Hey guys,

after nearly two months I'm releasing a new version, 1.6.5. Tons of bug
fixes, a couple of new features. The usual mix ;)

The other binaries are still being built and will be available shortly.

Finally the ChangeLog excerpt since the previous version:

-------------------
2005-12-07  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v1.6.5.

2005-12-06  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* source: bug fix: Changed the list of ISO 639 languages so that
	the terminology versions are converted into the bibliography
	versions of the 639-2 codes (e.g. use "ger" instead of "deu" for
	the German language). Converted almost all pieces of mkvmerge and
	mmg to accept ISO 639-1, 639-2 codes (both bibliography and
	terminology versions) and the languages' English names. Those will
	always be converted to the 639-2 code. Fixes Anthill bug #171.

2005-12-05  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The country code used in XML chapter files
	was checked against the list of ISO 639-1 codes and not against
	the list of ccTLDs. Partial bugfix for Anthill bug #171.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: When appending tracks and using timecodes the
	timecodes were only used for the first track in a chain of
	tracks. This has been changed so that you must specify only one
	timecode file in such cases (e.g. "mkvmerge ... --timecodes
	0:my_timecodes.txt part1.avi +part2.avi"). mmg has already been
	working like this. Fixes Anthill bug #162.

2005-12-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* source: new feature: Added support for linking against liblzo2
	(same compression algorithm, just a new library version). Patch by
	Diego Pettenò (see AUTHORS).

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added a workaround for files created by
	Gabest's DirectShow Matroska muxer with slightly broken frame
	references. Fixes Anthill bug #172.

	* mkvextract: new feature: attachment extraction mode: Made the
	output file name optional. If it is missing (e.g. "mkvextract
	attachments source.mkv 92385: 124981:") then the name of the
	attachment inside the Matroska file is chosen instead. Patch by
	Sergey Hakobyan (see AUTHORS).

	* mkvmerge: new feature: If an output file name contains
	directories that don't exist then they're created. Patch by Sergey
	Hakobyan (see AUTHORS) with modifications by myself.

2005-11-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Don't abort reading a Matroska if the next
	element is not a cluster. This is the case for e.g. files produced
	by Haali's muxer which writes the segment tracks element in
	intervals. Fixes Anthill bug #169.

2005-11-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: Fixed a problem with the selection of language
	codes for chapters in the chapter editor.

2005-11-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: If at least or more attachments were present
	and the user used --attachment-name for each of them (as mmg does)
	then mkvmerge was wrongly outputting a warning about multiple uses
	of --attachment-name for a single attachment.

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added limited support for edit lists in
	MP4/QuickTime files. Fixes Anthill bug #151.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: MP4/QuickTime files which contain another
	atom before the 'avcC' atom in the video track headers weren't
	correctly remuxed.

2005-11-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: mkvmerge will now refuse to append AVC/h.264
	video tracks whose codec initialization data blocks do not
	match. Invalidates Anthill bug #163.

2005-11-12  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed a crash If the granulepos (the
	timecodes) reset in the middle of an Ogg/OGM file. Fixes Anthill
	bug #166.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed a division-by-zero error in the
	RealMedia demuxer. Fixes Anthill bug #161.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed a couple of potential (and actual)
	segmentation faults by accessing invalid memory addresses. Initial
	patch for the VobSub reader by Issa on Doom9's forum.

2005-11-04  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge, mmg: new feature: The names of attached files can be
	set with a new option --attachment-name or on mmg's "Attachments"
	page.

2005-11-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed another bug when appending AVC/h.264
	tracks that would mkvmerge cause to die with "bref_packet ==
	NULL". Fixes Anthill bug #160.

2005-11-01  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: When the user saved the muxing output in a log
	file that file didn't use Windows line endings (CR LF) on
	Windows.

	* mmg: bug fix: Appending tracks was broken because the track
	numbers in the command line were incorrect. Fixes Anthill bug
	#160.

2005-10-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for Ogg/Theora.

2005-10-22  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: Changed the CodecID for AAC audio tracks to "A_AAC" by
	default The CodecPrivate contains the same initialization data
	that are stored in the ESDS in MP4 files for AAC tracks. The old
	CodecIDs (e.g. "A_AAC/MPEG4/SBR") can be turned on again with
	"--engage old_aac_codecid".

2005-10-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvinfo: new feature: The sub elements of the EBML head are
	now shown.

	* mkvinfo: new feature: Added support for the new SimpleBlock.

	* mkvextract: new feature: Added support for the new SimpleBlock.

	* mkvmerge, mmg: new feature: Added support for the new
	SimpleBlock instead of BlockGroups (only available via "--engage
	use_simpleblock" for now). Patch by Steve Lhomme (see AUTHORS)
	with fixes by myself.

Have fun :)
