I've released mkvtoolnix v4.4.0. It contains the usual mix of bug fixes
and a few enhancements but no major new features.

Nothing has changed for people building from source in general and
package maintainers in particular.

Here are the usual links...

...to the source code:

...to the Windows installer and 7zip archive:

All binaries that I provide myself have already been uploaded.

Here's the full ChangeLog since release 4.3.0:

2010-10-31  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v4.4.0.

	* build system: bug fix: Installation no longer fails if xsltproc
	is available but the DocBook stylesheets aren't. Fix for bug 575.

	* mkvmerge: new feature: If the name of an input file starts with
	'=' then mkvmerge will not try to open other files with the same
	name (e.g. 'VTS_01_1.VOB', 'VTS_01_2.VOB', 'VTS_01_3.VOB') from
	the same directory. A single '=' as an argument disables this as
	well for the next input file. Implements bug 570.

	* mmg: new feature: Added an option to disable extra compression
	when adding tracks by default.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Made file type detection stricter for MP3,
	AC3 and AAC files. This prevents mis-detection of other file types
	as one of these for certain files. Fix for bug 574.

2010-10-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed the usage of iterators with the STL
	"deque" template class. This caused mkvmerge to abort on systems
	which did not use the GNU implementation of the standard template
	library, e.g. OpenSolaris with the SunStudio compiler. Fix for bug

2010-09-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: The warning about subtitle entries that
	are skipped because their start time is greater than their end
	time now includes the subtitle number.

2010-09-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Build system: bug fix: 'drake install' did not work if the login
	shell was not POSIX compatible (e.g. fish). Fix for bug 559.

2010-09-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: When appending two Matroska files which
	both contain chapters the chapter entries of all editions will be
	merged even if the edition's UIDs were different to begin
	with. This is done based on the order of the edition. If both
	files contain three editions each then the chapters from the first
	edition in the second file will be put into the first edition from
	the first file; the chapters from the second edition into the
	second edition and so on.

	* all: Added a translation of the programs into French by
	Trinine (see AUTHORS).

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The MPEG ES reader was accessing
	uninitialized data. This could lead to crashes or source files not
	being read correctly.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Using "--no-video" on AVI files caused the
	video track to be mistaken for an audio track and included
	anyway. Fix for bug 558.

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
