The binaries for other distributions are already up and availabel from
the home page.

Now to the ChangeLog since 1.4.1:

 * Released v1.4.2.

 * mkvmerge: bug fix: In rare occasions involving B frames mkvmerge
 freed data too early. In such a case it was eating more and more
 memory finally exiting with a message about not finding a packet
 for a "bref".

2005-04-09  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

 * all: bug fix: My output functions did not work on AMD64
 systems. Fixes Anthill bug 120.

2005-04-07  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

 * mkvextract: new feature: Added the extraction of the raw
 data with the "--raw" and "--fullraw" flags. Patch by Steve Lhomme
 (see AUTHORS).

 * mkvextract: bug fix: WAVPACK extraction did not update the
 "number of samples" header field. Patch by Steve Lhomme (see

 * mkvmerge: bug fix: RealMedia files contain a "FPS" field in
	their track headers. Unfortunately this field does not always
	contain the actual FPS of a video track but the maximum number of
	FPS that the encoder has output or should output. Therefore
	mkvmerge does not use a "default duration" element for RealVideo
	tracks anymore. Fixes Anthill bug 113.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Failing calls to posix_fadvise upon adding a
	file to mmg caused mmg to think that the file identification
	failed. Now warnings for posix_fadvise are not output anymore, and
	posix_fadvise is silently switched off for that file. Fixes
	Anthill bug 123.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Appending files that were created with
	mkvmerge's "--link" option was broken. The timecodes for both the
	chapters and the actual media data blocks were not adjusted
	correctly. Fixes Anthill bugs 115 and 116.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: If chapters are present in several appended
	files and there were atoms who shared the same UID then those
	entries were present multiple times in the output files. Now such
	entries are merged into one chapter entry. Fixes the second part
	of Anthill bug 122.

2005-04-06  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: If chapters were present and splitting was
	enabled then mkvmerge would not treat chapters correctly that
	spanned across several files. Now the spanning chapters are kept
	in all files, and their start timecodes are adjusted accordingly.
	Fixes the first part of Anthill bug 122.

2005-03-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvinfo: bug fix: On Windows mkvinfo was linked without the
	console subsystem resulting in no output at all if run without the
	GUI (-g). Fixes Anthill Bug 118.

2005-03-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Due to the compiler doing some strange number
	conversion mkvextract seemed to hang on Windows with certain

2005-03-20  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Appending VobSubs with more than one track in
	a .idx file and video files at the same time was broken resulting
	in parts of some of the VobSub tracks not ending up in the
	resulting Matroska file. Fixes Anthill bug 114.

2005-03-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The track numbers were assigned wrongly when
	appending tracks (this is more or less cosmetic).

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Splitting by time was broken for audio-only
	files. Fixes Anthill bug 112.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The --fourcc switch was not working.

2005-03-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: Tracks that were not selected on saving the
	settings file were selected after loading a settings file.

Have a nice weekend :)


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
