MKVtoolnix is a set of tools to create, alter and inspect Matroska files.

With these tools one can get information about (mkvinfo) Matroska files,
extract tracks/data from (mkvextract) Matroska files and create (mkvmerge)
Matroska files from other media files.

mkvtoolnix: updated to 28.0.0

Version 28.0.0 "Voice In My Head":

New features and enhancements
* mkvmerge: AV1 parser: updated the code for the finalized AV1 bitstream
* mkvmerge: AV1 packetizer: updated the code for the finalized AV1-in-Matroska
  & WebM mapping specification.
* mkvmerge: AV1 support: the `--engage enable_av1` option has been removed
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: added support for AV1.
* mkvmerge: DTS: implemented dialog normalization gain removal for extension
* mkvmerge, mkvextract: simple text subtitles: added a workaround for simple
  text subtitle tracks that don't contain a duration.
* mkvextract: added support for extracting AV1 to IVF.
* mkvextract: IVF extractor (AV1, VP8, VP9): precise values will be used for
  the frame rate numerator & denominator header fields for certain well-known
  values of the track's default duration.
* mkvmerge: VP9: mkvmerge will now create codec private data according to the
  VP9 codec mapping described in the WebM specifications.
* MKVToolNix GUI: automatic scaling for high DPI displays is activated if the
  GUI is compiled with Qt ≥ 5.6.0.
* MKVToolNix GUI: added a menu item ("Help" → "System \ 
information") for
  displaying information about the system MKVToolNix is running on in order to
  make debugging easier.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer, header editor: the user can enter a list of
  predefined track names in the preferences. She can later select from them in
  "track name" combo box.

Bug fixes
* mkvmerge: JSON identification: fixed a bug when removing invalid UTF-8 data
  from strings before they're output as JSON.
* mkvmerge: MP4/QuickTime reader: fixed handling of PCM audio with FourCC
* mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader, teletext subtitles: the decision
  whether or not to keep frames around in order to potentially merge them with
  the following frame is made sooner. That avoids problems if there are large
  gaps between teletext subtitle frames which could lead to frames being
  interleaved too late.
* mkvextract: IVF extractor (AV1, VP8, VP8): the frame rate header fields
  weren't clamped to 16 bits properly causing wrong frame rates to be written
  in certain situations.
* mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's header editor: fixed file corruption when a
  one-byte space must be covered with a new EBML void element but all
  surrounding elements have a "size length" field that's eight bytes long

mkvtoolnix: updated to 27.0.0

Version 27.0.0 "Metropolis":

New features and enhancements
* mkvmerge: chapters: the timestamps of chapters read from containers or from
  chapter files can be adjusted (multiplication and addition) with the new
  `--chapter-sync` option or using the special track ID `-2` for the existing
  `--sync` option.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: adjusted & added controls for mkvmerge's new
  feature of being able to adjust chapter timestamps.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the GUI can now ask for confirmation when the
  user is about to create a file that won't contain audio tracks. It does this
  by default if at least one source file contains an audio track.

Bug fixes
* mkvmerge: AC-3: dialog normalization gain removal was corrupting E-AC-3
  frames irreversibly by writing checksums in places where they didn't
  belong. Additionally only the first E-AC-3 frame in a Matroska was processed
  but not additional dependent frames in the same block.
* MKVToolNix GUI: fixed a leak of Windows font resources leading to a general
  slowdown and subsequent crash.

mkvtoolnix: updated to 26.0.0

Version 26.0.0 "In The Game":

New features and enhancements
* mkvmerge: chapter generation: if the name template given by
  --generate-chapters-name-template is empty, no names (ChapterDisplay
  master elements with ChapterString/ChapterLanguage children) will be
  generated for the chapter atoms.
* mkvmerge: chapters: chapter names generated from MPLS files will now use the
  name template if one is set via --generate-chapters-name-template.
* mkvmerge: mkvmerge will no longer abort with an error message if no audio,
  video and subtitle tracks should be multiplexed. This allows copying of
  chapters from non-chapter source files (e.g. Matroska or MP4 files).
* MKVToolNix GUI: the font size in the tool selector on the left will scale
  with the font size the user selects in the preferences.
* MKVToolNix GUI: the GUI will no longer automatically resize the columns in
  tree and list views to match the content size. Instead it remembers and
  restores the widths set by the user.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the chapter name template will now be set
  automatically to the name template in the preferences' "chapter editor"
  section. Additionally the option --generate-chapters-name-template … will
  be passed to mkvmerge in situations when mkvmerge will generate chapters
  (either because automatic generation is enabled or if chapters are generated
  for MPLS playlists).
* MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: if the chapter name template is empty,
  chapters will be generated without names.
* MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: added an option to remove all chapter names
  to the "additional modifications" dialog.

Bug fixes
* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: fixed wrong timestamps when appending Matroska
  files where the second Matroska file's first timestamp is bigger
  than 0.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed division by zero errors during file
  identification if the timescale is 0 in the MVHD atom.
* mkvmerge: Windows Television DVR files are now recognized as an unsupported
  file type. This prevents mis-detection as MPEG-2 with an accompanying flood
  of error messages.
* MKVToolNix GUI: info tool: under certain circumstances "cues" were \ 
shown at
  the wrong level (inside the previous master element instead of on level 1).
* MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: fixed invalid memory handling and consequent
  crashes when using the "edit in corresponding tool & remove from job \ 
  option if one of the files in that job contained attached files.

Build system changes
* An AppStream metadata file will be installed in $prefix/share/metainfo.

Log message:
mkvtoolnix: updated to 25.0.0

Version 25.0.0 "Prog Noir" 2018-07-12

New features and enhancements
* mkvmerge: SRT/ASS/SSA text subtitles: for files for which no encoding has
  been specified, mkvmerge will try UTF-8 first before falling back to the
  system's default encoding.
* mkvmerge: SRT/ASS/SSA/WebVTT text subtitles: a warning is now emitted if
  invalid 8-bit characters are encountered outside valid multi-byte UTF-8
* mkvmerge: Matroska & MPEG transport stream readers: the encoding of text
  subtitles read from Matroska files can now be changed with the
  `--sub-charset` parameter.
* Linux: starting with release 25 an AppImage will be provided which should
  run on any Linux distribution released around the time of CentOS 7/Ubuntu
  14.04 or later.
* macOS: translations: updated the `build.sh` script to build `libiconv` and a
  complete `gettext`. Together with an additional fix to how translation files
  are located, MKVToolNix can now use all interface languages on macOS,

Bug fixes
* mkvmerge: AVC/h.264: fixed file identification failing for certain
  elementary streams due to internal buffers not being cleared properly.
* mkvmerge: HEVC/h.265: fixed file identification failing for certain
  elementary streams due to internal buffers not being cleared properly.
* mkvmerge: MLP code: fixed various issues preventing MLP from being parsed
* mkvmerge: TrueHD/MLP packetizer; dialog volume normalization removal isn't
  attempted if the track is an MLP track as the operation is only supported
  for TrueHD, not MLP.
* mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: when reading MPLS mkvmerge will now compare the
  MPLS's start and end timestamps against the transport stream's PTS instead
  of its DTS. Otherwise the first key frame of a video track might be dropped
  if it isn't the first in presentation order.
* mkvmerge: JSON identification: mkvmerge will ensure that all strings passed
  to the JSON output modules are valid UTF-8 encoded strings by replacing
  invalid bytes with placeholder characters. This avoids the JSON library
  throwing an exception and mkvmerge aborting on such data.
* mkvmerge: audio packetizers: mkvmerge will now keep discard padding values
  if they're present for packets read from Matroska files.
* mkvmerge: Ogg Opus reader: packet timestamps aren't calculated by summing up
  the duration of all packets starting with timestamp 0 anymore. Instead the
  algorithm is based on the Ogg page's granule position and which packet
  number is currently timestamped (special handling for the first and last
  packets in the stream).

  * This fixes the first timestamp if the first Ogg packet's granule position
    is larger than the number of samples in the first packet (= if the first
    sample's timestamp is bigger than 0). mkvmerge will keep those offsets now
    and inserts "discard padding" only where it's actually needed.
  * It also improves handling of invalid files where the first Ogg packet's
    granule position is smaller than the number of samples in the first packet
    (= the first sample's timestamp is smaller than 0). mkvmerge will now
    shift all timestamps up to 0 in such a case instead of inserting "discard
    padding" elements all over the place.
  * mkvmerge will no longer insert "discard padding" elements if the
    difference between a) the calculated number of samples in the packet
    according to the granule position and b) the actual number of samples as
    calculated from the bitstream is one sample or less and if the packet
    isn't the last one in the stream. This circumvents certain rounding
  * The timestamp of the first packet after a gap in the middle of the stream
    is now calculated based on the Ogg page the packet belongs to, and not
    based on the timestamps before the gap.

* mkvmerge: complete rewrite of the progress handling. It's now based upon the
  total size of all source files and the current position within them instead
  of the number of frames/blocks to be processed. This simplifies calculation
  when appending files and fixes rare cases of when progress report was
  obvious wrong (e.g. stuck at 0% right until the end).
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: non-mandatory elements couldn't be removed
  anymore due to a regression while fixing 2320. They can now be removed

mkvtoolnix: updated to 24.0.0

Version 24.0.0 "Beyond The Pale":

New features and enhancements
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: improved the detection of edit lists consisting of two
  identical entries, each spanning the file's duration as given in the movie
  header atom. The second entry is ignored in such cases.
* mkvmerge: JSON identification: the "display unit" video track property is
  now reported as `display_unit`. The JSON schema has been bumped to v11 for
  this change.
* mkvmerge, mkvextract: AVC/h.264: empty NALUs will now be removed.
* mkvextract: VobSub extraction: empty SPU packets will now be dropped during
  extraction as other tools such as MP4Box cannot handle them

Bug fixes
* mkvmerge: E-AC-3 parser: fixed determining the number of channels for
  streams that contain an AC-3 core with dependent E-AC-3 frames.
* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: fixed mkvmerge buffering the whole file if a
  video track is multiplexed that consists of only one or a few frames.
* mkvmerge: the "display unit" video track property will now be kept \ 
if it is
  set in the source file.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when scanning playlists, all playlists were
  offered for selection regardless of the value of the "minimum playlist
  duration" setting.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: deriving track languages from file names: the
  regular sub-expressions for ISO 639-1 codes could match on empty strings,
  too, causing matches in wrong places and hence no language being recognized
  in certain situations.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: fixed a crash when saving the file fails
  (e.g. because it isn't writable).
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: the editor was wrongfully claiming that
  mandatory elements with default values cannot be removed in the "status"
* MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: on macOS & Linux the setting "enable copying
  tracks by their type" wasn't restored on program start.

Other changes
* Niels Lohmann's JSON library: the bundled version has been updated from
  v1.1.0 (git revision 54d3cab) to v3.1.1 (git revision g183390c1).
* pugixml library: the bundled version has been updated from v1.8 to v1.9
