2004-03-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v0.8.6.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: OGMs created by Cyrius OGMuxer are missing
	comment packets for some streams which mkvmerge choked on.

2004-03-10  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	files were not set in the GUI when adding such files.

2004-03-09  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: If the FourCC was set for one track it had been
	used for each track you selected as well.

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Tags are being kept when reading Matroska

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Large values for --sync (over 2100) would
	cause an integer overflow resulting in no sync being done at all.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The VobSub handling was broken if the .idx
	file contains an entry for a track ("id: en") but no "timestamp:"
	entries for such a track.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The segment UID was not generated if
	splitting was off.

	* mmg: new feature: Automatically set the output file name when
	the first file is added to the same name but with a '.mkv'
	extension if it hasn't been set yet. Can be disabled on the
	'settings' page.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: More of the non-ASCII character fixes (in

	overwriting an existing output file.

2004-02-29  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: No memory was allocated for the

2004-02-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	Umlaute are handled correctly.

2004-02-27  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Some RealMedia files contain several tracks
	for multirate stuff which are now ignored. Only tracks with known
	MIME types (audio/x-pn-realaudio and video/x-pn-realvideo) are

2004-02-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: Added a list of 'popular' languages on top of all language

If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
