Hey,

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...

...to the home page:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/

...to the source code:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/sources/mkvtoolnix-2.6.0.tar.bz2

...to the Windows installer:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/win32/mkvtoolnix-unicode-2.6.0-setup.exe

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:

------------------------------------------------------------
2009-03-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* 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.

2009-03-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* 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
	AUTHORS).

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
	wxWidgets.

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.
