Great news! Long-waited things, and I'd bet many ppl are too lazy to OCR
even in Europe, and will welcome that.

Well, a guy from "PC Japan"( a major paper magazine
 in japan --> http://www.zdnet.co.jp/magazine/pcjapan/ )
has just asked me to write something about Matroska, like 6 pages
for the next issue of their magazine, which will be on sale on 13.nov.2003
If matroska/vsfilter supports SUB+IDX very soon, like in 7 days,
I can add about SUB+IDX supports and in that case
I promise I'll write "This filter is developed by Gabest, a godlike person,
we all have to thank him" in Japanese :D

Or else, I might write "SUB will be supported very soon,
but the developer in charge, Gabest, is now too busy because of his new gf!"
