I've released mkvtoolnix v3.3.0. This release contains contains several
important bug fixes and a few new features. Behind the scenes huge parts
of the code have seen adjustments, especially the order and amount of
included header files. I've gone to great lengths to ensure everything
compiles as usual on several platforms and versions but be prepared for
compiler errors if you compile the package yourself.

There are no changes that package maintainers have to look out for.

Here are the usual links...

All binaries that I provide myself have already been uploaded.

	AVCC) is re-created from the bitstream. Fix for bug 470.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: MP4 files that do contain edit lists but
	whose edit lists do not span the entire file are processed

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
