MKVToolNix v7.3.0 released

Hey,

I’ve released mkvtoolnix v7.3.0. It implements support for PCM in MPEG program (.vob – DVDs) and transport streams (.ts, .m2ts – Blu-rays, television broadcasts) as well as for teletext subtitles in MPEG tranport streams. Apart from that a lot of work has gone into the new GUI.

For packagers: nothing has changed since the previous release.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries.

Here’s the full ChangeLog since the previous release:

  • 2014-10-22 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • Released v7.3.0.
  • 2014-10-11 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • mkvmerge: new feature: implemented support for reading teletext subtitles from MPEG transport streams. They’re converted to SRT-style subtitles (CodecID S_TEXT/UTF8). Implements #773.
  • 2014-10-07 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • mkvmerge: bug fix: probing MPEG transport streams with certain types of broken MPEG-2 inside caused mkvmerge to exit with an error message. Such tracks are now ignored instead.
  • 2014-09-29 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • mkvmerge, mmg’s chapter editor: fixed the default value for the»language« element if it isn’t present in a chapter XML file.
  • 2014-09-28 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • MKVToolNix GUI: implemented drag & drop in the files pane.
  • 2014-09-26 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • mkvinfo (Qt version on Windows): bug fix: the console window is closed if the GUI is launched.
  • 2014-09-25 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • mkvmerge: bug fix: Reading tracks from MPEG transport streams resulted in the track being cut off at points with a five minute gap in between frames. It is due to timecode wrap detection introduced in v6.9.0. As it affects subtitles the most the wrap detection has been relaxed for them.
  • 2014-09-20 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • MKVToolNix GUI: implemented drag & drop in the track pane.
  • 2014-09-17 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • mkvmerge: new feature: added support for PCM in MPEG program streams (.vob – DVDs) and transport streams (.ts, .m2ts – Blu-rays). Implements #763.
  • 2014-09-16 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • MKVToolNix GUI: fixed missing command line switch for audio sync/stretch.
  • 2014-09-15 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • MKVToolNix GUI: implemented drag & drop in the job queue.
  • 2014-09-14 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
    • MKVToolNix GUI: implemented storing the job queue when the application exits and retrieving it when it starts again.
    • Installer: bug fix: the shortcut for the GUI preview on the desktop is removed upon uninstallation. If the user opts not to have shortcuts on the desktop then no shortcut is created for the GUI preview either.
    • MKVToolNix GUI: fixed clearing the file/track/attachment lists when starting a new config or when loading an existing one.
    • MKVToolNix GUI: implemented setting the output file name automatically in four different modes (don’t set at all; place in previous output directory; place in fixed output directory; place in parent directory of first source file) with an option to make them unique by appending a running number.
    • MKVToolNix GUI: implemented setting the file title automatically from added files that already have a title.

Have fun.
