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 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
  sequences.
* 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,
  too.

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
  correctly.
* 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
    errors.
  * 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
  again.

Log message:
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
  correctly.

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"
  text.
* 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

mkvtoolnix: updated to 23.0.0

Version 23.0.0 "The Bride Said No":

New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: input: format detection uses file-extension to improve performance
  and to give preference when several formats match.
* mkvmerge: AV1: added support for reading AV1 video from Open Bitstream Unit
  files.
* mkvmerge: AV1: adjusted the code for the AV1 bitstream format changes made
  up to 2018-05-02.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: if a track has an edit list with two identical
  entries, each spanning the file's duration as given in the movie header
  atom, then the second entry will now be ignored. Improves the handling of
  files with bogus data.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added options to only enable tracks of certain
  types by default.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added an option to enable dialog normalization
  gain removal by default for all audio tracks for which the operation is
  supported.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when deriving track languages from the file
  names is active and the file name contains the usual season/episode pattern
  (e.g. "S02E14"), then only the part after the season/episode pattern \ 
will be
  used for detecting the language.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the regular expression used for deriving track
  languages from the file names can now be customized in the preferences.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the user can now customize the list of track
  languages the GUI recognizes in file names. This list defaults to a handful
  of common languages instead of the full list of supported languages.
