Hey Matroska users and package maintainers,

time for the next release of mkvtoolnix, 2.4.1. There's only one new
feature: support for SRT/SSA tracks in AVI files. One important bug has
been fixed regarding the handling of timecodes during appending which
should fix A/V sync issues with appended tracks for most people. A
couple of smaller bugs have been fixed as well (see below for details).

The Linux binaries that I provide myself (Debian, Ubuntu, OpenSuSE and
Fedora Core) have already been uploaded and are available from the home

Starting with this release I provide pre-built packages for Fedora Core
10 (i386 and x86_64 architectures).

Here's the full ChangeLog since release 2.4.0:

2008-12-04  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v2.4.1.

	* Build system: bug fix: Configure does not use "uname -m" for the
	detection of the Boost libraries anymore but configure's "$target"
	environment variable. This fixes the Boost detection for cross
	compilation builds. Fix for bug 311. Patch by Dominik Mierzejewski
	(see AUTHORS).

2008-12-03  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: PCM audio tracks bigger than approximately 8
	GB were cut off after approximately 8 GB.

2008-12-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: mkvmerge recognizes SRT subtitle files with
	timecodes that contain spaces between the colons and the digits
	and timecodes whose numbers are not exactly two or three digits

2008-11-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: mmg processes window events much more often during

	* all: Updated the language code list from the offical ISO 639-2

2008-11-04  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: Split timecodes with more than three decimals were
	not allowed even though the docs say that they are. They are now,
	as mkvmerge supports such timecodes.

2008-11-03  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Changed the way mkvmerge calculates the
	timecodes when appending files. Should result in better
	audio/video synchronization.

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for reading SRT and SSA/ASS
	subtitles from AVI files (fix for bug 64).

2008-11-01  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: mkvmerge's LZO compressor would segfault if
	mkvmerge was compiled against v2 of the LZO library and the v1 LZO
	headers were not present.

2008-10-29  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: SRT subtitle files are also handled correctly
	if the timecode lines do not have spaces around the arrow between
	the start and end timecodes.

2008-10-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: bug fix: Matroska elements with binary data were
	output as garbage in XML files.

Have fun :)
