Hey,

I've released MKVToolNix v7.8.0. Tons of bug fixes, among them an
important one that fixes a corruption when dealing with HEVC tracks
without aspect ratio information. New features include support for DTS
Exrepss and a Swedish translation (work in progress).

Changes for package maintainers: Boost's Math library is now required.

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:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
2015-03-27  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Released v7.8.0.

        * build system: Boost's »Math« library is now required.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: HEVC tracks which did not have an aspect
        ratio present in their sequence parameter set were copied
        incorrectly; the resulting sequence parameter set was
        invalid. Fixes #1081.

        * mkvextract: bug fix: When extracting HEVC tracks mkvextract will
        use the same start code lengths that x265 uses (four bytes
        0x00000001 for the first and video/picture/sequence parameter set
        NALs and three bytes 0x000001 for all others).

2015-03-26  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: enhancement: File type identification will output a
        more detailed description of the DTS type for DTS audio tracks
        (DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution, DTS Express or just
        plain DTS). Implements #1109.

        * mkvmerge: new feature: Implemented support for DTS Express.

2015-03-25  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: The number of channels in DTS tracks with
        more than six channels is now recognized correctly by parsing the
        DTS HD extensions, too. Fixes #1139.

2015-03-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * all: new feature: added a Swedish translation of the programs by
        Kristoffer Grundström (see AUTHORS).

2015-03-24  Mats Peterson  <matsp888 at yahoo.com>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed handling of the BITIMAPINFOHEADER extra
        data size handling during merging and extraction for codecs like
        HuffYUV.

2015-03-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: When appending unframed HEVC/h.265 tracks and
        setting the default duration the second and all following source
        parts will use the same default duration as set for the first
        part. Fixes #1147.


2015-03-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: enabled the use of tags in WebM
        files. Tagging elements not supported by the WebM specs are
        removed. Fixes #1143.

2015-03-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed detection of audio tracks in QuickTime
        files whose FourCC code is unknown to mkvmerge.

2015-03-11  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed detection of video tracks in QuickTime
        files whose FourCC code is unknown to mkvmerge.

2015-03-10  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvextract: bug fix: Fixed VobSub file naming when mkvextract is
        built against Boost::Filesystem older than 1.50.0. Fixes #1140.

2015-03-09  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed detection of Cinepak video tracks in
        QuickTime files.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed detection of PCM audio tracks in
        QuickTime files using the »raw « FourCC.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed detection of tracks in Flash Video
        files for which the headers do not signal a track.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed a segfault in the Flash Video file
        format reader.

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

        * mmg: The change making the window wider by default has been
        reverted.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed file type detection for MP3 files with
        big ID3 tags at the start of the file (e.g. if they contain cover
        images).

        * mkvinfo (Qt interface): enhancement: implemented support for
        opening files via drag & drop.

        * mkvmerge: enhancement: added an option (--engage
        no_delay_for_garbage_in_avi) for disabling deriving a delay from
        garbage in audio tracks in AVI files. Requested in #1137.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: The formula used for calculating the audio
        delay for garbage data at the start of tracks in AVI files has
        been fixed. Fixes #1137.
