Hey,

A new release of MKVToolNix with several bug fixes in mkvmerge and
minor feature enhancements in the GUI. Nothing critical.

Nothing's been changed regarding the packaging since v9.4.2.

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 v9.4.2:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
2016-10-16  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * Released v9.5.0 "Quiet Fire".

        * mkvmerge, mkvextract: VobSub handling bug fix: mkvmerge and
        mkvextract will now update the duration stored in the SPU bitsream
        with the duration from the container level if it differs at least
        1ms. Fixes #1771.

2016-10-15  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: h.264 elementary stream handling bug fix: if mkvmerge
        ever encounters changing SPS or PPS NALUs (ones where their ID has
        been encountered before with different settings) in the h.264 then
        it will prepend all following key frames with all currently active
        SPS and PPS NALUs. This enables playback from arbitrary key frames
        even if they require other SPS or PPS settings than the ones
        stored in the AVCC in CodecPrivate.

        Fixes #1711.

2016-10-12  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI: added support for the
        "field order" video track header element.

        * mkvinfo: added support for the "field order" video track header
        element. Patch by James Almer (see AUTHORS).

        * mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader bug fix: fixed the
        handling of Blu-ray PCM audio with an odd number of channels by
        removing their alignment bytes.

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

        * mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader bug fix: fixed
        mis-detection of certain h.264 files as MPEG transport streams.

2016-10-09  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: WAV reader bug fix: the track properties (channels,
        sample rate) for DTS and AC-3 in WAV will now be derived from the
        decoded bitstream headers instead of the WAV file header as the
        latter is often incorrect.

        * mkvmerge: WAV reader bug fix: fixed detection and merging of DTS
        in WAV that uses the 14-bytes-in-16-bytes packing method.

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

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: added menu entries that
        execute the "close", "save settings", "start muxing" or "add to
        job queue" action for all currently open tabs.

2016-10-07  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: when dragging & dropping
        directories the GUI will process all files within those
        directories recursively instead.

2016-10-06  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's header editor: added options to
        modify the "muxing application" and "writing application" elements
        in the "segment information" container. Implements #1788.

2016-09-30  Moritz Bunkus  <moritz at bunkus.org>

        * mkvmerge: bug fix: The Ogg/OGM reader did not recognize Opus
        files with comment headers anymore. This was broken by the fix to
        not require Ogg/OGM files to have comment headers in v9.4.0.

Have fun :)
