time for the next release of MKVToolNix. This time it's really just
polishing of existing functionality.

Dear package maintainers: I have to say again that MKVToolNix v9.3.1
and later requires the recently released libEBML v1.3.4 and
libMatroska v1.4.5. Even though both libraries are API and ABI
compatible with their prior releases this only means that a program
compiled against an older version of the library will still work when
run against a newer version of the library.

However, MKVToolNix v9.3.1 and newer use features newly introduced in
libMatroska v1.4.4. This means that you cannot compile MKVToolNix
v1.4.5 and try to run it against v1.4.4 — that'll fail with symbol
lookup errors from ld.

I've received multiple reports of MKVToolNix v9.3.x packages that
could be installed with libMatroska v1.4.4. This won't work. Please
make the dependency on v1.4.5+ explicit. Thanks.

The Windows and Mac OS binaries are available. Most of the Linux
binaries are still being built and will be available in a couple of

Here's the full ChangeLog since v9.3.1

2016-08-22  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Released v9.4.0 "Knurl".

2016-08-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvpropedit: bug fix: mkvpropedit will no longer say that it's
        writing the changes if only attachment changes are specified and
        none of the specified attachments can be found.

2016-08-11  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor bug fix: overly long chapter
        names don't cause the GUI's window to become overly wide
        anymore. Fixes #1760.

2016-08-10  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: DTS bug fix: if present mkvmerge will use an XLL
        extension's sample rate information as the sample rate to put into
        the track headers. Fixes #1762.

2016-08-06  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: new feature: added support for reading Apple ProRes
        video from MOV/MP4 files. Patch by Chao Chen (see AUTHORS).

2016-08-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: when appending files mkvmerge wasn't starting
        clusters on video key frame anymore for the first and all
        following appended files. Fixes #1757.

2016-07-31  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: when adding attachments
        the GUI will check if there are attachments or attached files with
        the same name as the file to add. If so the GUI will tell the user
        and ask for confirmation.

2016-07-30  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: enhancement: mkvmerge now accepts file names in square
        brackets for appending files, e.g. "mvkmerge -o out.mkv [ in1.avi
        in2.avi in3.avi ]" instead of "mkvmerge -o out.mkv in1.avi +
        in2.avi + in3.avi".

2016-07-29  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: VP8 in Ogg: fixed dropping the first frame
        and the timestamp calculation. Fixes #1754.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: mkvmerge does no longer emit a warning if no
        comment header packet is found when reading tracks from Ogg/OGM
        files. See #1754.

2016-07-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: the "select a play list
        to add" dialog does now contain a column with the number of
        chapters for each play list found.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: job queue enhancement: dragging & dropping a
        valid .mtxcfg file (either a full job file or one containing only
        merge settings without the job properties) onto the job queue
        window will import the dropped .mtxcfg job into the job
        queue. Rest of the implementation of #1714.

2016-07-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: dragging & dropping a
        job queue .mtxcfg file onto the merge tool or using one as a
        command line parameter to the mkvtoolnix-gui executable will
        import the .mtxcfg job into the job queue. Part of the
        implementation of #1714.

2016-07-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: the automatic adjustments to
        the output file name based on the track types selected for muxing
        and the mechanism for keeping output file names unique had been
        broken since release v9.3.0. Fixes #1743.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: toggling the WebM mode
        check box will update the output file name's extension

Have fun :)
