I've released mkvtoolnix v2.9.5. This release contains contains the
usual mix of bug fixes, new features and smaller enhancements. Also some
of the command line options have been renamed (check the ChangeLog for
details). The old versions are still working for the time being, and
users of mmg aren't affected by this change anyway.

Here are the usual links...

The Linux binaries that I provide myself have already been uploaded.

Here's the full ChangeLog since release 2.9.0:

	* Released v2.9.5.

2009-06-06  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The handling of TrueHD/MLP audio in MPEG
	program streams was broken resulting in many dropped packets.

	* all: bug fix: There was the possibility that invalid memory
	access occured and e.g. mkvmerge crashed on systems with the
	posix_fadvise() function (mainly Linux) if mkvmerge was opening
	several files from certain file systems (e.g. VFAT). Apart from
	obvious crashes the only other side effect was that the
	posix_fadvise() function would not be used resulting in slightly
	worse I/O performance.

2009-05-31  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Improved the control over which tags get
	copied from a source file to the output file. The old option
	"--no-tags" was replaced with the new options "--no-global-tags"
	which causes global tags not to be copied and "--no-track-tags"
	which causes track specific tags to not be copied. The new option
	"--track-tags" can be used to select tracks for which tags will be
	copied. The default is still to copy all existing tags.

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Included chapters, global and track
	specific tracks in the output of mkvmerge's identification mode.

	* mkvmerge: Renamed a couple of command line options to make the
	command line interface more consistent: "--no-audio",
	"--no-video", "--no-subtitles", "--no-buttons", "--audio-tracks",
	"--video-tracks", "--subtitle-tracks", "--button-tracks". The old
	versions of these options "--noaudio", "--novideo", "--nosubs",
	"--nobuttons", "--atracks", "--vtracks", "--stracks" and
	"--btracks" still work.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The sequence header of MPEG-1/2 video tracks
	is put into the CodecPrivate again while still leaving sequence
	headers in the bitstream as well. This is more compatible with
	some existing parsers.

2009-05-30  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: Removed the check if the user has added
	tracks and files before starting mkvmerge because mkvmerge itself
	is able to create track-less files (e.g. chapters only). Fix for
	bug 402.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Improved the handling of consecutive AC3
	packets with the same timecode (e.g. if AC3 is read from MP4
	files). Fix for bug 403.

2009-05-27  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed an endless loop in the TrueHD code
	occuring when the TrueHD stream is damaged somewhere.

2009-05-26  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed the detection of MPEG transport streams
	with other packet sizes than 188 bytes (e.g. 192 and 204 bytes).

2009-05-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The detection of invalid padding packet
	lengths in the MPEG program stream reader was improved to not
	produce as many false positives. Patch by Todd Schmuland (see
	AUTHORS). Fix for bug 393.

2009-05-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for the FourCCs ".mp3" and
	"XVID" in QuickTime files.

	* mmg: bug fix: Pressing 'return' in the job dialog will close the
	dialog on Windows, too. Fix for bug 392.

2009-05-22  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: Fixed the behaviour of how mmg sets the output
	file name automatically if the option is enabled. If the user adds
	more than one file then the extension of the output file name is
	set each time a file is added and not only when the first one
	is. The full file name and path will only be set when the first
	file is added. Fix for bug 391.

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
