MKVToolNix v9.4.0 released
Monday 22 August 2016 @ 5:40 pm

Time for the next release of MKVToolNix. This time it’s really just polishing of existing functionality.

Dear package maintainers: I have to say again that MKVToolNix v9.3.1 and later requires the recently released libEBML v1.3.4 and libMatroska v1.4.5. Even though both libraries are API and ABI compatible with their prior releases this only means that a program compiled against an older version of the library will still work when run against a newer version of the library.

However, MKVToolNix v9.3.1 and newer use features newly introduced in libMatroska v1.4.4. This means that you cannot compile MKVToolNix v1.4.5 and try to run it against v1.4.4 — that’ll fail with symbol lookup errors from ld.

I’ve received multiple reports of MKVToolNix v9.3.x packages that could be installed with libMatroska v1.4.4. This won’t work. Please make the dependency on v1.4.5+ explicit. Thanks.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. The Windows and Mac OS binaries are available. Most of the Linux binaries are still being built and will be available in a couple of hours.

Here’s the full ChangeLog since the previous release:

Have fun :)
