I've released mkvtoolnix v2.6.0. This release contains two new features
(a header editor for existing Matroska files and a Japanese translation)
and a couple of bug fixes dealing with charset and translation issues.

Here are the usual links...

Some of the binaries are still being built and should be available
within the next two hours.

Here's the full ChangeLog since release 2.5.3:

	* Released v2.6.0.

2009-03-22  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: new feature: Added a header editor for Matroska files.

2009-03-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: bug fix: The "simple" chapter extraction mode (OGM
	style chapter output) outputs strings converted to the system's
	current charset by default now instead of always converting to
	UTF-8. This can be overridden with the "--output-charset" command
	line option. Fix for bug 359.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: QuickTime audio tracks will be stored with
	the CodecID "A_QUICKTIME". The CodecPrivate element contains the
	full "STSD" element from the QuickTime file (just like
	V_QUICKTIME). This method is used for all audio tracks which don't
	have a well-defined storage spec for Matroska (e.g. AAC, AC3,
	MP2/3 are still stored as A_AC3, A_AAC etc). Hopefully a fix for
	bugs 354 and 357.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The CodecPrivate element for QuickTime video
	tracks like Sorenson Video Codecs contained wrong data. Fix for
	bug 355.

	* all: Added a Japanese translation by Hiroki Taniura (see

2009-03-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed detection of little endian PCM tracks
	in MOV files. Fix for bug 356.

2009-03-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: bug fix: The charset for text output was not
	initialized correctly resulting in garbled display of non-ASCII
	characters in non-UTF-8 locales.

	* all: bug fix: A couple of translated strings were converted from
	the wrong locale when they were displayed.

	* mmg, mkvinfo: The GUIs now require an Unicode-enabled version of

2009-03-14  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* all: bug fix: The tools use the API call "GetOEMCP()" on Windows
	instead of "GetACP()". This should make messages output in cmd.exe
	come out correctly for Windows versions for which cmd.exe uses a
	different code page than the rest (e.g. on German Windows).

2009-03-08  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvinfo: enhancement: If mkvinfo is started in GUI mode on
	Windows then the console that was started with it will be closed.

	* mkvinfo: bug fix: Chapter names and tag elements were recoded to
	the wrong charset resulting in garbled output. Fix for bug 353.

Have fun.

nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
