Branch: CURRENT, Version: 31.0.0, Package name: mkvtoolnix-31.0.0, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

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 31.0.0

Version 31.0.0 "Dolores In A Shoestand":

New features and enhancements
* all programs: added a new option --abort-on-warnings that will cause the
  program to abort after it has emitted the first warning, similar to how it
  aborts after the first error.
* mkvmerge, mkvextract: when closing files that were opened for writing,
  cached data will not be flushed to storage automatically anymore. This
  reverts the workaround implemented for 2469. A new option was added to both
  programs (--flush-on-close) that re-enables flushing for people who are
  affected by data loss such as described in 2469.

  The reason is that automatic flushing causes long delays in processing
  queues when the output by mkvmerge/mkvextract isn't the final product but
  just an intermediate result to be processed further.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the dialog previewing different character sets
  for text subtitles will now keep the position of the displayed text when
  switching between character sets.

Bug fixes
* mkvmerge: AVI reader: using DV type 1 AVIs will now result in an unsupported
  file type being reported (as the underlying AVI library doesn't support
  them) instead of crashing mkvmerge.
* mkvmerge: HEVC: the height of interlaced streams will now be set correctly
  to the height of the full frame instead of the height of a single interlaced
  field.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: edit lists consisting solely of elements that mkvmerge
  doesn't support (such as dwells) are simply ignored. Before no data was read
  for such tracks at all.
* mkvmerge: text subtitles: entries with an explicit duration of 0ms will now
  be handled correctly: the 0ms duration will be stored in Matroska instead of
  the difference between the current and the following entry.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer, chapter editor: fixed drag & drop handling with
  Qt 5.12.0 and newer.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the GUI did not clean up temporary files
  created when running mkvmerge.

Build system changes
* Qt 5.4.0 or newer has required (up from 5.3.0) since version 30.0.0; I just
  forgot to include this entry.

Log message:
mkvtoolnix: updated to 30.1.0

Version 30.1.0 "Forever And More":

Bug fixes
* build system: fixed building on non-UTF-8 locales.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: implemented a workaround for drag & drop not
  working on macOS with Qt 5.12 due to a bug in Qt 5.12.
* MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: when opening a Matroska/WebM file that
  doesn't contain chapters and later saving chapters back to them, the editor
  was truncating the file down to a couple of KB in size.

Log message:
mkvtoolnix: updated to 30.0.0

Version 30.0.0 "Interstellar"

New features and enhancements
* mkvextract: WAV extractor: mkvextract will now write W64 files instead of
  WAV files if the file name extension is `.w64` or if the final file size is
  bigger than 4 GB, the file size limit for WAV files.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: a new button was added next to the "destination
  file" controls. Clicking it shows a menu with the ten most recently used
  output directories. Selecting one of them will change the destination file
  to the selected directory keeping the file name.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer (preferences): the ten most recently used values
  for the "relative output directory" and "fixed output \ 
directory" settings
  are now saved. The corresponding settings have been changed into combo boxes
  allowing quick access to those recent values.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer (preferences): the predefined split sizes and
  durations can now be customized in the preferences.
* MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: added an option in the "Chapter \ 
editor" menu
  for appending chapters from an existing file to the currently open editor
  tab.
* MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: added an action in the context menu for
  copying the selected entry and all of its children to another open editor
  tab.

Bug fixes
* mkvmerge: all files opened for writing will now be flushed once before
  they're closed. This ensures the operating system actually writes all cached
  data to disk preventing data loss in certain situations such as power
  outages or buggy drivers in combination with suspending the computer.
* mkvmerge: AAC: under certain conditions 8 channel audio files were taken for
  7 channel ones.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: removing a file added as an "additional \ 
part"
  will no longer cause a crash.
* source code: fixed compilation with Boost 1.69.0 after API-breaking change
  to the `boost::tribool` class.

Log message:
mkvtoolnix: updated to 29.0.0

Version 29.0.0 "Like It Or Not"

Important notes
* The string formatting library used was switched from boost::format to
  [fmt](http://fmtlib.net/). See the section "Build system changes" for
  details.

New features and enhancements
* MKVToolNix GUI: added an option in the preferences for disabling automatic
  scaling for high DPI displays.
* MKVToolNix GUI: the GUI will now prevent the system from going to sleep
  while the job queue is running. This feature is implemented for macOS,
  Windows and Linux/Unix systems where the org.freedesktop.login1.Manager
  D-Bus interface is available.

Bug fixes
* mkvmerge: chapter generation: the start timestamps of chapters generated in
  intervals was wrong for files whose smallest video timestamp was bigger than
  0.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed handling of atoms whose size exceeds the parent
  atom's size.
* mkvmerge, MKVToolNix GUI's chapter editor: the chapter name template will
  now also be used when reading Ogg-style chapter files with empty chapter
  names.
* mkvextract: AAC: mkvextract will now write the program config element (PCE)
  before the first AAC raw data packet if the PCE is present in the
  AudioSpecificConfig structure in the Codec Private Matroska element. The
  PCE carries vital information about the number of channels and is required
  in certain cases.
* mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's header editor: in situations when a one-byte
  space must be covered by a new EBML void element the following element must
  be moved up instead. If that moved element is a cluster, the corresponding
  cue entries will now be updated to reflect the cluster's new position.
* MKVToolNix GUI: Windows: the application manifest is now included properly
  so that Windows actually recognizes it.

Build system changes
* Qt's D-Bus implementation is now required for building on systems other than
  macOS and Windows,
* The boost::format library is not used anymore.
* The [fmt library](http://fmtlib.net/) is now required. Versions 3 and
  newer are supported. As not all Linux distributions include packages for the
  library, its release 5.2.1 comes bundled with MKVToolNix. The configure
  script will check for a system version of the library and use it if present
  and recent enough. Otherwise it will fall back to the bundled version and
  link that statically.
