2007-02-06  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	are encoded with 14 bits per word.

2007-02-03  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: Added support for DTS files which use
	only 14 out of every 16 bits and which are not stored inside a WAV

2007-01-30  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge, mmg: Changed the default for the "NALU size length" to
	"4" and added a warning if "3" is used.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: File type detection for Qt/MP4 files which
	start with a "wide" atom has been fixed.

	* mmg: bug fix: The "NALU size length" drop down box is now also
	enabled for h.264 tracks read from AVIs and for h.264 tracks
	stored in "VfW compatibility mode" in Matroska files.

2007-01-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge, mmg: new feature: Extended the option
	"--default-track" so that it can be forced to "off" allowing the

	set. Fix for bug #224.

2007-01-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	CodecPrivate data if the AVCC did not contain the aspect ratio
	information. Fix for Bugzilla bug #225.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The Matroska reader passes the correct track
	number down to the AVC/h.264 ES packetizer in the case of "AVC
	in Matroska stored in VfW mode".

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed a crash (segmentation fault) in the
	AVC/h.264 ES handling code.

2007-01-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge, mkvextract, mkvinfo: new feature: Added support for
	using CodecState for signaling changes to CodecPrivate. It is used
	for MPEG-1/-2 video if it is turned on with "--engage

Have fun.
