Another month, time for another release of MKVToolNix: v33.0.0. This is still a rather quiet time for MKVToolNix; hence this is another small bug fix release.
There’ve been no changes regarding packaging since the previous release.
You can download the source code or one of the binaries. The Windows and macOS binaries as well as the Linux AppImage are available already. The other Linux binaries are stil being built and will be available over the course of the next couple of hours.
Here are the NEWS since the previous release:
- mkvinfo: when using the
--sizeoption, mkvinfo will now report the
correctly if an element has an unknown size. Part of the fix of #2530.
- MKVToolNix GUI: info tool: clusters with an unknown size will now be read
and displayed correctly. Part of the fix of #2530.
- MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: Windows: trying to open Blu-ray index or
playlist files failed when the path to the files contained symbolic links
(e.g. when mounting a drive in a sub-folder via Windows’ disk management
utility). Fixes #2522.
- MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: if a destination file names ends with a number
in parenthesis (e.g. a year such as "(2017)"), that number will not be
stripped anymore during the process of ensuring the destination file name is
unique. Only those suffixes added automatically in prior attempts to make
the file name unique will be removed. Fixes #2521.
- MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: Windows: the GUI will let the user change the
drive letter part of the destination file name freely again and only verify
its validity right before starting to mux/adding to the job queue. Before it
tried to force that into something valid, often resulting in unintentional
paths (such as "C:\users\…\DC\files\…"). Fixes #2527.
Have fun :)
