*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. *

> 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).
> Here are the usual links...
> ...to the home page:
> ...to the source code:
> ...to the Windows installer and 7zip archive:
> All of the Linux binaries that I provide have already been built and
> are available.
> Here's the ChangeLog since v5.9.0:
> 2013-01-20 Moritz Bunkus <moritz at bunkus.org>
> * 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.
> Have fun.
