MKVToolNix v3.4.0 released

I’ve released MKVToolNix v3.4.0. This release contains several important bug fixes and a few new features. Two new translations (Russian and Ukrainian) have been added.

There are two changes for package maintainers: 1. the two new translations I’ve mentioned and 2. MKVToolNix requires the new releases of libebml v0.8.0 and libmatroska v0.9.0.

Here are the usual links to the home page, to the source code, to the Windows installer and the 7zip archive.

All binaries that I provide myself have already been uploaded.

Please see the full ChangeLog for a list of changes since the previous release, v3.3.0.

libebml v0.8.0 and libmatroska v0.9.0 released

The Matroska team has released libebml v0.8.0 and libmatroska v0.9.0. These releases mostly add new macros and API entries to make a smooth transition to libebml2 & libmatroska2 that are coded in C (with a C++ legacy layer). It also fixes a memory freeing bug that was triggered in VLC. The next MKVToolNix release will require the new versions of both libraries.

Nothing should have changed from a package maintainer’s point of view.

Binary packages for Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora Core and OpenSuSE are available at the MKVToolNix downloads page.
