Hi people,

here it is, the newest Incarnation of Evil, uh, I meant mktoolnix
release. A lot of bug fixes, a couple of new features. The most
prominent new feature is probably... *drummroll* support for zlib
compressed VobSubs. Yes, Gabest is working hard on supporting them in
his demuxer, so they should become a reality for all of you very soon.

The URL, as always:
and the Windows binaries:

Here's the ChangeLog:
2003-11-05  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v0.7.5.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The VobSub .idx parser was dividing by 0 if
	a track only contained one entry.

	* mkvmerge: Fixed the timecode reader code and made it a bit more
	flexible. Added more documentation for this feature along with an
	example file (examples/example-timecodes.txt).

	* mmg: bug fix: When 'default track' is selected then all other
	tracks of the same type will have their 'default track' flag

	* mkvmerge: SPU packets belonging to the same timecode are grouped
	together, and the duration is extracted directly from the SPU

2003-10-29  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: The VobSubs are now stripped of the MPEG program
	stream, and only the SPU packets are kept.

2003-10-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge, mkvextract: The Matroska reader and the OGM reader
	(mkvmerge) as well as mkvextract will discard empty or 'cleaning
	only' subtitle packets as they are appear in OGMs in order to mark
	the end of an entry.

2003-10-27  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added the ability to read timecodes from
	text files which override the timecodes mkvmerge calculates

2003-10-26  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: bug fix: Add all the mandatory elements when
	extracting chapters so that the resulting XML can always be used
	directly with mkvmerge again without having to manually add
	e.g. ChapterLanguage.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix; Handle audio tracks from Matroska files with
	the CodecID A_MS/ACM correctly.

2003-10-25  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: Changes to use libmatroska's new lacing code.

2003-10-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The VobSub .idx parser was mis-calculating
	the subtitle entry frame sizes.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The Vorbis packetizer was miscalculating the
	number of samples to add/remove when using audio sync.

2003-10-22  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: new feature: Added a new menu entry "File -> new" which
	will clear all the current muxing settings.

	* mmg: Added support for VobSub subtitles including their
	compression options. Added the .m4a extension to the 'add file'

	* mmg: bug fix: Made the input boxes for file names (tags and
	chapters) editable so that their contents can be deleted.

	* mkvmerge: Adjusted the compression handling to the final content
	encoding specs.

2003-10-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Implemented generic support for frame
	compression (mostly useful for VobSub subtitles but could also be
	used for others) and the complete framework for handling content
	encodings in the Matroska reader.

2003-10-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvinfo: new feature: Dump unknown elements recursively.

2003-10-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Made the SRT reader more tolerant regarding
	empty lines.

Have fun! :)
