MKVToolNix v12.0.0 released
Saturday 20 May 2017 @ 8:37 pm

Today I’ve released v12.0.0 of MKVToolNix. Not too many changes in this one, but at least one rather important bug fix in the HEVC/h.265 code that can result in invalid files. I therefore recommend everyone to update.

Windows users should note that starting with v11.0.0 the GUI requires Microsoft’s “Media Foundation” framework to be installed. This is the case out of the box on the consumer versions of Windows other than the N and KN variants of Windows 10. You’ll have to download and install it separate on N and KN. On server variants you can install the framework via the server administration console. See this FAQ entry for more details.

There have been no additional changes since v11.0.0 that package maintainers should be aware of.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. The Windows and macOS binaries have been built already and are available for download. The Linux binaries will be available later today.

Here’s the NEWS since the previous release:

New features and enhancements

Bug fixes

Have fun :)

MKVToolNix v11.0.0 released
Saturday 22 April 2017 @ 5:37 pm

Here’s release v11.0.0 of MKVToolNix. There have been several important bug fixes to the HEVC/h.265 and AVC/h.264 parsers. Among the fixed bugs are some that will silently produce invalid files. I therefore recommend everyone to update.

This release includes a couple of smaller enhancements to the GUI as well. Noteworthy is the implementation of features that have been requested several in the past: playing a sound or shutting down the computer after the current job’s been completed. The implementation is very flexible and not limited to those two actions, though.

There have been several changes the package maintainers should be aware of, see the section “build system changes” below.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. The Windows and macOS binaries have been built already and are available for download. The Linux binaries will be available later today.

It’s time for v9.9.0 of MKVToolNix. This is mostly a bug fix release. Especially the MP4 input module has received a lot of love. See below for details.

Important note for packagers: pre-built man pages are no longer included. Instead they’re built during compilation requiring xsltproc, the DocBook XSL stylesheets. Additionally the system version of pugixml can now be used. See the news below for details.
