Hey,

time for MKVToolNix v9.2.0. It's a somewhat unremarkable release with
Several smaller issues having been addressed and no huge changes or
enhancements.

One important change for Windows and Mac OS users of mkvinfo is that
the change to start the GUI by default has been reverted. Instead a
separate executable (mkvinfo-gui) is included for those platforms
which starts the GUI by default. The newly introduced option
"--no-gui" will remain valid but won't have any effect when used with
the "mkvinfo" executable.

There have been no changes for package maintainers since the previous
release.

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 v9.1.0:

----------------------------------------------------------------------

        * Released v9.2.0 "Photograph".

2016-05-20  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: the action "select all
        attached files" in the popup menu actions for the attached files
        view has been split up into "enable all attached files" and
        "disable all attached files". Implements #1698.

2016-05-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: bug fix on Windows: removing the drive letter
        does not cause the colon to be removed automatically
        anymore. Fixes #1692.

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: it's no longer possible
        to select "1" as the maximum number of files to split into as
        mkvmerge doesn't accept that value. Fixes #1695.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: the "interval" chapter generation mode was
        always creating one chapter too many.

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: if a certain number of chapters had been
        generated with --generate-chapters then mkvmerge wasn't replacing
        the void placerholder with the actual chapters. Fixes #1693.

2016-05-14  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool bug fix: the track column "default
        track in output" wasn't taking into account if the track had its
        "default track" flag set to "no" in the source file. This would
        result in the column showing "yes" in certain situations even
        though mkvmerge would assign "no".

2016-05-06  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed detection of (E-)AC-3 in MPEG TS files
        with unusual stream types (e.g. 0x87) but with (E-)AC-3 PMT
        descriptors. Fixes #1684.

2016-05-05  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge, mkvextract: bug fix: fixed handling of Big Endian PCM
        with a bit depth other than 16, 32 or 64 bits/sample. Other
        formats were using the Little Endian codec ID, but their content
        was actually not byte-swapped to match it. Now those other bit
        depths are byte-swapped to Little Endian, too. Fixes #1683.

        * mkvinfo: the change to start the GUI by default on Windows and
        Mac OS has been reverted. Instead a separate executable
        (mkvinfo-gui) will be included for those platforms which starts
        the GUI by default. The newly introduced option "--no-gui" will
        remain valid but won't have any effect when used with mkvinfo.

2016-05-04  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvinfo GUI: enhancement: the window title now includes the file
        name. Implements #1679.

        * mkvmerge: enhancement: the "bit depth" track header field will
        be set for DTS tracks from the first DTS core header. Implements
        #1680.

2016-05-02  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: the time zone portion of the "date_local"
        member of the JSON and verbose identification formats contained
        the time zone's name instead of its offset on Windows due to the
        Visual C++ runtime's std::strftime not being C++11
        compliant.

        Additionally this resulted in errors about invalid UTF-8 strings
        for locales where the time zone's name contained non-ASCII
        characters.
