Hey,

I've released MKVToolNix v8.2.0. This is another release implementing
a lot of enhancements and new features for MKVToolNix GUI. Nearly all
of them are a direct result of all the feedback received for versions
8.0.0 and 8.1.0. Therefore I urge you to upgrade, especially if you're
still using 8.0.0.

The old GUI (mkvmerge GUI) is still included and scheduled to be
removed after 8.3.0.

Changes for package maintainers: nothing's changed since v8.1.0.

Here are the usual links:

…to the source code: http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/source.html
…to the binaries: http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/downloads.html

All binaries that I provide have been uploaded already.

Here's the full ChangeLog since the previous release:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
2015-07-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Released v8.2.0.

        * mkvmerge, MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: fixed the container type not
        being recognized properly by the GUI. Now the numerical container
        type ID is output in verbose identification mode by mkvmerge.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor enhancement: the template for
        chapter names can now contain a number of places for the chapter
        number, e.g. '<NUM:3>'. The number will be zero-padded if there
        are less places than specified.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new chapter editor feature: implemented a
        function for renumbering chapters. This allows the user to
        automatically assign new chapter names to one level of
        sub-chapters with ascending numbers. Implements #1355.

2015-07-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: the position of the tab headers of
        all tab widgets can be changed in the preferences. Implements
        #1334.

2015-07-12  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: added an option for hiding the tool
        selector.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new job queue feature: added menu options for
        stopping the queue either immediately or after the current job has
        finished. Implements #1303.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new job queue feature: added a context menu
        option for setting jobs to status »pending manual start«.

2015-07-11  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor bug fix: the file is not kept
        open so that you can open it in other applications at the same
        time.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new merge tool feature: added context menu
        options for selecting all tracks of a specific type (e.g. all
        audio tracks). Implements #1197.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: the dialog shown after
        dragging & dropping files from external applications asking if
        those files should be added or appended now has an option to
        always add and never to show that dialog again. For new MKVToolNix
        installations the default is now to show this dialog again until
        the user deactivates it either in the dialog or in the
        preferences.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: added additional ways to move
        selected files, tracks and attachments around: keyboard shortcuts
        (Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down) and optional buttons (those have to be
        enabled in the preferences). Using drag & drop remains
        possible. Implements #1279.

2015-07-05  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: if a GUI language other than English
        was selected then the warning/error messages output by mkvmerge
        were not recognized properly and output in the wrong text views.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: fixed loading saved settings
        in which an appended file contains chapters/tags/attachments.

2015-07-04  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new merge tool feature: dragging files from
        external applications now allows you to create new mux settings
        and add the dropped files to those if the »always add dropped
        files« option is off. Implements #1297.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: added support for displaying the
        queue progress on the task bar button. Implements #1335.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed handling of MPEG transport streams
        where all PATs and PMTs have CRC errors. Fixes #1336.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: new merge tool feature: implemented support for
        re-ordering new attachments via drag & drop. Implements #1276.

2015-07-03  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: fixed the command line option used when
        the »fix bitstream timing info« check box is checked. Fixes #1337.

2015-07-01  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * docs: added a Spanish translation of the man pages by Israel
        Lucas Torrijos (see AUTHORS).

        * MKVToolNix GUI: enhancement: several drop down boxes have had
        their options renamed slightly to be more consistent overall and
        easier to select via the keyboard. Implements #1309.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: fix compilation with the upcoming Qt
        5.5.0. Fixes #1328.

2015-06-30  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: job queue bug fix: when re-starting a job the
        »date finished« field wasn't reset. Fixes #1323.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: the option »set output file
        name relative to first input file« caused the relative path to be
        applied each time a file was added resulting in the wrong
        directory. Fixes #1321.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: when adding a Blu-ray
        playlist and aborting the »select playlist to add« dialog the
        originally opened playlist was added even so.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: the MPEG-1/2 video code was causing an
        illegal memory access under certain conditions. Fixes #1217 and
        #1278.

2015-06-29  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: the »default subtitle character set«
        combo box required a selection without an option for using the
        system's default. An entry »– no selection by default –« has been
        added at the top.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: fixed parsing command line arguments to
        an already-running instance on Windows. Fixes #1322.

2015-06-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: enhancement: position and size of the several
        additional windows are saved and restored. These include: the
        preferences window, the dialog for additional command line
        options, the dialog showing the command line and the dialog for
        selecting the playlist to add. Implements #1317.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: fixed the combo boxes with languages,
        countries and character sets not being re-initialized after
        changes to the list of common languages/countries/character sets
        in the preferences. Fixes #1224.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: enhancement: the relative sizes of all splitters
        are saved and restored. Implements #1306.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor bug fix: fixed the menu entries
        »save to XML file« and »save to Matroska file« not being available
        after loading chapters until the tool or tab was changed. Fixes
        #1312.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: fixed labels and therefore the window
        becoming excessively wide with long file names. Fixes #1314.
