[Matroska-general] Matroska in 2005

2005 should be an important year for our little baby Matroska. So far we 
have many small groups of people that like the format and use it 
where/when they can. The key features for the moment are the wide & 
"clean" subtitle support, as well as all possible codecs.

But in the coming days/weeks the format should be finalised with all the 
features we dreamt of having when we created Matroska. That's a huge 
step, since that means we can rely on things that won't change in the 
near future. Maybe a bigger and cleaner documentation on the format 
would help.

So what should happen after that ? Matroska alone is not worth anything. 
What people want (including ourselves) are some tools to use. That means 
a good video editor that could support all our features. And also be 
able to play them in their preferred audio/video player on their 
preferred OS. And those two are huge tasks, even bigger than creating 
Matroska and the few tools we have now.

I hope to count on you all to make these things become true and give 
Matroska the place it deserves (you'll judge for yourself).

Back to work...
