Heya guys & maintainers,

I've released a new version of mkvtoolnix: 0.8.0. It is mainly a bug fix
release containing a number of small bug fixes (there was really no show
stopper this time ;)) but also support for the new and simpler tagging
system (still no tag editor, but it'll come soon).

As a side note to those interested: This release does already contain
code to create native MPEG4 files with proper B frame support and stuff,
but due to various reasons this code is not activated by default. It'll
come later. When I've got this working more or less then I'll probably
start workingon reading video from MP4 files.

Happy new year.

nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
