Hey guys,

It's been over two and a half months since the last release, and that's
quite a long time. But here it is: MKVToolNix v1.5.0.

This release contains a couple of new features (splitting after
arbitrary timecodes and muxing of USF subtitles) and tons of bug fixes.

The usual links to...
...the home page:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/
...the sources:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/sources/mkvtoolnix-1.5.0.tar.bz2
...the Windows Unicde binaries:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/win32/mkvtoolnix-unicode-1.5.0-setup.exe

The other binaries are all available from the home page.

Here's the ChangeLog of what I've done in those past ten weeks:
-----------------------------------------
2005-06-26  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The track language read from old Matroska
	files was wrongfully set to "und" if it was not written although
	the specs say that "eng" is the default value.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: USF subtitles: If identical tags were nested
	(e.g. "font") and both were closed right after each other then the
	result looked like "</font/>".

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Native MPEG-4 was not working if read from
	OGM files.

2005-06-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: new feature: Added an input box for mkvmerge's new "split
	after these timecodes" feature.

2005-06-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fixes: Improved the native MPEG-4 generation a lot
	(thanks to Haali for testing and pushing me). The codec version
	string inside the MPEG-4 initialization data is now checked if it
	indicates "DivX packed bitstream" and changed to not indicate it
	anymore.

2005-06-07  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: If mmg was minimized when it was closed (e.g. with
	Windows' "Show desktop" function) then it didn't show up after a
	restart and could only be shown by maximizing it.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: If a OGM style chapter file contains empty
	chapter names ('CHAPTER01NAME=' without something after the '=')
	then this chapter's timecode is used as the name instead of
	aborting.

2005-06-05  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added splitting after specific
	timecodes.

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

	* mkvmerge, mkvinfo, mkvextract: bug fix: Inifite sized segments
	were not handled correctly.

2005-05-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: On Windows mmg could be crashed by adding a file
	and clicking into the empty space in the "track" selection
	box. Fixes Anthill bug 133.

	* mkvextract: new feature: Implemented the extraction of USF
	subtitles.

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Implemented the muxing of USF subtitles.

2005-05-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: bug fix: The MPEG packets are now padded to 2048
	byte boundaries as some programs require them to be. Patch by  
	Mike Matsnev (see AUTHORS).

2005-05-07  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvinfo: bug fix: Removed the restriction of max. ten levels of
	nested elements.

	* mmg: bug fix: If splitting was enabled and "splitting by time"
	selected and the user chose "new" from the "File" menu then
	"splitting by time" was not selectable anymore. This happened
	only on Windows. Fixes Anthill bug 131.

2005-05-05  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: bug fix: Use the native newline style when
	extracting text subtitles (\r\n on Windows and \n on all other
	systems).

	* mkvextract: bug fix: SSA/ASS text was missing in the output if
	the "Format=" line contained newlines at the end of the
	CodecPrivate data (e.g. our old Mew Mew sample file).

2005-05-03  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for the ChapterSegmentUID
	element.

2005-04-29  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Support WAV files that use other RIFF chunks
	than the usual "fmt " followed by "data".

2005-04-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Remuxing MPEG1/2 tracks resulted in a failing
	"assert(0)".
-----------------------------------------

Have fun :)
