Hey,

Development speed has slowed down a little in the last couple of
days. Nevertheless today's release v8.9.0 contains a lot of bug fixes
and enhancements.

There's one small change for package maintainers: a Polish translation
of the man pages has been added.

Here are the usual links:

…to the source code: http://mkvtoolnix.download/source.html
…to the binaries: http://mkvtoolnix.download/downloads.html

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
hours.

Here's the full ChangeLog since v8.8.0:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
2016-02-21  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Released v8.9.0.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: the default font size adjustment has been
        deactivated for the time being as it causes problems on high DPI
        displays. See #1602.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix: ampersands (&) in file names were shown
        as keyboard shortcuts in tab titles in various tools (merge tool,
        chapter and header editors, job output tool). Fixes #1603.

2016-02-20  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: header editor enhancement: when the user drags &
        drops files on an open header editor tab the GUI will ask the user
        what to do with them: either open the files as new header editor
        tabs or add the files as new attachments to the current tab. The
        action can also be set as the default. Implements #1585.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter & header editor enhancement: Matroska
        files are initially opened in read-only mode and only later
        re-opened in read/write mode in order to enable reading from
        write-protected files. Part of the implementation of #1594.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter & header enhancement: the error messages
        shown when a Matroska file could not be parsed have been improved
        to include the most likely reasons. Part of the implementation of
        #1594.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor enhancement: added a menu entry
        for removing chapters from an existing Matroska file. Inspired by
        #1593.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor enhancement: it is now possible
        to save chapters to Matroska files after having removed all
        entries (editions and chapter atoms). This effectively removes the
        chapters from the file. Implements #1593.

2016-02-18  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: job queue enhancement: added keyboard shortcuts
        for removing all completed jobs and for removing successfully
        completed jobs. Implements #1599.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: added icons to the
        context menu actions in the "attachments" sub-tab. Implements
        #1596.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: made the context menu
        entries in the "attachments" sub-tab clearer. Implements #1597.

2016-02-10  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed the handling of AVIs with a negative
        video height (which signals that the rows are arranged
        top-to-bottom).

2016-01-31  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: job queue bug fix: fixed an invalid memory
        access in the "edit in corresponding tool and remove from queue"
        functionality.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: re-write, merge tool bug fix: the file
        identification is now based on mkvmerge's JSON output instead of
        its verbose output. This also fixes the merge tool not showing
        names of attachments inside Matroska files properly if those names
        contain spaces (#1583).

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: the "mux this" combo box
        was disabled if a single attachment was selected.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: removed spurious output generated during file
        identification in the HEVC detection code (e.g. "Error No Error").

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed the output of the "playlist_file" and
        "other_file" properties of the "container" entity in the JSON
        identification format from a single string to an array of
        strings. The format version has been bumped to 3 due to this
        change.

2016-01-30  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * docs: added a Polish translation of the man pages by Daniel Kluz
        (see AUTHORS).

        * MKVToolNix GUI: "run program after XYZ" enhancement:
        configurations can now be deactivated without having to change
        them. Implements #1581.

2016-01-24  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed parsing of AAC in MP4 with a program
        config element with an empty comment field at the end of the GA
        specific config. Fixes #1578.

2016-01-19  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: enhancement: when reading Matroska files created by
        HandBrake that contain chapters the existing edition UIDs and
        chapter UIDs are removed and random ones created. This is
        necessary as HandBrake assigns sequential numbers starting at 1
        for each file. Therefore there are two chapter entries with the
        UID 1, two with the UID 2 etc. and those should, strictly
        speaking, be treated as if they were a single chapter whereas the
        user expects those entries to stay separate entries. Implements an
        improvement for issues such as #1561.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: the GUI no longer requires
        at least one source file to be present before muxing can start in
        order to allow creation of track-less files. Fixes #1576.

2016-01-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: enhancement: the "escape for Windows' cmd.exe"
        mechanism will only escape arguments that actually need escaping
        in order to produce easier to read command lines.

2016-01-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: QuickTime/MP4 reader: fix a division by zero in the
        index generation for certain old audio codecs that have certain
        header fields (bytes_per_frame, samples_per_packet) set to 0.

2016-01-13  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvinfo: bug fix: global elements (EBML void and CRC-32
        elements) are now handled correctly if they're located inside the
        segment info or the chapter translate parents.
