I've just released another bug fix release: 0.6.4. It will probably be
the last bug fix release from the 0.6.x line. Time for some new features

There have been a lot of bug fixes in almost all parts of
mkvtoolnix. Some only fix things that happen seldom while others fix
critical stuff.

A note for the Windows users: You should upgrade Gabest's Matroska
filter to the newest version which was released today. Here's the link:

Linux users should update mplayer. This has something to do with the
meta seek changes which are described in the ChangeLog and in mkvmerge's
documentation under the heading 'MATROSKA FILE LAYOUT'.

Here's the ChangeLog:

2003-08-27  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Released v0.6.4.

        * mkvextract: Support for re-creating dropped frames when
        extracting video to an AVI. Works only well if the frame durations
        in the source file are multiples of the frame rate, of course.

        * mkvmerge: The MP3 packetizer did not start at 0 with its
        timecodes. It does now.

        * mkvmerge: Proper support for dropped frames when reading AVI files.

        * mkvmerge: Fixed some missing default values in the Matroska
        reader (e.g. mono audio files). Reported by Liisachan.

2003-08-25  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: Improved all command line parsing error messages.

        * mkvmerge: Improved the error message for the XML tag file parser
        if an invalid &-sequence is found.

        * mkvextract: Strings are postprocessed so that the special
        characters &, <, >, " are replaced by their HTML equivalents
        &, &lt, > and ".

2003-08-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: Disabled lacing by default and renamed --no-lacing to
        --enable-lacing. With all the proper info about the laced frames
        lacing is actually producing larger files than without lacing.

        * mkvmerge: Meta seek element is split into two elements. The
        first's located at the start of the file containing only a small
        number of level 1 elements. The clusters are referenced in a
        second meta seek element located at the end of the file. Removed
        the options "--meta-seek-size" and "--no-meta-seek". Added the
        option to disable that second meta seek entry,

2003-08-22  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvextract: Backwards compatibility: Accepts S_SSA and S_ASS as
        valid CodecIDs (new CodecIDs are S_TEXT/SSA and S_TEXT/ASS).

        * mkvmerge: Bugfix: If a subtitle packet was the last packet in a
        cluster then its duration was not written resulting in a broken file.

2003-08-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvinfo: Added support for the following elements:
        KaxPrevFilename, KaxNextFilename, KaxTrackFlagEnabled,
        KaxTrackName, KaxCodecName, KaxCodecSettings, KaxCodecInfoURL,
        KaxCodecDownloadURL, KaxCodecDecodeAll, KaxTrackOverlay,
        KaxAudioPosition, KaxAudioOutputSamplingFreq, KaxVideoDisplayUnit,
        KaxVideoColourSpace, KaxVideoGamma, KaxVideoFlagInterlaced,
        KaxVideoStereoMode, KaxVideoAspectRatio, KaxClusterPosition,
        KaxClusterPrevSize, KaxBlockVirtual, KaxBlockAdditions,
        KaxBlockMore, KaxBlockAddID, KaxBlockAdditional,
        KaxReferenceVirtual, KaxSliceBlockAddID, KaxChapters,
        KaxEditionEntry, KaxChapterAtom, KaxChapterUID,
        KaxChapterTimeStart, KaxChapterTimeEnd, KaxChapterTrack,
        KaxChapterTrackNumber, KaxChapterDisplay, KaxChapterString,
        KaxChapterLanguage, KaxChapterCountry
