Hey,

I've released mkvtoolnix v4.1.0. This release features a couple of bug
fixes and enhancements especially in combination with WebM and full
support for PGS/SUP subtitles. There's a new translation of the programs
into Spanish and of the manual pages into Dutch. The Russian translation
has received a huge update.

There are a couple of changes for package maintainers:

1. the new translations I've mentioned,

2. new .desktop and .xml files for menu and MIME type integration
(installed into $datadir/applications and $datadir/mime/packages
respectively; they're only installed if the GUIs are activated)

3. icons for the GUI applications (installed into
$datadir/icons/hicolor/<size>; they're only installed if the GUIs are
activated)

Here are the usual links...

Here's the full ChangeLog since release 4.0.0:

------------------------------------------------------------
2010-07-01  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v4.1.0.

2010-06-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed reading AVC/h.264 tracks from AVI files
	if they're stored in NALUs inside the AVI.

2010-06-26  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Build system: enhancement: Improved the error reporting if
	certain Boost libraries are not found.

2010-06-25  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: mkvmerge will report if it finds data
	errors in a Matroska file (e.g. due to storage failure or bad
	downloads). The position is reported as well as a periodic update
	as long as mkvmerge re-syncs to the next Matroska element.

	* mmg: enhancement: The "compression" drop down box is enabled for
	all track types. That way "no compression" can be forced for those
	tracks mkvmerge uses "header removal" compression for.

2010-06-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: Matroska files read from/written to by the header
	and chapter editors will no longer be kept opened and locked. Fix
	for bug 498.

	* mmg: bug fix: If mmg was called with "--edit-headers
	filename.mkv" then it crashed when the header editor was closed.

2010-06-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: mkvmerge will start a new cluster before
	a key frame of the first video track. Fix for bug 500.

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: The default cluster length has been
	increased to five seconds (up from two seconds).

2010-06-20  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: mkvmerge will no longer report nonsensical
	progress reports (e.g. -17239182%) when reading Matroska files
	with all the flags "--no-audio --no-video --no-subtitles"
	enabled. Fix for bug 505.

	* mmg: bug fix: Fixed a crash in the job runner when the total
	time was very big due to a division by zero.

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: Implemented write caching resulting in
	faster muxes especially on Windows writing to network shares.

2010-06-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for reading PGS subtitles
	from PGS/SUP files.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Specifying an FPS with "--default-duration"
	for AVC/h264 tracks in AVI files did not work. Fix for bug 492.

2010-06-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed an invalid memory access possibly
	causing a crash in the AC3 detection code.

2010-06-14  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: bug fix: Changing mmg's interface language did not change
	the entries in the "command line options" dialog if that dialog
	had been opened prior to the language change.

2010-06-12  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: mkvmerge uses header removal compression
	by default for AC3, DTS, MP3, Dirac and MPEG-4 part 2 tracks.

	* all: Added desktop files for mmg/mkvinfo, a MIME type file for
	.mmg files and icons to the installation procedure on Linux. Most
	files were contributed by Cristian Morales Vega (see AUTHORS).

	* all: Added a translation of the programs into Spanish by Isra
	Lucas (see AUTHORS).

2010-06-11  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed access to uninitialized memory when
	reading DTS tracks from AVI and Matroska files.

2010-06-10  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The Matroska reader will use the MPEG audio
	packetizer for MP2 tracks instead of the passthrough packetizer.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The Matroska reader did not handle compressed
	tracks correctly if the passthrough packetizer was used.

2010-06-08  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* docs: Added a Dutch translation for the man pages by René
	Maassen (see AUTHORS).

2010-06-07  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The handling of Matroska files in which the
	'default track flag' is not present has been fixed.

Have fun.
