I’ve released mkvtoolnix v7.4.0. It’s mostly a bug-fix release, though kind of important if you mux HEVC or teletext subtitles.
For packagers: nothing has changed since the previous release.
Here’s the full ChangeLog since the previous release:
- 2014-12-12 Moritz Bunkus <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Released v7.4.0.
- 2014-12-10 Moritz Bunkus <email@example.com>
- mkvmerge: bug fix: mkvmerge was sometimes dropping lines from teletext subtitles read from MPEG transport streams. See #773.
- 2014-12-05 Moritz Bunkus <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- mkvmerge: bug fix: The PCM packetizer was producing wrong track statistics by disregarding the last packet’s duration when reading PCM data from packaged sources (Matroska, MP4 files). Fixes #1075.
- build system: enhancement: configure will look for a system version of the pugixml library and use that instead of the bundled version if it is found. Fixes #1090.
- mkvextract: bug fix for chapter & tag extraction: If locale is set to a non-UTF locale (including C or POSIX) then no XML data was output at all even if the XML data contained ASCII characters only. Fixes #1086. This also fixes mkvextract writing two BOMs when extracting tags with the »–redirect-output« option on Windows.
- 2014-11-19 Moritz Bunkus <email@example.com>
