I've just released v16.0.0 of MKVToolNix. This release is mostly a bug fix

Changes for package maintainers: libMatroska v1.4.7 is now required.

Here are the usual links:

All binaries have been built and uploaded.

Here are the NEWS since the previous release:

# Version 16.0.0 "Protest" 2017-09-30

## New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: added support for Vorbis. Implements #2093.

## Bug fixes

* configure: the checks for libEBML and libMatroska have been fixed to require
  libEBML 1.3.5 and libMatroska 1.4.7 as intended.

* mkvmerge: AAC reader: mkvmerge will now emit an error message for AAC files
  whose header fields imply a sampling frequency or number of channels
  of 0. See #2107.
* mkvmerge: AVC/h.264 ES parser: fixed the calculation of reference
  information for P and B frames. This also fixes some P frames being marked
  as B frames and vice versa.
* mkvmerge: AVC/h.264 ES parser: only non-key frames that have the NALU header
  field `nal_ref_idc` set to 0 will be marked as "discardable" in
  `SimpleBlock` elements. Other half of the fix for #2047.
* mkvmerge: HEVC/h.265: the generation of the HEVCC structure stored in
  `CodecPrivate` was wrong in two places: 1. the position of the number of
  sub-layers was swapped with reserved bits and 2. the VPS/SPS/PPS/SEI lists
  did not start with a reserved 1 bit.
* mkvmerge: output: the `doc type version` will be set at least to 2 if
  certain elements are written (`CodecState`, `CueCodecState`,
* mkvmerge: output: the track header attributes `MinCache` and `MaxCache` will not be
  written anymore. Fixes #2079.
* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: the "key" and "discardable" flags of SimpleBlock
  elements will be kept as they are. Partial fix for #2047.
* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: if present in the file, the "white colour
  coordinate x" track header attribute was written to both "white colour
  coordinate x" and "white colour coordinate y" in the output file.
* mkvmerge: Opus output: mkvmerge will now put all frames with discard padding
  into their own block group. Fixes #2100.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: removed the check for external modification
  when saving the file. Fixes #2097.
* MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: fixed calculation of total progress when
  automatic removal of completed is enabled. Fixes #2105.

## Build system changes

* libEBML v1.3.5 and libMatroska v1.4.8 are now required. In fact v15.0.0
  already requires libEBML v1.3.5 and libMatroska v1.4.7 but did not include
  proper version checks for them (nor was there a NEWS.md entry for the new
  libMatroska requirement). New is the requirement for libMatroska v1.4.8 due
  to it fixing writing block groups for tracks with the track number 128 (see

Have fun :)
