVToolNix. The rather short timespan since the previous release is due to a nasty bug in the VC-1 code that a lot of people are hitting with v16.

Other important changes are the overhaul of mkvextract’s command line interface and all programs using the word “timestamp” instead of “timecode” (which also affects mkvmerge’s command line interface). See the news below for more information.

There were no changes for package maintainers.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. The Windows and macOS binaries are available already. The Linux binaries are stil being built and will be available of the course of the next couple of hours.

Here are the NEWS since the previous release:

New features and enhancements
