Hey users and package maintainers,

I've released mkvtoolnix v2.4.2. The files are still being uploaded, but
here's the announcement anyway.

This release contains a number of smaller bug fixes and a minor new
feature. Nothing too exciting, I guess. The code has been reworked a bit
behind the scenes so that I think that the next release will feature a
German translation of all programs, and other translations will be easy
to add if I find some volunteers.

Here's the full ChangeLog since release 2.4.1:

2009-01-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v2.4.2.

2009-01-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: If subtitle files are appended to separate
	video files (e.g. two AVI and two SRT files) then the subtitle
	timecodes of the second and all following subtitle files were
	based on the last timecode in the first subtitle file instead of
	the last timecode in the first video file. Fix for bug 325.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Due to uninitialized variables mkvmerge would
	report OGM files as having arbitrary display dimensions. Fix for
	bug 326.

2009-01-08  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge, mmg: enhancement: Implemented MIME type detection for
	attachments with libmagic on Windows.

2009-01-03  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: If a Matroska file containing attachments was
	used as an input file and splitting was enabled then the
	attachments were only written to the first output file. Now
	they're written to each output file. Partial fix for bug 324.

2008-12-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: Decreased the time mkvmerge needs for
	parsing Quicktime/MP4 header fields.

2008-12-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The parser for the simple chapter
	format (CHAPTERxx=...) can now handle more than 100 chapters. Fix
	for bug 320.

	* mmg: bug fix: The commands "Save command line" and "Create
	option file" did not save mmg's current state but the state it was
	in when the command "Show command line" was last used or when mmg
	was started.

2008-12-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed a crash (segfault) with MPEG-4 part 2
	video if "--engage native_mpeg4" is used. Fix for bug 318.

2008-12-08  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Windows installer: The installer cleans up leftovers from old
	installations during an upgrade. It doesn't write registry entries
	for an exe called "AppMainExe.exe" anymore. It asks whether or not
	the user wants a shortcut on the desktop. It does not install the
	document for base64tool anymore because base64tool itself isn't
	installed anymore either. Fixes for bugs 314, 315, 316 and 317.

	* mmg: bug fix: Fixed a compilation problem with non-Unicode
	enabled wxWidgets. Fix for bug 313.

2008-12-05  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for reading the pixel
	aspect ratio from Theora video tracks.

Have fun.


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
