mkvtoolnix v4.3.0 released
Sunday 5 September 2010 @ 12:19 pm

I’ve released mkvtoolnix v4.3.0. It contains a lot of bug fixes and a few enhancements but no major new features.

There’s one change for people building from source in general and package maintainers in particular: the build system has been changed from “make” to “rake”. Here’s the ChangeLog entry:

build system: The build system has been changed from “make” to “rake”, the Ruby based build tool. MKVToolNix includes its own copy of it so all you need is to have Ruby itself installed. The build proecss has been tested with Ruby 1.8.6, 1.8.7 and 1.9.1. Building is pretty much the same as before: “./configure”, “./drake”, “sudo ./drake install”. Most of the build targets have similar if not identical names, e.g. “./drake install”. You can override variables just like with make, e.g. “./drake prefix=/somewhere install”.

Adjusting build scripts should be easy enough. If you need any help just let me know.

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

All binaries that I provide myself have already been uploaded.

Here’s the full ChangeLog since release 4.2.0:

Have fun.
