Hey,

I've released mkvtoolnix v5.2.1. It corrects a nasty inconsistency
regarding track IDs between mkvmerge and mkvextract, improves
performance on Linux quite a bit by not caching data twice and fixes a
few smaller issues here and there.

There were no changes that concern package maintainers.

Here are the usual links...

...to the source code:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/sources/mkvtoolnix-5.2.1.tar.bz2

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

http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/win32/mkvtoolnix-unicode-5.2.1.7z

All of the Linux binaries that I provide have already been built and
are available.

Here's the full ChangeLog since release 5.2.0:

------------------------------------------------------------------
2012-01-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* Released v5.2.1.

2011-12-29  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed certain DTS files being mis-detected as
	AC3. Fix for bug 693.

2011-12-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* build system: Added an option "--without-gettext" that allows
	for building without support for translations even if gettext
	itself is installed.

	* build system: Added an option "--without-curl" that allows for
	building without CURL support even if CURL itself is installed.

	* all: bug fix: Fixed compilation if gettext/libintl is not
	available.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The MPEG program stream reader was reporting
	wrong progress percentage if multiple files were used since
	v5.1.0.

2011-12-27  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: Removed the posix_fadvise() code. The
	application is using its own caching code which caused bad
	performance if the OS caching provided via posix_fadvise() is used
	as well.

2011-12-25  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: If an MP4 file contains chapters encoded in a
	different charset than UTF-8 and --chapter-charset is not used
	then the error message shown is a lot clearer why mkvmerge aborts
	muxing. Before the error message was a generic
	"mm_text_io_c::read_next_char(): invalid UTF-8 character. The
	first byte:..."

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: MPEG program streams in which a track
	suddenly ends and others continue or in which a track has huge
	gaps will no longer cause mkvmerge to try to read the whole file
	at once. This could lead to excessive swapping and finally
	mkvmerge crashing if no more memory was available.

2011-12-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: bug fix: The track IDs used for extraction are
	consistent again with the IDs that mkvmerge's identification
	reports. Fix for bug 689.

2011-12-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fix compilation if FLAC is not available. Fix
	for issue #13.
------------------------------------------------------------------

Have fun.

Kind regards,
mo
