Summary     : Matroska container manipulation utilities
Description :
Mkvtoolnix is a set of utilities to mux and demux audio, video and subtitle
streams into and from Matroska containers.

Update Information:

* Released v5.7.0.
* mmg: bug fix: mmg will no longer print false warnings about a
chapter UID not being unique. Fixes #760.
* mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, mmg: bug fix: All tools can now deal with
64bit UID values (chapter UIDs, edition UIDs etc).
* mkvmerge: new feature: If "splitting by parts" is active and the
last split part has a finite end point then mkvmerge will finish
muxing after the last part has been completed. Implements #768.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: The DTS and TrueHD packetizers were not
flushed correctly. In some rare circumstances this could lead to
mkvmerge aborting with an error message about the packet queue not
being empty at the end of the muxing process. Fixes #772.
* mmg, mkvinfo's GUI, all .exes: enhancement: Added new icons by
Ben Humpert based on the ones by Eduard Geier (see AUTHORS).
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed handling of tracks in QuickTime/MP4
files with a constant sample size. This fixes the other reason for
the "constant sample size and variable duration not supported"
error. Fixes issue 764.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Tracks in QuickTime/MP4 files with empty
chunk offset tables (STCO and CO64 atoms) are ignored. This fixes
one of the reasons for the "constant sample size and variable
duration not supported" error.
* mmg: bug fix: Fixed mmg's excessive CPU usage during muxing.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Reading DTS from AVI files often resulted in
the error message that DTS headers could not be found in the first
frames. This has been fixed. Fixes issue 759.

* Released v5.6.0.
* documentation: Added Spanish translation of mmg's guide by
Israel Lucas Torrijos (see AUTHORS).
* mkvmerge: bug fix: SRT subtitle entries with colons as the
decimal separator are accepted. Fix for issue 754.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: XML tag files with <Simple> tags that only
contained a name and nested <Simple> were wrongfully rejected as
invalid. Fixes issue 752.
* mkvmerge: enhancement: mkvmerge was optimized to keep cluster
time codes strictly increasing in most situations.
* all: Added a translation to Polish by Daniel (see AUTHORS).
* mkvextract: bug fix: Extraction of AVC/h.264 was completely
broken after 2012-04-09 resulting in files with a length of 0
* mmg: new feature: When adding a Matroska file that has either
the "previous segment UID" or the "next segment UID" set then mmg
will copy those two and the source file's segment UID into the
corresponding controls on the "global" tab if they haven't been
set before. Implements ticket 733.
* mkvmerge: new feature: The verbose identification mode for
Matroska files will now includes the "segment UID", the "next
segment UID" and "previous segment UID" elements.
* mkvmerge: enhancement: In "--split parts:" mode mkvmerge will
use the output file name as it is instead of adding a running
number to it if all the ranges to be kept are to be written into a
single output file. Implements ticket 743.
* mkvextract: bug fix: mkvextract will no longer abort extracting
h.264 tracks if it encounters a NAL smaller than its size
field. Instead it will warn about it and drop the NAL.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Writing more than two parts into the same
file with "--split parts:" resulted in the time codes of the third
and all following parts to be wrong. Fixes ticket 740.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: The "--split parts:" functionality was
not taking dropped ranges into account when calculating the
segment duration for files that more than one range was written
to. Fixes ticket 738.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: The "--split parts:" functionality was
producing a small gap between the first part's last packet's
time code and the second part's first packet's time code if two
parts are written to the same file. Fixes ticket 742.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: The "--split parts:" functionality was
writing a superfluous and empty first part if the first range
starts at 00:00:00. Fixes ticket 737.
* mmg, build system: Fixed building with wxWidgets 2.9.3.
