> Hey,
>
> I've released MKVToolNix v8.4.0. It contains numerous bug fixes in the

> The most noticeable change is that the old GUI (mmg) has finally been

> Changes for package maintainers: the most important change is that the
> old GUI (mmg) has been removed. Therefore wxWidgets isn't used

> built autoamtically, as will be the MKVToolnix GUI.

>         * Released v8.4.0.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor bug fix: whenever the additional
>         modification of »expanding start/end timecodes to include the
>         minimum/maximum timecodes of their children« was run on an edition
>         entry then ChapterTimeStart and sometimes ChapterTimeEnd nodes
>         were inserted as direct children of the EditionEntry node when
>         saving. This resulted in invalid chapters.

>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: new merge tool feature: when dragging & dropping
>         files onto merge settings already containing a file the user can
>         set more options to be always done instead of asking (before: only
>         adding files to the current merge settings could be thus marked;
>         now: adding to current, adding to new settings and adding each
>         file to new settings can be set to perform without
>         asking). Implements #1388.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: when dragging & dropping
>         files onto merge settings already containing a file the dialog
>         asking the user what to do has received a new option for creating
>         one new merge tab for each of the dropped files. Implements #1380.
>
> 2015-09-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: bug fix: the pixel dimensions reported for VC-1 in
>         MPEG transport streams in verbose identification mode was 0x0.
>
>         * mkvmerge: bug fix: the number of channels and the sample rate
>         reported for DTS in MPEG transport streams and MPEG program
>         streams in verbose identification mode was 0.
>
>         * mkvmerge: container and track properties in verbose
>         identification mode are now output sorted.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: new merge tool feature: the »tracks« tree view
>         contains a new column titled »properties« which contains basic
>         track properties: the pixel dimensions for a video track and
>         sampling frequency, number of channels and bits per sample for an
>         audio track. Implements #1295.
>
> 2015-09-14  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: enhancement: the verbose identification result for all
>         audio tracks has been extended to include the number of channels,
>         the sample rate and the bits per sample where applicable. Part of
>         the implementation of #1295.
>
> 2015-09-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * all: bug fix: parsing of strings containing negative values or
>         timecodes was broken on 32bit architectures. Fixes #1425.
>
> 2015-09-06  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: the verbose identification result for the MPEG program
>         stream, MPEG transport stream and WAV readers has been changed for
>         audio tracks in order to match the Matroska reader's result. The
>         old keys »channels«, »sample_rate« and »bits_per_sample« have been
>         replaced by »audio_channels«, »audio_sampling_frequency« and
>         »audio_bits_per_sample«.
>
>         * mkvmerge: enhancement: the pixel width/height will be reported
>         in verbose identification mode for all video tracks.
>
> 2015-09-05  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: new merge tool feature: added a column in the
>         track list showing the effective state of the »default track«
>         flag. It shows the state of the flag as it will be in the output
>         file. Implements #1353.
>
> 2015-09-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * mkvmerge: enhancement: when mkvmerge encounters garbage data in
>         the middle of AC3 or MP3 tracks it will now output the timecode
>         where the garbage occurred in order to make checking for
>         audio/video sync issues easier. Implements #1420.
>
> 2015-09-01  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor enhancement: added a column in
>         the tree with the edition's/chapter's flags.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: the state of all columns in all
>         list/tree views can be reset (both the shown/hidden state as well
>         as their order) from the column's context menu. See #1268.
>
> 2015-08-30  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: the column headers of all list/tree
>         views can be re-ordered via drag & drop and the GUI will remember
>         their position upon restart. Additionally the columns can be
>         hidden/shown via a context menu by right-clicking on the column
>         headers. Implements #1268.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: new chapter editor feature: added an option
>         for skipping chapters marked as "hidden" in the re-numbering
>         dialog. Implements #1414.
>
> 2015-08-29  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * all: new feature: added a new translation to Serbian (Cyrillic)
>         by Jay Alexander Fleming (see AUTHORS).
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: enhancement: the header editor will convert ISO
>         639-2 terminology codes used in language elements to their
>         corresponding bibliographic variants. Implements #1418.
>
> 2015-08-28  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: if the output file name
>         policy »last output directory« was used then manual changes to the
>         output file name weren't recognized as changes to the last output
>         directory. Fixes #1411.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: the »default subtitle
>         charset« is not applied to text subtitles from Matroska files as
>         those are always encoded in UTF-8. Fixes #1416.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: enhancement: the titles and button texts of
>         dialogs asking questions have been improved to be easier
>         understandable. For example, instead of using »yes/no« as the
>         answers to the question »Do you want to close the unmodified
>         file?« the choices are now »Close file/Cancel«. Implements #1417.
>
> 2015-08-27  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor bug fix: the »shift timecodes«
>         action in the mass modification dialog wasn't working at all, and
>         selecting multiple actions in the dialog would result in wrong
>         actions being executed.
>
> 2015-08-23  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor enhancement: when loading simple/
>         OGM style chapter files that contain non-ASCII characters and
>         which do not start with a byte order mark (BOM) the GUI will let
>         the user chose the character set to use. A preview is shown for
>         the selected character set and updated when the user changes the
>         character set.
>
> 2015-08-20  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: added »remove all« and
>         »select all« entries to the attachments context menu. Implements
>         #1386.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: job output enhancement: the output, warnings and
>         error text views are now separated by two splitters enabling the
>         user to change their respective sizes. These changes are
>         remembered over restarts. Implements #1394.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor enhancement: pressing
>         shift+return will cause the next appropriate chapter control to be
>         selected depending on where the focus currently is: from a chapter
>         input (start/end time, flags, UIDs) to the next chapter entry's
>         start time, from a chapter name to the next chapter name and from
>         the last chapter name to the next chapter entry's first chapter
>         name. Implements #1398 and complements #1358.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor enhancement: pressing return on
>         the very last chapter entry will wrap and focus the first one in
>         the tree again. Enhances #1358.
>
> 2015-08-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: fixed the total job queue progress with
>         respect to removing completed jobs (either automatically or
>         manually). Fixes #1405.
>
> 2015-08-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: mkvmerge is now run in with the same
>         interface language set for the GUI.
>
>         * 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 again. It now uses the values dwStart, dwScale and
>         dwSampleSize from the AVI stream header structure instead of
>         values derived from the audio packet headers. Fixes #1382 and
>         still works correctly for #1137.
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: enhancement: scrolling over input elements like
>         combo boxes, check boxes and radio buttons located within a scroll
>         area will now scroll the scroll area instead of the element the
>         cursor is over (e.g. a combo box). Implements #1400.
>
> 2015-08-17  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * all: the environment variable <TOOLNAME>_OPTIONS is now
>         parsed for options for TOOL (e.g. MKVMERGE_OPTIONS for
>         mkvmerge). MKVTOOLNIX_OPTIONS is still used for all
>         programs. Fixes #1403.
>
> 2015-08-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>
>
>         * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: fixed the escaping of the command line
>         for cmd.exe regarding the command name itself (the very first
>         argument). Fixes #1401.

>         * build system: removal: the switch »--without-mkvtoolnix-gui« has
>         been removed. There are only two GUIs left in the package: the
>         Qt-enabled mkvinfo and MKVToolNix GUI. Both are enabled by default
>         and can be disabled with the option »--disable-qt«. In that case
>         only the text-mode version of mkvinfo is built, and the MKVToolNix
>         GUI is not built at all.

>         * Removal: all support for wxWidgets has been removed. This means
>         that the mkvmerge GUI (mmg) has been removed and that mkvinfo now
>         only supports a text-mode and a Qt-based interface.

>         * build system: bug fix: fixed Qt platform plugin detection on
>         MacOS.
