*Many thanks*. This version appears like a great work, 'cause there are
more and more feature, so *thanks again*.

*Sorry to write this*: *I think checksums pages are not updated, 'cause i
haven't found the checksums of Windows 7z archive. *

Besta regards.

> Hey,
>
> I've released MKVToolNix 6.0.0. It packs quite a punch: several new
> features, a couple of bugfixes. The new features include a reader for
> the FlashVideo file format (.flv -- yes, for those YouTube videos),
> splitting by frame/field numbers, splitting by chapter numbers,
> splitting into parts by frame/field numbers, reading VobSubs from MP4
> files and the ability to save additional command line options as
> default options in mmg.
>
> Then there's a major change regarding one of the most controversial
> features in MKVToolNix: header removal compression has been turned off
> by default in both mkvmerge and mmg.
>
> The list of fixed bugs is even longer than the one for new features,
> so please look at the ChangeLog below for the details.
>
> There are three things to note for package maintainers: the source
> code archive is now compressed with xz instead of bzip2 (file name
> ends in ...tar.xz); Boost's "variant" library is now required;
> MKVToolNix still requires its bundled versions of libEBML and
> libMatroska because new versions of them haven't been released yet
> (just like in 5.9.0).

>         * Released v6.0.0.
>
> 2013-01-14  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: new feature: Implemented splitting by parts based on
>         frame/field numbers ("--split parts-frames:" in
>         mkvmerge). Implements #819.
>
> 2013-01-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: bug fix: Re-writing the track headers after they'd
>         grown a lot (to more than the EBML void size located after them
>         allowed for) led to an integer underflow. Then mkvmerge tried to
>         write a void element the size of that integer (e.g. nearly 4 GB on
>         32bit platforms). Fixes #822 and #828.
>
> 2013-01-12  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: bug fix in the MP4 reader: Fixed language code
>         conversion from what is used in MP4 to the ISO 639-2 codes used in
>         Matroska (e.g. convert from "deu" to "ger").
>
>         * Source distribution: source code archives (tarballs) will be
>         compressed with xz instead of bzip2 from now on. The file name's
>         extension will therefore change from ".tar.bz2" to ".tar.xz". The
>         download URL changes accordingly.
>
> 2013-01-11  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: new feature: Implemented reading VobSubs from MP4
>         files if they're stored in the Nero Digital way (track sub-type
>         'mp4s', ESDS object type identifier 0xe0). Implements #821 and the
>         second half of #815.
>
> 2013-01-08  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mmg: new feature: Command line options can be saved as default
>         for new jobs by clicking a check box in the "add command line
>         options" dialog.
>
> 2013-01-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mmg: bug fix: Fixed a crash in the chapter editor if the root
>         was selected and the user used the "Set values" button.
>
> 2013-01-01  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge, mmg: removal: The 'header removal compression' method
>         is not turned on by default anymore. This affects the following
>         track types: AC3, AVC/h.264, Dirac, DTS, MP3. The setting in mmg
>         that turned it off by default has been removed.
>
> 2012-12-31  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: new feature: Added experimental support for the Opus
>         audio codec. Parts of an implementation of #779.
>
> 2012-12-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: bug fix: "text"-type tracks in MP4 files are only
>         treated as chapters if their track ID is listed on a "chap" atom
>         inside a "tref" track reference atom. Fixes #815.
>
> 2012-12-27  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge, mmg: new feature: Implemented splitting by chapter
>         numbers. Implements #504 and #814.
>
> 2012-12-25  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: enhancement: Removed several warnings from the MPEG-2
>         video parser code about open GOPs, missing references. Those were
>         too confusing for most users, even after being given additional
>         information via email and FAQs.
>
>         * mkvextract: new feature: Implemented extraction of ALAC into
>         Core Audio Format files (CAF). Implements #786.
>
> 2012-12-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge, mmg: new feature: Implemented splitting by frame/field
>         numbers. Implements #771.
>
>         * mmg: bug fix: Fixed consistency checks when appending files and
>         at least one track is disabled.
>
>         * mkvmerge: new feature: Implemented a reader for the
>         Flash Video format (.flv). Implements #735.
>
> 2012-12-22  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * Build system: Boost's "variant" library is now required.
>
> 2012-12-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: bug fix: ISO 639-2 language handling: The deprecated
>         language codes "scr", "scc" and "mol" are replaced by their
>         respective successors "hrv", "srp" and "rum". Fixes #803.
>
>         * mkvmerge: bug fix: Matroska reader: Fixed finding the "segment
>         info" element if it is located behind the clusters.
>
> 2012-12-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: bug fix: MP3 parser code: Fixed skipping ID3 tags so
>         that the header directly behind the ID3 tag is recognized
>         properly. Fixes #747.
>
>         * mkvmerge: bug fix: MP4 reader: Fixed handling of edit lists if
>         the edit list is used to adjust the track's timecodes by a fixed
>         amount (either positive or negative). Fixes #780.
>
> 2012-12-10  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvpropedit: bug fix: Giving a non-existent file name in tags
>         mode will result in a proper error message. Fixes #806.
