Hey,

I've released mkvtoolnix v5.0.0. It's a release with a lot of small bug
fixes, but it also features support for MPEG transport streams.

Change for package maintainers: Building against external versions of
libEBML and libMatroska is possible again. libEBML 1.2.2 and libMatroska
1.3.0 are required. If they're not found or too old then the internal
versions will be used and linked statically.

Here are the usual links...

...to the home page:

...to the source code:

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

http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/win32/mkvtoolnix-unicode-5.0.0.7z

All of the Linux binaries that I provide are already available.

Here's the full ChangeLog since release 4.9.1:

------------------------------------------------------------
2011-09-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v5.0.0.

	* build system: libEBML 1.2.2 and libMatroska 1.3.0 are required
	for building. If external versions are not found or if they're too
	old then the included versions will be used as a fallback.

2011-09-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The "writing application" element will not be
	localized but always be written in English.

2011-09-20  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: MPEG TS: mkvmerge will extract the track
	languages from a corresponding clpi (clip info) file. That file is
	searched for in the same directory and in ../CLIPINF and must
	have the same base name but with the ".clpi" extension.

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: Added new stereo mode options to match
	the current specs. The new options are "anaglyph_green_magenta"
	(12), "both_eyes_laced_left_first" (13) and
	"both_eyes_laced_right_first" (14).

	* mkvmerge: The --stereo-mode named option "anaglyph" was renamed
	to "anaglyph_cyan_red" to match the specs. The numerical value
	(10) remains unchanged.

2011-09-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: bug fix: Fixed attachment number displayed during
	extraction. Fix for bug 663.

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: MPEG TS: Added support for HDMV PGS
	subtitles.

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: MPEG TS: Added support for DTS HD Master
	Audio tracks.

2011-09-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: MPEG TS: Streams that are mentioned in
	the PMT but do not actually contain data are neither reported
	during identification nor muxed.

2011-09-14  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: MPEG TS: Added support for reading the
	language code.

2011-09-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: enhancement: Added MPEG transport streams to the "add file"
	dialog file selector.

	* mkvmerge: new feature: MPEG TS: Added support for normal DTS
	tracks.

	* mkvmerge: Tons of fixes and additions to the MPEG transport
	stream demuxer.

2011-09-10  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* build system: configure will accept external versions of libEBML
	and libMatroska again. Minimum required versions are libEBML 1.2.1
	and libMatroska 1.1.0.

2011-09-07  DenB  <denb10 at free.fr>

	* All: Updated the French translation with a complete set by DenB
	(see AUTHORS).

2011-09-05  Cosme Domínguez  <cosme.ddiaz at gmail.com>

	* mmg: mmg respects the XDG Base Directory Specification regarding
	its configuration files (environment variable
	$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/mkvtoolnix if set, otherwise
	~/.config/mkvtoolnix).

2011-08-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* all: Added an Lithuanian translation by Mindaugas Baranauskas
	(see AUTHORS).

2011-08-14  Massimo Callegari  <massimocallegari at yahoo.it>

	* mkvmerge: new feature: Implemented a MPEG transport stream
	demuxer.

2011-08-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: When looking for MPEG files with the same
	base name as a source file mkvmerge will be stricter what it
	accepts. The file name must consist of at least one char followed
	by "-" or "_" followed by a number. That will match VTS_01_1.VOB
	but not e.g. "some_series_s03e10.mpg".

2011-07-31  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Opening MPEG files with numbers in their name
	from folders with e.g. Cyrillic names failed on Windows.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Several elements are not written when
	creating WebM compliant files. In the segment headers: SegmentUID,
	SegmentFamily, ChapterTranslate, PreviousSegmentUID,
	NextSegmentUID. In the track headers: MinCache, MaxCache and
	MaxBlockAdditionID.

2011-07-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: Sped up file identification by caching
	read operations.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed identifying QuickTime/MP4 files that
	start with a 'skip' atom.

2011-07-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed a crash when reading AVI files with DTS
	audio tracks that do not contain valid headers in the first couple
	of packets. Fix for bug 646.

Have fun.
