a complete new player - that sounds interesting.
Can you give me more information about this player (status of development,
features,...)? When will a first testing version of this player be released?
This also means that first of all the playback of Matroska menus should
(100%) work and then you plan to think about writing Menu creation (and
manipulation) tools (or someone, who's not in the Matroska team starts
programming such a tool)?

all development power of the team is currently going into a complete new
player, which will also have MKV menue support. For this reason, there
is no work done on any other playback solution for the time being.
Especially a DShow based support is pain in the ass to do, so i fear
this won't be adressed in near future.
