Hi guys.

Time for another release. There have been a lot of changes since the
last week. One thing I'd really like you to try is to run mkvmerge under
Windows 98/Windows 2000. Several people reported problems and I'm eager
to know if the switch from cygwin to mingw32 solved this problem.

The release is available at


Windows binaries;


Ok, here's the ChangeLog since the last version:

2003-06-22  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Released v0.5.0.

        * Added 'ReferencePriority' element to the known elements for

        * Removed "(mkvinfo) " from mkvinfo's output in order to improve
        readability and save space.

        * --sub-charset now also needs a track ID.

        * Modified the verbosity levels for mkvinfo: The seek head subentries
        and cue subentries will only be shown at level 2 to make the 
        output easier to read. 

        * The language and default track settings are now kept again if
        not overridden when reading from Matroska files.

2003-06-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Added mkvextract which can extract tracks from a Matroska file
        into other files.

2003-06-20  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Switched from cygwin to MinGW32 for the Windows binaries.

        * Fixed a double free() on cleanup (after writing the cues) which
        resulted in a segfault sometimes.

        * Added a SSA/ASS reader.

2003-06-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Support for reading text subtitles from Matroska files.

        * Made the AAC reader automatically recognize if a MPEG4 AAC file
        contains the emphasis header (deprecated) or not (current standard).

 ==> Ciao, Mosu (Moritz Bunkus)
