Hey,

I've released v5.6.0.  It fixes a couple of important issues with the
new "--split parts:" functionality. Other bugs were fixed as well. A
Polish translation of the programs has been added as well as a Spanish
translation of mmg's guide.

Here are the usual links...

	* Released v5.6.0.

	* documentation: Added Spanish translation of mmg's guide by
	Israel Lucas Torrijos (see AUTHORS).

2012-05-20  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: SRT subtitle entries with colons as the
	decimal separator are accepted. Fix for issue 754.

2012-05-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: XML tag files with <Simple> tags that only
	contained a name and nested <Simple> were wrongfully rejected as
	invalid. Fixes issue 752.

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: mkvmerge was optimizied to keep cluster
	timecodes strictly increasing in most situations.

2012-04-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* all: Added a translation to Polish by Daniel (see AUTHORS).

2012-04-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvextract: bug fix: Extraction of AVC/h.264 was completely
	broken after 2012-04-09 resulting in files with a length of 0
	bytes.

2012-04-09  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg: new feature: When adding a Matroska file that has either
	the "previous segment UID" or the "next segment UID" set then mmg
	will copy those two and the source file's segment UID into the
	corresponding controls on the "globla" tab if they haven't been
	set before. Implements ticket 733.

	* mkvmerge: new feature: The verbose identification mode for
	Matroska files will now includes the "segment UID", the "next
	segment UID" and "previous segment UID" elements.

	* mkvmerge: enhancement: In "--split parts:" mode mkvmerge will
	use the output file name as it is instead of adding a running
	number to it if all the ranges to be kept are to be written into a
	single output file. Implements ticket 743.

	* mkvextract: bug fix: mkvextract will no longer abort extracing
	h.264 tracks if it encounters a NAL smaller than its size
	field. Instead it will warn about it and drop the NAL.

2012-04-08  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: Writing more than two parts into the same
	file with "--split parts:" resulted in the timecodes of the third
	and all following parts to be wrong. Fixes ticket 740.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The "--split parts:" functionality was
	not taking dropped ranges into account when calculating the
	segment duration for files that more than one range was written
	to. Fixes ticket 738.

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The "--split parts:" functionality was
	producing a small gap between the first part's last packet's
	timecode and the second part's first packet's timecode if two
	parts are written to the same file. Fixes ticket 742.

2012-04-07  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mkvmerge: bug fix: The "--split parts:" functionality was
	writing a superfluous and empty first part if the first range
	starts at 00:00:00. Fixes ticket 737.

2012-04-07  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

	* mmg, build system: Fixed building with wxWidgets 2.9.3.
