2005-08-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v1.5.5.

	* mkvtoolnix: Disabled storing AVC/h.264 video tracks in VfW mode.

2005-08-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvtoolnix: bug fix: On Windows the command line output was
	terminated with CR CR NL instead of just CR NL.

2005-08-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The Quicktime/MP4 reader wasn't skipping
	unknown elements correctly.

2005-08-03  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: new feature: Added a new extraction mode for
	outputting timecodes in a timecode v2 format file. It is called
	"timecode_v2" and takes the same arguments as the "tracks"
	extraction mode.

	* mkvinfo: new feature: Added a command line switch
	"--output-charset" which sets the charset that strings read from
	Matroska files are output in (e.g. if you want the output in UTF-8
	and not your system's local charset).

	* mkvinfo: new feature: Added a command line switch "-o" for
	redirecting the output to a file (for systems which re-interpret
	stdout).

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The combination of using external timecode
	files and video tracks with B frames was not working as
	intended. The user had to order the timecodes in the timecode file
	just like the frames were ordered (meaning the timecodes for a
	IPBBP sequence with 25 FPS had to be "0", "120", "40,
	"80"...). This has been fixed. They have to be ascending again and
	mkvmerge will assign them properly.

2005-08-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: new feature: Added support for extracting h.264 /
	AVC tracks into proper h.264 ES streams supported by
	e.g. MP4Box. Patch by Matt Rice (see AUTHORS).

2005-07-25  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvinfo: bug fix: Files with non-ASCII chars weren't opened
	because conversion to UTF-8 was done before the charset routines
	were initialized.

2005-07-20  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed a crash if a track in a MP4/QuickTime
	file did not contain a STCO atom (chunk table) but a STSC atom
	(chunk map table).

2005-07-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Very large values were not kept correctly for
	a lot of elements (meaning they were truncated to 16 or 32 bits).

	* mkvinfo: bug fix: Very large values were not displayed correctly
	for a lot of elements (meaning they were truncated to 16 or 32
	bits prior to displaying).

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: AVC/H.264 references were wrong, and muxing
	of AVC from Matroska files with proper references resulted in
	unplayable files.

2005-07-08  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed support for USF subtitles stored in
	UTF-16 and UTF-32. Added support for USF subtitles stored in UTF-8
	without a BOM.
