* Mon Aug 30 2021 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 61.0.0 New features and enhancements: * all: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: implemented support for officially registered IANA language tag extensions. * mkvmerge: track selection: when using language tags for selecting which tracks to keep, mkvmerge will now use component-based language tag matching instead of comparing them verbatim. This means that only those components (language, region etc.) the user specified will be required to exist and be equal. For example, if a file contains three subtitle tracks with languages `es` (generic Spanish), `es-MX` (Spanish as spoken in Mexico) and `es-ES` (Spanish as spoken in Spain), the user can use `--stracks es` to match all three tracks or be more specific with e.g. `--stracks es-MX` which would only match one track. Similarly inverting the selection with e.g. `--stracks !es` would get rid of all three tracks, not just the one for the generic Spanish. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: deriving track languages from file names: the GUI can now detect full BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags in file names. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: deriving track languages from file names: the default list of boundary characters now includes `-`. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the GUI now defaults to the "lower" process priority setting for new installations in order to leave more room for other applications, especially interactive ones. Up to and including v59 the default was the "normal" process priority. v60 changed that to "lowest", which turned out to be much slower on Windows for no real gain over "lower". The setting will be auto-corrected by the GUI if the settings file were saved last with a version between v220.127.116.11 & v18.104.22.168 & "lowest" & it is still set to "lowest". * HEVC dumper development tool: the tool has been renamed to `xvc_dump` and extended to be able to dump AVC/H.264 bitstreams, too. It now also detects the type of bitstream framing (ISO 14496-15 vs. ITU-T H.264/H.265 Annex B). Bug fixes: * all: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: fixed a corner case of wrongfully allowing scripts/variants not listed in any of the entries in the prefix list when the prefix list contains prefixes restricting scripts/variants and a prefix solely with the language at the same time (example: the variant `ekavsk` with its prefixes `sr`, `sr-Cyrl` and `sr-Latn` where e.g. `sr-ekavsk` and `sr-Cyrl-ekavsk` should be allowed but not `sr-Bali-ekavsk`). * mkvmerge: HEVC/H.265: the frame type of B frames was often wrongfully signalled as P frames instead, both with `BlockGroup` (missing second references) and `SimpleBlock` ("discardable" flag not set) elements. * mkvmerge: SSA/ASS packetizer: the frame numbers will now be re-calculated when appending SSA/ASS tracks so that frame numbers of appended tracks are always strictly higher than frame numbers of the track they're appended to. * mkvmerge, MKVToolNix GUI's chapter editor: BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: when BCP 47 language tags are used with a language code that isn't part of ISO 639-2, the programs will now write a legacy language element set to `und` ("undetermined") instead of not writing such an element at all or writing one with an invalid code. * mkvmerge, MKVToolNix GUI's chapter editor: BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: the programs will ensure that the legacy and IETF language elements written will be unique within the scope of the same "chapter display" element. * mkvinfo, MKVToolNix GUI's info tool: in summary mode the frame type was reported wrong for `BlockGroup` elements in which the `ReferenceBlock` elements were located behind the `Block` element. Build system changes: * all: `std::codecvt_utf8` is now used instead of Boost's `utf8_codecvt_facet`. The bundled copy the latter in `lib/boost` has therefore been removed. - Drop mkvtoolnix-use-system-boost.patch (no longer necessary) * Sat Jul 31 2021 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 60.0.0 New features and enhancements: * all: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: added support for language families from ISO 639-5 that aren't part of 639-2. * all: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: implemented support for Alpha 2 country codes of the "user-defined" category: `AA`, `QM`–`QZ`, `XA`–`XZ` and `ZZ`. * all: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: updated the various lists of valid subtags from the official specs. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: pressing the keyboard shortcut for the track's "Language" label (Alt+L for English) will now open the language dialog. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added an option in the preferences for turning off the colored boxes indicating which file each track belongs to. Bug fixes: * all: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: fixed validating extended language & variant subtags against their allowed prefixes (e.g. a valid tag with a country code as in `de-CH-1996` is recognized as valid while two generally known variants that aren't allowed together as in `de-1901-1996` is recognized as invalid). * all: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: when looking up a language for a two- or three-letter code, the programs will no longer compare that code with language names as that was unintended, ambiguous (e.g. the code "Ga" could be interpreted as the 639-2 alpha-2 code for "Irish" or as the name of the language called "Ga") and only worked with languages whose name was at most three letters long. * mkvmerge: HEVC/H.265: appending Matroska files with HEVC tracks might lead to the loss of the first couple of frames from each of the second and all following files. * mkvmerge, mkvextract: HEVC/H.265 parser: fixed the programs aborting when parsing VPS or SPS NALUs with invalid content due to unhandled exceptions. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when the option "use legacy MIME types for font attachments" is enabled, the GUI will now use `application/x-truetype-font` for font collection files. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding multiple files at once, the GUI will sort file names with numbers the way a human would expect it to. For example, `1.mp4`, `9.aac`, `10.srt`, `11.srt` are now sorted exactly that order instead of `1.mp4`, `10.srt`, `11.srt`, `9.aac`. * MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: the header editor will now honor the "use legacy MIME types when adding font attachments" setting when adding new attachments. * Sat Jul 10 2021 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 59.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: WebVTT parser: the parser now follows the specs' rules for parsing timestamps more closely by being more lenient: it allows arbitrary number of spaces & tabs at the start of the line & around the arrow; it allows any number of digits for the hours. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding a Blu-ray playlist without scanning for other playlists the GUI will now look for disc library information & let the user select which one to use if there's more than one entry. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added an option for sorting files & tracks by track types when adding them to multiplex settings. The order is: video first followed by audio, subtitles and other types. Files & tracks can still be reordered manually later. The option is enabled by default & can be found in the preferences → "Multiplexer" page → "Adding files" section. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added an option for recognizing file name sequences such as `movie.001.mp4`, `movie.002.mp4`, `movie.003.mp4` when adding multiple files at once. If a sequence is detected, the only first file will be added while the second and following file names will be appended to the first one. The option is enabled by default & can be found in the preferences → "Multiplexer" page → "Adding files" section. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added small colored boxes for each file & track in order to indicate from which file each track is read. The colors used can be configured in the preferences → "Multiplexer" page → "File & track colors" section. Bug fixes: * build system: fixed compilation with fmt v8. Fixes #3151. * mkvmerge: SRT subtitle reader: characters that aren't valid according to the assumed encoding of the file will now be replaced by the Unicode "Replacement Character" U+FFFD instead of keeping the invalid characters, potentially violating the Matroska specs. * mkvmerge: WebVTT parser: the parser now accepts timestamps with hours larger than 99. * mkvextract: TTA extraction, only on Windows: fixed removing the temporary file created during extraction. * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's multiplexer & header editor: MIME type detection is now done using Qt instead of the `magic` library. The main impact is the MIME types of TrueType & OpenType fonts are now detected correctly. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding files to the multiplexer by running the GUI's executable with file names as command line arguments, the source directory will be remembered as the "last open directory" again, causing subsequent uses of the "open file" dialog to start in the same directory. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the "default track flag" column in the track list was missing its icons. Additionally it contained text even for things that aren't regular tracks and therefore do not actually have that flag (e.g. chapters or tags). * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the default for the dialog asking the user what to do with dragged & dropped files if they've never seen the dialog is back to adding the files to the current multiplex settings instead of "add as additional parts" which was an unintentional default. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the "show command line" dialog will now always use backward slashes for the "Windows (cmd.exe)" mode and forward slashes for the "Linux/Unix shells" mode, regardless of the operating system it's currently running on. Build system changes: * The Qt library is now required for building all applications, even the command-line ones, as they use Qt's MIME type detection capabilities. In turn this means that you cannot disable the Qt usage anymore; either Qt5 or Qt 6 is required. You can still chose not to build MKVToolNix GUI, though. A new option has been added to `configure` for this purpose: `--disable-gui`. * The `gmp` library is now required. * The `magic` library is not used anymore. * The `PCRE2` & `JPCRE2` libraries are not used anymore. The bundled version of `JPCRE2` was removed. * Boost's "rational" library is not used anymore. * `configure`: the option `--enable-appimage` has been removed. The location of the relevant directories within an AppImage is now detected automatically. * The bundled `fmt` library was updated to v8.0.0. - Use system version of utfcpp * Sun Jun 13 2021 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 58.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge, MKVToolNix GUI's multiplexer: the handling of the "default track" flag has been changed to match the recent changes to the Matroska specifications. The new semantics are that if it is set, it is supposed to signal to the player that this track is eligible for being played by default, potentially taking other factors such as user preferences regarding languages into account. This implies that more than one track of each type can have this flag set. For example, a Blu-ray disc with three audio tracks might have the main audio in both English and Japanese, whereas the third audio track contains the director's comments. In such a case the first two tracks should have the "default track" flag set, the third one shouldn't. Earlier `mkvmerge` was enforcing that only one track of each type could have the flag set. This restriction has been removed, both in `mkvmerge` and in the GUI's multiplexer. `mkvpropedit` and the GUI's header editor are unaffected as they've always allowed to set the flag on as many tracks as the user wanted. * mkvmerge: AVC/H.264 & HEVC/H.265 identification: added the stream's pixel dimensions (AVC only; were present for HEVC already) & default duration. * mkvmerge, mkvextract: HEVC/H.265: added support for reading single-layer Dolby Vision from Annex B type bitstreams (elementary streams, MPEG transport streams). * mkvinfo: the option `-X`/`--full-hexdump` now affects all binary elements, not just the frame data in `SimpleBlock` and `BlockGroup` elements. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the "delay" and "sync" options can now be used for chapters in source files, too. * MKVToolNix GUI: when moving list entries up & down with the optional buttons or the keyboard shortcuts (instead of using drag & drop), the GUI ensures that the top-most selected entry remains visible after the move. * MKVToolNix GUI: added an option in the preference to use legacy MIME types for font attachments instead of the current standard ones (e.g. 'application/x-truetype-font' instead of 'font/sfnt' and 'font/ttf'). Bug fixes: * build system: fixed filtering out optimization options when compiling the file `iso639_language_list.cpp` (before only numeric optimization levels were filtered out and only if it wasn't the last option in the list of flags). * build system: when libmagic was detected via `pkg-config`, MKVToolNix was actually compiled without support for libmagic due to a preprocessor symbol not being defined. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed an issue with timestamps overflowing when the file's or the track's time scale is large. * mkvmerge, mkvextract: fixed key frame handling for `BlockGroup` elements with a forward reference but no backward references. * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's chapter editor: the programs will no longer omit writing mandatory elements set to their default value if other elements of the same type are present in the same master. This affects mostly the "chapter language" element which may occur multiple times within the same "chapter display" master. If it does occur multiple times and one of them is set to "English" (which is that element's default value), that element will now be written, too. * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's chapter editor: when parsing chapter files IETF & legacy language elements as well as legacy country elements will now be properly generated depending on which exist already, especially when there's more than one language and/or country element in a "chapter display" element. * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's chapter editor: fixed reading OGM-style chapter files with timestamps that don't have exactly three decimal places. Any number of decimal places between one and nine is now supported for nanosecond precision. * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: added/fixed support for "chapter display" elements with multiple languages or countries. Build system changes: * Qt 6: added support for building with Qt 6. `configure` will look for Qt 6 first and only continue looking for Qt 5 if Qt 6 isn't found or disabled via `--disable-qt6`. Qt 6 detection works by first looking for the `qmake6` binary. Its location can be specified with the `--with-qmake6=…` option. All other Qt 6 related facts (such as compiler & linker flags or the position of the other required tools such as `lconvert`, `moc`, `rcc` and `uic`) will be derived from the output generated by `qmake6`. Note that at this point Qt 6 is not yet supported for the cross-compilation build to Windows, nor is a static Qt 6 build supported yet. Note that the command line options `--enable-static-qt`, `--with-qt-pkg-config-modules` and `--without-qt-pkg-config` only apply to the Qt 5 and have no effect on Qt 6. * Qt 5: the options for specifying the position of the tools (`--with-moc=…`,`--with-rcc=…` and `--with-uic=…`) have been removed. Their position will now be derived from the output generated by `qmake`. * `configure`: completely disabling the GUI now requires passing both `--disable-qt6` and `--disable-qt` options. * Boost's multi-precision library is now required. * Boost v1.66 or newer is now required. * Sat May 22 2021 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Up date to version 57.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: added support for reading Dolby Vision from MP4 files (FourCCs `dvh1` and `dvhe`; configuration records `dvcC`, `dvvC` and `hvcE` will be converted into block addition mappings). * mkvmerge: SRT subtitles: mkvmerge now accepts empty text files with the extension `.srt` as SRT subtitle files, enabling the creation of empty SRT tracks. * mkvmerge, mkvextract: HEVC/H.265: access unit delimiter NALUs will no longer be discarded, neither during muxing nor during extraction. * MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: switched the order & wording of controls in the "enabling items" panel to make it clearer that certain controls define exceptions. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: HEVC/H.265 parser: several NALU types, notably the Dolby Vision-specific NALUs ("unspecified 62" and "unspecified 63") and suffix SEI NALUs, are now stored with the frame they belong to instead of with the next frame. * mkvmerge: HEVC/H.265 packetizer: fixed setting the track's default duration when reading HEVC/H.265 from Matroska files that don't have a default duration set. * mkvmerge: HEVC/H.265 packetizer: fixed the calculation of the duration of frames so that `SimpleBlock` elements can be used again instead of `BlockGroups` with `BlockDuration` elements. * mkvmerge, mkvextract: HEVC/H.265 parser: fixed issues with ordering & duplication of certain NALUs (parameter set & prefix SEI NALUs). * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when dragging & dropping files to the multiplexer, the source directory will be remembered as the "last open directory" again, causing subsequent uses of the "open file" dialog to start in the same directory. * mkvinfo: fixed the position of frames in block groups containing "block duration" elements in summary mode (e.g. for subtitle tracks). Build system changes: * `configure` will now try to detect `libmagic` via `pkg-config` and fall back to including & linking directly if it cannot be found via `pkg-config`. * Fri Apr 09 2021 firstname.lastname@example.org - Update to version version 56.1.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: AAC: added support for LOAS/LATM files with channel configuration indexes 9–21 (e.g. channel count 22.2 for index 13) according to Rec. ITU-R BS.1196-7 & ISO/IEC 23008-3:2019. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: HEVC/H.265 parser: fixed invalid memory access that could happen when reading certain types of HEVC data (e.g. with changing parameter sets mid-stream) from certain containers (e.g. Matroska). This bug was introduced in release 56.0.0. * mkvextract: AAC: mkvextract will now abort with an useful error message when the user tries to extract a track whose 'audio-specific config' element in `CodecPrivate` signals a number of channels of 7 or greater than 8 as that isn't supported by the ADTS format. Build system changes: * configure: the `--enable-ubsan` option hasn't actually enabled anything since release 39.0.0. * Mon Apr 05 2021 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 56.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit: tags: the programs will no longer write tag elements that are mandatory and set to their default value (e.g. "tag language" set to `und` = undetermined). * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI chapter editor: chapters: the programs will no longer write chapter elements that are mandatory and set to their default value (e.g. "chapter language" set to `eng` = English or "Chapter flag enabled" = 1). * mkvextract: chapters: mkvextract will no longer add a `ChapterLanguage` element set to `eng` to the generated XML content if the source file doesn't contain such an element. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when using the "tab widget below the files & tracks" layout option for the track properties the elements in the "general options" tab will use six rows à four columns instead of twelve rows à two columns, greatly reducing the required height. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: AAC reader: fixed mkvmerge aborting to read AAC files bigger than 2 GB with a message about not being able to allocate memory. * mkvmerge: chapters: `ChapLanguageIETF` elements were still created when the option `--disable-language-ietf` was given after an option leading to the creation of chapters. Now the position doesn't matter anymore. * mkvmerge: chapters: when the option `--disable-language-ietf` is used, `ChapLanguageIETF` elements won't be written even when sources are read (Matroska files or XML chapters files) that do contain those elements. * mkvmerge: tags: when the option `--disable-language-ietf` is used, `TagLanguageIETF` elements won't be written. * mkvmerge: tags: mkvmerge will no longer write language elements for the track statistics tags it creates, making the effective language "undetermined" due to `und` being the default value for the legacy tag language element. * mkvmerge: tags: the XML tag parser will now validate all `<Simple>` children of `<Tag>` elements, not just the first for each `<Tag>`. * mkvmerge: tags: the XML tag parser now uses the spec-compliant `und` ("undetermined") as the default language for `<Simple>` tags instead of `eng`. * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit: tags: mkvmerge will no longer set the "target type" for track statistics tags (earlier it used `MOVIE`). The "target type value" will still be set to `50`. * mkvmerge, mkvextract: HEVC/H.265: both programs will now normalize the placement of VPS, SPS and PPS NALUs. Each key frame is prefixed with exactly one copy of the currently active parameter sets. This fixes certain classes of bugs related to splitting/appending. * mkvinfo: when compiled with newer versions of the `fmt` library, certain numbers were not output correctly (e.g. a track's audio sampling frequency of 48000 might be output as 48). * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: deriving the track language from the file name will match languages case insensitively again (like versions prior to v55). * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: under certain circumstances keyboard shortcuts such as `Ctrl+W` for closing the active tab or `Ctrl+R` for starting to multiplex ceased to work until the user did certain other things (such as switching to a different tool & back to the multiplexer or opening the multiplexer menu). This started with v54. * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: the editor will no longer create empty `ChapterCountry` elements when adding a chapter name with no default country selected in the preferences. Build system changes: * The bundled `fmt` library was updated to v7.1.3. * Sat Mar 06 2021 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 55.0.0 Bug fixes: * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the user can now configure what to do when using the "Add source files" button independently of the setting for what happens when files are dragged & dropped onto the GUI. The same options are available, but they're distinct settings, allowing for different use cases. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: deriving the track language from file names doesn't use one big regular expression of all enabled languages anymore. Instead, the file name is split into parts on a list of characters (such as `.` or `(` and `)`; configurable in the preferences). This prevents the regular expression becoming too big for the regular expression library to handle when many languages are enabled. * MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: the language lists for "deriving track languages" and "enabling items by language" always included all the ISO 639-3 languages, even if those weren't enabled in the "often-used languages" pane. Other changes: * mkvmerge, MKVToolNix GUI multiplexer: the functionality for changing the length of the NALU "size" field for AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265 tracks has been removed. The corresponding command-line option will continue to be recognized by mkvmerge as not to break existing third-party applications, but it won't actually do anything. * Fri Feb 26 2021 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 54.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: added support for using ISO 639-3 language codes in IETF BF47 language tags. * mkvmerge: AC-3 parser: added support for byte-swapped AC-3 data. * mkvmerge: Matroska reader: for audio tracks that have the bit depth track header set mkvmerge will now keep that header even for codecs that don't require it for decoding. * mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader, PCM audio tracks: mkvmerge will now re-order the channels for 5.1, 7.0 and 7.1 channel tracks from the Blu-ray layout to the WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE layout expected in Matroska. * mkvmerge, mkvinfo, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI: added support for the following new track header elements: "hearing impaired" flag, "visual impaired" flag, "text descriptions" flag, "original" flag, "commentary" flag. * MKVToolNix GUI: added support for using ISO 639-3 language codes in IETF BF47 language tags. As there are several thousand of them, they're deactivated by default and must be activated in the preferences ("GUI" → "Often used selections" → "Languages"). * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding Blu-rays the user can select multiple playlists to add simultaneously in the "select playlist to add" dialog. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the file name extensions "eb3" and "ec3" were added for Dolby Digital Plus & "mpl" for Dolby TrueHD in the file dialogs. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding multiple files the dialog asking the user what to do with them has gained a new checkbox. If enabled, all files containing at least one video track will always be placed in newly created multiplex setting. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added a menu entry in the "Multiplexer" for adding all files that are currently in the clipboard. Bug fixes: * mkvextract: AAC: fixed wrong channel mask field in the ADTS headers for 7.1 channel layouts. * mkvextract: h.265/HEVC extraction: if the first frame starts with the parameter sets (SPS, PPS & VPS), the ones from CodecPrivate aren't written and the ones from the first frame are kept. * mkvmerge: fixed the calculation of chapter timestamps read from NTSC DVDs. * MKVToolNix GUI: IETF BCP 47 language widget: the language combo box will now always contain the language code the user enters in the free-form field, even if it isn't in the list of often-used languages the user configured in the preferences. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when browsing for the destination file name the default directory is now chosen according to the preferences regarding how the destination file name should be formed. For example, if the policy is set to "fixed output directory" then that output directory will be the one initially set when the directory selection dialog is opened. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: fixed the removal of appended source files if the "delete source files" end-of-job action is enabled. * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: when importing chapters from DVDs the IETF BCP 47 language elements will be set, too, not just the legacy language elements. Build system changes: * libEBML v1.4.2 and libMatroska v1.6.3 are now required. The optional, bundled copies of both libraries have been updated to those versions. This bump in requirements fixes several heap overflow bugs in libEBML. * MKVToolNix is now using the C++17 library feature "file system library" instead of Boost's "file system" and "system" libraries. For the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) libstdc++ this means v8 or newer is required; for clang's libc++ it means v7 or newer. * Sat Jan 30 2021 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 53.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: AVI reader: added support for reading the video aspect ratio from the video properties header (`vprp` chunk) if present and setting the display dimensions accordingly. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: for h.264/AVC tracks that don't have an `AVCConfigurationBox` (`avcC` atom) in their sample description (`stsd`) atom or whose `avcC` atom contains no content `mkvmerge` will now re-derive the `AVCConfigurationBox` from the bitstream. * mkvextract: mkvextract will now check if any of the destination file names is the same as the source file name and abort with an error if that's the case. * MKVToolNix GUI: when querying the user for a file name for saving things (e.g. multiplexer settings or an attachment in the header editor), the automatically suggested file name will now be based on the situation-specific file names (e.g. the destination file name for multiplexer settings or the attachment's name when saving an attachment in the header editor) instead of the directory's name. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when deriving track languages from file names the GUI will now select the right-most match instead of the left-most one. For example, "La.vie.en.rose.(fr).srt" will now be detected as French (fr) instead of English (en). * MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: the items in the "pre-defined …" lists can now be renamed by double-clicking with the mouse or pressing the F2 key. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: stretching chapter timestamps with `--chapter-sync` now works correctly with floating point values including fractions of floating point numbers (e.g. `12.3/45.67`). The tooltips in the GUI have been adjusted accordingly. * mkvmerge: MPEG 1/2 video handling: the "default duration" header field was often half the value it actually should be, resulting in all video frames having an explicit block duration with the correct value. * mkvmerge: MPEG 1/2 video handling: the data stored in `Codec private` and `Codec state` doesn't contain extensions other than sequence & sequence display extensions anymore. * mkvmerge: tag handling: when remuxing a Matroska file with the `--no-track-tags`, existing `SOURCE_ID` track tags are now skipped, too. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the drop-down boxes with pre-defined track names now follow the order set in the preferences instead of sorting the entries alphabetically. * Tue Jan 05 2021 email@example.com - Update to version 52.0.0 New features and enhancements: * MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: the maximum number of jobs to run concurrently can now be increased in the preferences. The default remains at 1. * MKVToolNix GUI: the GUI will now add a context-specific default extension to file names selected for saving on platforms that don't add one itself (e.g. GNOME). For example, when saving multiplexer settings the extension `.mtxcfg` will be added. * MKVToolNix GUI: added an option to the preferences for the window to stay on top of other windows. Bug fixes: * mkvextract: h.265/HEVC extraction: the code for skipping extraction of prefix SEI NALUs in the first frame was skipping two bytes too few, resulting in broken processing of all following bytes. * libEBML: the optional, bundled version of libEBML was updated to v1.4.1. Build system changes: * libEBML v1.4.1 is now required due to a bug in libEBML that caused pointers to just-freed memory being returned to the caller under certain invalid data constellations, causing use-after-free errors in all of MKVToolNix's programs. * Sun Oct 04 2020 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 51.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI: IETF BCP 47 language tags: added missing support for UN M.49 regions for which there are no corresponding ISO 3166 alpha codes. This enables language tags such as `es-419` = Spanish in Latin America and the Caribbean. * MKVToolNix GUI: IETF BCP 47 language tags: the text in the widget displaying the current language & the corresponding edit button is now displayed like a link (depending on the theme: different color & underlined), making it clearer that not just the edit button can be clicked but the text, too. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: AV1 parser: fixed mkvmerge crashing after uncaught exceptions due to certain data conditions. Found by fuzzying. * mkvmerge: AV1 packetizer: the duration of frames wasn't set properly. When appending AV1 IVF or OBU files this meant that the last frame of the Nth file and the first frame of file N+1 had the same timestamp. * mkvmerge: DTS reader: fixed handling of buffers with an odd length when byte-swapped DTS is detected so that mkvmerge doesn't abort with a failed assertion. Found by fuzzying. * mkvmerge: h.264/AVC and h.265/HEVC elementary stream readers: mkvmerge will no longer claim to recognize data that looks like AVC or HEVC but with invalid video width/height values as that lead to failed assertions in libEBML later. Found by fuzzying. * mkvmerge: h.265/HEVC parser: fixed mkvmerge aborting after uncaught exceptions due to certain data constellations found by fuzzying. * mkvmerge: IVF reader: fixed mkvmerge crashing with a "division by zero" error due to certain data conditions. Found by fuzzying. * mkvmerge: fixed mkvmerge aborting with a "division by zero" error due to the timestamp scaling factor being 0 after handling certain data constellations. Found by fuzzying. * mkvmerge: track statistics: fixed a "division by zero" error when the content's shorter than 1ms. Found by fuzzying. * mkvmerge, mkvinfo, mkvextract, mkvpropedit: Matroska access class: fixed an invalid memory access under certain data conditions. Found by fuzzying. * MKVToolNix GIU: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: the GUI will no longer open the language dialog when clicking on a disabled language display widget. * MKVToolNix GUI: IETF BCP 47 language tags: the "variants" combo-boxes were not populated even when the language tag was valid and contained at a variant. * MKVToolNix GUI: IETF BCP 47 language tags: when no language is selected, at least one of the other components (extended subtags, region, or variants) has something selected and "private use" is not empty, the GUI would claim this to be a valid tag, which it isn't. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when the tracks/chapters/tags selection changes from "at least one entry selected" to "no entry selected", the input controls will be reset to their default state and not just disabled. Build system changes: * `configure` now checks for the presence of the a system-wide installed copy of the JPCRE2 C++ wrapper library for the PCRE2 library and uses that if it's new enough (at least v10.32.1). If not, the bundled version will be used as a fallback. * Sun Sep 06 2020 email@example.com - Update to version 50.0.0 New feature: IETF BCP 47 language tags: * I've written up a [nice FAQ https://gitlab.com/mbunkus/mkvtoolnix/-/wikis/Languages-in-Matroska-and-MKVToolNix about the switch to using IETF BCP 47 language tags, how they interact with legacy language elements, how the programs actually behave and how to disable their use if necessary. * mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: mkvmerge will now accept full BCP 47 language tags for all options taking a language. mkvmerge will always write "LanguageIETF" track header elements. If the language tag contains a valid ISO 639-2 language code it will also set the legacy "Language" track header element to the included ISO 639-2 code. * mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: if present the "LanguageIETF" track header element will be reported as the `language_ietf` property in JSON identification mode. * mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags in chapters: mkvmerge will now write "ChapLanguageIETF" elements when creating chapter atoms, either when reading the simple chapter format or when generating chapters due to the `--generate-chapters` command line option. * mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags in tags: mkvmerge will now write "TagLanguageIETF" elements when creating "simple tag" elements, either when reading tag XML files or when generating them. * mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: added an option `--disable-language-ietf` that causes mkvmerge to only write the legacy language elements. * mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's chapter editor: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags in chapters: when reading XML chapter files the programs will now add "ChapLanguageIETF" elements for atoms that don't contain them. The values are derived from existing "ChapterLanguage" elements. * mkvpropedit: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: setting/deleting the track language now acts on both the old language element as well as the "LanguageIETF" track header element. * mkvpropedit: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: added an option `--disable-language-ietf` that causes mkvpropedit to apply changes to the `language` track header property only to the legacy language track header element. * mkvinfo: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: added support for the "LanguageIETF" track header element. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added full support for IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags for both track and chapter languages. * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter: added full support for IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags for chapter languages. * MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: added full support for IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags for track header languages. The header editor allows editing of the legacy language elements and the IETF BCP 47 language elements independent of each other. Other new features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: the chapter generation mode `when-appending` now also works with the splitting modes `parts:` & `parts-frames:` when using the `…,+…` syntax for appending other sections of the source file to the same destination file. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the file selection dialogs now include the extension `.dtsma` for DTS files. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: sped up parsing MP4 DASH files with a lot of segments (`trun` atoms) quite a bit. * The PCRE2 regular expression library is now used instead of `std::regex` for big performance improvements in all places where regular expressions are used for parsing big chunks of text, e.g. in the subtitle parsers. Bug fixes: * MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: under certain conditions changing the selected entry in the page tree on the left did not cause the page shown on the right to be updated. * mkvmerge: splitting text by a fixed string (e.g. `,`) is now done by using `std::string.find()` instead of using a regular-expression-based text splitting function, greatly improving its performance. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed handling of `tkhd` atoms of version 1. Build system changes: * The PCRE2 library (the 8-bit variant) is now required. * Sun Aug 02 2020 firstname.lastname@example.org - Update to version 49.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: added support for copying the new track header elements `BlockAddIDName`, `BlockAddIDType`, `BlockAddIDValue` and `BlockAddIDExtraData` from Matroska files if they exist. * mkvinfo: added support for the new track header elements `BlockAdditionMapping`, `BlockAddIDName`, BlockAddIDType`, `BlockAddIDValue` and `BlockAddIDExtraData`. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the list of recent directories can now be edited in the preferences → "Multiplexer" → "Destination file name". * MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: the values in the various "predefined values" lists can now be re-ordered freely by dragging & dropping. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: Matroska reader: when reading tracks (e.g. a subtitle track) from Matroska files with their `default track` flag set to `yes`, and when overwriting those via the command line to `no`, `mkvmerge` would not promote additional tracks of the same type from other files (e.g. another subtitle track from an SRT file). * mkvmerge: SRT reader: empty lines inside entries were doubled. * mkvmerge: subtitles: when calculating the rounded duration of each entry the error from rounding the corresponding timestamp will be taken into account. * mkvextract: SSA/ASS extraction: mkvextract is no longer inserting empty lines before the `Dialogue:` lines. * mkvextract: USF subtitles: start & end timestamps were too high by a factor of 1.000.000. * MKVToolNix: info tool: when saving to a text file the checkbox "Save as default for saving output to text files" did nothing. * MKVToolNix: info tool: when saving to a text file in "all elements in a tree-like structure" mode, the GUI always stopped at the first cluster regardless of the setting of the "verbosity" option. * MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: when tooltips were disabled the dialogs for adding new entries to the various "predefined values" lists were missing their texts. * configure: fixed detection of QtDBus. Fixes #2886. Build system changes: * libMatroska v1.6.1 is now required. The bundled version has been updated to that version. * Sun Jun 28 2020 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 48.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: AC-3: file identification will report AC-3 tracks encoded in Dolby Surround EX as codec "AC-3 Dolby Surround EX". * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: on new installations the GUI will now recognize all known ISO 639-2 language codes in file names by default instead of only the top 100 of languages by native speakers. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: on new installations the list of "often used languages" will by default only contain certain agnostic ones ("multiple languages", "no linguistic content", "reserved for local use", "uncoded languages"), "English" and the default user interface language. The "list of spoken languages by native speaks" isn't used anymore. * MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: added an option to remove all attachments to the tree context menu. * MKVToolNix GUI: while the GUI is running it will remember the last page that was selected when the preferences dialog is closed. Upon re-opening the preferences that page will be selected by default. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: fixed a segmentation fault when exiting prematurely due to write errors such as the destination having run out of space. * mkvmerge: DTS: fixed wrong channel count for DTS tracks with XCh extensions. * mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: fixed detecting h.264/AVC and h.265/HEVC tracks that consist of only a single frame. * mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: fixed handling of unbounded PES sizes for tracks that consist of only a single PES packet. * mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: PGS subtitle tracks are now exempt from the "detect bogus subtitle timestamps" heuristic which could lead to some PGS subtitles not being timestamped correctly. Symptoms were that they were shown at the wrong time or that they were shown indefinitely. * mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: when reading MPLS playlists the start timestamps of a play items were handled wrong: all the timestamps of packets read were compared to that start timestamp, dropping those packets whose timestamps were smaller than the play item's start timestamp. The correct behavior is to accept all packets as soon as the first one with a timestamp equal to or larger than the play item's start timestamp is encountered. This could result in PGS subtitle entries located right at the start of the play item being garbled/lost as they consist of multiple PES packets for which some timestamps are often slightly smaller. * mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: when reading MPLS playlists mkvmerge will no longer read the whole M2TS files they reference, processing only the packets lying inside the timestamp range given by the playlists's play item's start & end timestamps. Instead mkvmerge will use the index information present in corresponding clip information (CLPI) files in order to seek to the nearest file position of the play item's start timestamp. Additionally mkvmerge will simply stop processing a file once the end timestamp is seen. This change greatly speeds up processing files from which only small portions must be read. * mkvmerge: WavPack: fixed support for files created by v5 of the program. Checksums, DSD audio data and non-standard sampling rates are handled correctly. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: fixed the cursor being positioned wrong after entering or pasting characters that aren't allowed in file names into the "destination file" control. Build system changes: * libEBML v1.4.0 and libMatroska v1.6.0 are now required. Other changes: * The source code repository's main development branch was renamed to `main`. * Tue Jun 02 2020 Michel Normand <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Add _constraints file to avoid build error for ppc64/ppc64le * Sat May 30 2020 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 47.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: chapters: mkvmerge can now read chapters from DVDs if the user specifies the path to a DVD folder structure via the `--chapters …` parameter. By default chapters from the first title will be imported. This can be changed by append `:<title number>` to the file/directory name in the `--chapters …` argument, e.g. `--chapters /srv/dvds/BigBuckBunny/VIDEO_TS:3`. This feature requires mkvmerge to have been built with the `libdvdread` library. * mkvmerge: added `--engage append_and_split_flac` that enables mkvmerge to append and split FLAC tracks, restoring pre-v45 behavior. The resulting tracks will be broken: the official FLAC tools will not be able to decode them and seeking will not work as expected. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added support for mkvmerge's new support for reading chapters from DVDs if both have been built with the `libdvdread` library. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when deriving languages from file names the GUI will now look for simplified language names instead of the full ones (e.g. instead of looking for "Greek, Modern (1453-)" it would simply look for "Greek"). * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the options in the "additional command-line options" dialog are now sorted alphabetically. Additionally the `--append-mode` option has been added as one of the only missing global options. * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: the chapter editor can now read chapters from DVDs if MKVToolNix has been built with the `libdvdread` library. * MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: added an option in the preferences for displaying all date & time values in UTC instead of the local time zone. Bug fixes: * all: fixed a crash when using the `MTX_LOGGER=file` syntax for logging debug messages without specifying a file name to log to. It will now log to a file called `mkvtoolnix-debug.log` in the system's default temporary directory, as initially intended. Build system changes: * The `libdvdread` library will be used if found via `pkg-config`. If it is found, support for reading chapters from DVDs will be enabled in `mkvmerge` and the MKVToolNix GUI. * Boost's Date/Time, Lexical Cast, Range, Range Adaptors, Tri-Bool, Variant libraries are not used anymore. * MKVToolNix now requires a C++ compiler & standard library that support the following features of the C++17 standard: "`std::variant`", "`std::gcd`". For the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) this means v7 or newer; for clang it means v4 or newer — the same versions required by earlier MKVToolNix versions. * MKVToolNix now requires version 6.1.0 of fmtlib or later for the `fmt::to_string` function and bugfixes to the formatting of floating point numbers. If a system-wide version is installed that's older, the bundled copy will be used. * Fri May 01 2020 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 46.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: when splitting, the placeholder `%c` can be used in the destination file name. It'll be replaced by the name of the first chapter in the file. Implements #2791. * mkvmerge: when reading MPLS playlists mkvmerge will include a tag named `SOURCE_ID` in the track's statistics tags that conveys the fact that the source was a Blu-ray and what the track's ID was in the source container. When reading Matroska file existing `SOURCE_ID` tags will be kept. The format used is the same format MakeMKV uses. Implements #2774. * mkvmerge: for audio-only files mkvmerge will now write a cue entry every 500ms instead of every 2s. * MKVToolNix GUI: job actions: split up the option "execute when the job finishes successfully or with warnings" into two separate options: "…when finishes successfully" and "…when exits with warnings". Implements #2798. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: Matroska reader: when regenerating UIDs for chapters mkvmerge will now fix referencing tag chapter UID targets to have the same values. Fixes #2804. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed a crash that could potentially happen while trying to identify H.265/HEVC tracks. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: when reading H.265/HEVC tracks without a frame offset table (`ctts` atom) present, mkvmerge did not parse the `hevcC` structure correctly in certain cases, causing no video frames to be output at all or the output not being playable. This fixes #2782, a bug introduced in v45. * mkvmerge: MPLS handling/MPEG TS reader: timestamp restrictions as given in an MPLS file were only honored for the first play item, not for subsequent play items. For those play items the whole referenced file was always copied. Part of the fix of #2789. * mkvmerge: MPLS handling/MPEG TS reader: under certain circumstances mkvmerge copied one frame too many before switching to the next play item. Part of the fix of #2789. * mkvmerge: for audio-only files cues will only be created for I frames (important for e.g. TrueHD where decoding can only start on a sync frame). Fixes #2790. * MKVToolNix GUI: fixed a crash that happened when closing the preferences after having closed at least one multiplexer tab. Fixes #2785. * Sat Apr 04 2020 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 45.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: mkvmerge has never supported appending & splitting FLAC audio tracks. mkvmerge will now emit error messages when the user attempts either instead of continuing and creating invalid FLAC tracks. * MKVToolNix GUI: added an option in the preferences to turn on eliding text on tab headers. If enabled, tab names will be shortened so that all tab headers fit into the window's width. Implements #2768. * MKVToolNix GUI: added an option in the preferences to disable all tooltips. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: if the file identification fails due to a JSON parser error, the output generated by `mkvmerge` will be output to `STDERR` allowing insight into what's gone wrong. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: if an error occurs during file identification, the name of the processed file will be mentioned in the error message. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: if an error occurs during identification of multiple files, the GUI will ask the user whether to continue or abort the identification process. Implements #2778. * MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: added an option in the preferences for removing completed jobs when exiting the program depending on their status. Implements #2769. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: H.265/HEVC packetizer: fixed changing the NALU size length, it was using the wrong offset into the `hevcC` structure. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed calculating the duration of video tracks that only contain a single frame. Fixes #2747. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: if there's no frame offset table (`ctts` atom) present for H.265/HEVC video tracks, mkvmerge will determine the timestamp order itself instead of relying on the timestamps in the MP4 being in the presentation order required by Matroska. Fixes #2777. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when using the title as part of the destination file name (both automatically as well as using the "copy title to destination file name" function) all characters that aren't valid in a file name are replaced by hyphens. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the "copy title to destination file name" function was broken when the "make file name unique" option in the preferences was disabled. In that case the file base name was removed regardless of what the title was set to at the time. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding Blu-ray playlists the GUI used to only look for the English version of the disc library information (title & cover images). Now the GUI will present all disc library entries in the "select playlist to add" dialog & let the user chose which one to use (if any). Fixes #2765. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer, info tool: fixed the "warn before overwriting" check wrt. jobs creating the same file. Fixes #2758. * Mon Mar 09 2020 firstname.lastname@example.org - Update to version 44.0.0 New features and enhancements: * MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: the attachments can now be reordered via drag & drop. Implements #2753. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: Matroska reader: when encountering certain errors in the track headers such as the codec ID not being present mkvmerge will simply skip those tracks instead of exiting with an error. Fixes #2737. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the "ask before overwriting" functionality did not look for the correct file names when splitting was active. Fixes #2741. * Mon Jan 27 2020 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 43.0.0 New features and enhancements: * MKVToolNix GUI: using one of the command line options `--info`, `--edit-headers` or `--edit-chapters` will make the GUI select the corresponding tool on startup even if no further file name is given. Implements #2723. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added a setting in the preferences for changing the location of the MediaInfo executable for when the user accidentally selected the wrong one. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: AVC/h.264 parser: the order of the NALUs before each key frame was sometimes wrong: mkvmerge wrote SPS & PPS after SEI NALUs. Now SPS & PPS NALUs are always written before the other NALUs. Patch by Torsten Hauska. Part of the implementation of #2709 and part of the fix of #2250. * mkvmerge: AVC/h.264 parser: when additional SPS or PPS NALUs (with IDs that haven't been seen so far) are found mid-stream, mkvmerge will prepend all following key frames with all current valid SPS & PPS NALUs (just like when SPS & PPS NALUs are overwritten mid-stream). Part of the fix of [#2250]. * mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: fixed detection of MPEG-1/2 video tracks consisting of very few frames. Fixes #2732. * mkvmerge: Ogg Opus reader: fixed the handling of Ogg Opus streams that contain a just one Ogg page (`mkvmerge` aborted with an exception). Fixes #2722. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: dragging & dropping XML files with chapters or tags to the GUI's window was broken in v42. Instead of adding the file names to the appropriate input boxes the GUI was running mkvmerge for file identification purposes which then failed. Fixes #2718. * Thu Jan 02 2020 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 42.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: added an option for creating byte-identical files: `--deterministic <seed>`. Part of the implementation of [#2698]. * mkvmerge: Matroska reader: mkvmerge will remove the `icpf` atom headers if they're present in frames read from Matroska files. Implements #2692. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: ALAC tracks: the number of channels, sampling frequency and bit depth are now taken from the bitstream in order to fix bogus values on the container level. Implements #2714. * mkvpropedit: when changing track UIDs the referring elements in existing chapters & tags will be updated automatically, too. Part of the implementation of #2700. * mkvinfo: when the option `-p`/`--hex-positions` is used, element positions will be output regardless of the verbosity level. Part of the implementation of #2713. * mkvinfo: added the option `-P`/`--positions` for showing the position of each element in decimal regardless of the verbosity level used. Part of the implementation of #2713. * mkvinfo: added the option `-o`/`--continue` for continuing processing when the first cluster is encountered regardless of the verbosity level used. Part of the implementation of [#2713]. * mkvinfo: added the option `-a`/`--all` for outputting all sub-elements (even cues & seek head entries) and not stopping at the first cluster regardless of the verbosity level used. Part of the implementation of #2713. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added an option in the preferences for disabling adding cover images from Blu-ray discs. Implements #2693. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added mkvmerge's new `--deterministic` option in the "additional command-line options" dialog. Part of the implementation of #2698. * MKVToolNix GUI: header editor:: when changing track UIDs the referring elements in existing chapters & tags will be updated automatically, too. Part of the implementation of [#2700]. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: HEVC ES parser: fixed a bug in the slice parser calculating the size of a field which in turn could have led to the slice's type being read wrong. Patch by Torsten Hauska. Fixes #2710. * mkvmerge: Matroska reader: fixed a segmentation fault when trying to read a file that uses header removal compression but no removed bytes are present in the track headers. Fixes [#2687]. * mkvmerge: MPEG elementary stream parser: fixed an invalid memory access and use of uninitialized memory that could happen under certain circumstances. Fixes #2690. * mkvmerge: RealMedia reader: fixed a division by zero when all audio timestamps were zero. Fixes #2689. * mkvmerge: RealMedia reader: fixed an invalid memory access in the video frame assembly code triggered by invalid data in the file. Fixes #2691. Build system changes: * `std::optional` (C++17 feature) is now used instead of `boost::optional`. * `std::regex` is now used instead of `boost::regex`. Other changes: * New man page translations into French, Italian, Russian and Chinese Traditional have been added. * Fri Dec 06 2019 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 41.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: Matroska reader: Vorbis tracks: stream comments (aka Vorbis comments) will be converted to Matroska attachments (for cover arts) and Matroska track tags (for other comments). Additionally the stream comments will be removed from Vorbis headers. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: added support for reading Opus audio from MP4 files. Part of the implementation of #2673. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: added support for reading VP9 video from MP4 files. Part of the implementation of #2673. * mkvmerge: Ogg reader: Vorbis, Opus & VP8 streams: stream comments (aka Vorbis comments) will be converted to Matroska attachments (for cover arts) and Matroska track tags (for other comments). Additionally the stream comments will be removed from Vorbis headers. * mkvmerge: WAV reader: added support for reading RF64 files. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the list of predefined track names is now split up into three lists, one for each track type (audio, video & subtitles). Part of the implementation of #2654. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when trying to add thumbnails for a Blu-ray the GUI will determine the thumbnail's pixel size from the thumbnail files if the XML file doesn't contain that information. This works for JPEG and PNG files. Implements #2674. * MKVToolNix GUI: general: line edits & combo boxes will now have a "clear text" button appear whenever they're not empty. Part of the implementation of #2654. * MKVToolNix GUI: update check: the dialog showing the latest news & version information states explicitly where the links take the user (the MKVToolNix `NEWS.md` file and YouTube respectively). Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: Matroska reader: mkvmerge did not copy the codec's private data when reading WavPack from Matroska files. Fixes [#2685]. * mkvmerge: MPLS handling: re-added caching when using MPLS playlists as input files. Fixes #2666. * mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: when reading an MPLS playlist, the calculation of the minimum timestamp to use for shifting all output timestamps to zero was wrong. It was wrongfully considering timestamps from packets it would not copy due to the MPLS's timestamp restrictions. This could lead to the first timestamps in the output file being quite large, e.g. more than a couple of minutes, causing sync problems when multiplexing together with other files. Fixes #2670. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the automatic switch between aspect ratio & display width/height wasn't reflected in the configuration generated for `mkvmerge`. The user had to change between the two settings manually. Fixes #2660. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the progress dialog shown when scanning a Blu-ray wasn't closed properly in certain situations. Fixes #2678. * MKVToolNix GUI: general: the configured font was not applied to a lot of controls (e.g. the file & track lists or the menu entries) on application startup. Instead the user had to open & close the preferences in order for the font to be applied to all controls. Fixes #2671. * Sat Nov 09 2019 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 40.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: added support for BMP covert art images. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added an option to disable deriving the destination file name from the file title. Implements #2648. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the content of the "stereoscopy" combo box has been simplified making the box's minimum width much smaller, allowing the user to resize the GUI's whole window to a much smaller width. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: whenever the user changes the "aspect ratio" or "display dimensions" controls, the corresponding radio button will be activated automatically. Implements #2651. * MKVToolNix GUI: Windows: added a setting in the preferences to disable the GUI's dark color mode even if Windows's app color mode is set to dark. Implements #2646. * MKVToolNix GUI: Windows: replaced the dark mode introduced in v39 with another dark mode that's less wasteful with space between widgets. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: mkvmerge was reading eight bytes too many for cover art images. This could cause file identification to fail when the cover art was located at the end of the MP4 file. Even if it succeeded, this meant too much data present in the attachment. Fixes #2650. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: covert art images with unknown image types will be skipped instead of treated as JPEG images. Build system changes: * Qt 5.9.0 or newer is now required for building MKVToolNix GUI. * Tue Nov 05 2019 Luigi Baldoni <email@example.com> - Update to version 39.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: Blu-ray: when reading an MPLS playlist mkvmerge will look up and use chapter names from the Blu-ray's "track/chapter names" meta data if it exists. Part of the implementation of 2486. * mkvmerge: MP4 reader: if present, cover art images (the `meta.udta.ilist.covr` atom) will be converted into attachments. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding a playlist from a Blu-ray disc, the disc library meta data will be parsed, and the biggest thumbnail, if present, will be added as a new attachment with name `cover.jpg` (extension depends on thumbnail's extension). Implements #2644. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding a playlist from a Blu-ray disc, the title from the disc library meta data will be set as the new file title if the disc library meta data contains one & no title has been set yet. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the automatically generated destination file name will now be based on the file title if one is set at that point. This works in conjunction with the title being said from the Blu-ray disc library meta data. * MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: when reading chapters from an MPLS playlist the GUI will look up and use chapter names from the Blu-ray's "track/chapter names" meta data if it exists. Part of the implementation of 2486. * MKVToolNix GUI: Windows: added a dark mode that's enabled when Windows 10's dark mode is turned on. * translations: added a Bulgarian translation of the programs & the man pages by Симеон Цветков (see `AUTHORS`). Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: attachments without a file name won't be ignored anymore. Part of the fix of #2642. * MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: attachments with an empty name element will be shown as `<unnamed>` as originally intended. Part of the fix of #2642. * Linux AppImage: the AppImage will no longer change directories before running the desired executable allow the use of relative file names. Fixes #2632. Build system changes: * MKVToolNix now requires a C++ compiler that supports the following features of the C++17 standard: "`[[maybe_unused]]` attribute", "nested namespace definition", "structured bindings". For the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) this means v7 or newer; for clang it means v4 or newer. * Boost 1.60.0 or newer is now required. - Use system nlohmann-json - Spec cleanup * Sun Oct 06 2019 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 38.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvextract: chapters, tags & cue sheets will now be written to standard output if no file name is given, same as if `-` is given as the file name. * MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: added a new setting in the preferences' "job queue & job status" section that, when enabled, will cause the GUI to remove all output files created by jobs that are either aborted by the user or that end in an error. Implements #2614. Bug fixes: * all programs: macOS: fixed file access if the file name (including all path components) contains any Unicode character where NFC (Normalization Form Canonical Composed) and NFD (Normalization Form Canonical Decomposed) differ, e.g. German Umlauts. Fixes #2620. * mkvmerge: when splitting by chapters the user can now split by chapters coming from one of the appended files, too. Fixes #2625. * mkvmerge: AAC reader: fixed reading codec parameters (channels, sample rate) if a file starts with garbage that includes valid-but-bogus AAC headers. Fixes #2622. * MKVToolNix GUI: Hebrew was added to the list of often-used languages so that it can be selected by default again. Fixes [#2610]. * MKVToolNix GUI: when updating the GUI's settings from v37.0.0 or older, the GUI checks if the list of often-used languages equals the built-in list from v36.0.0. If it does, it will be updated to the built-in list changed in v37.0.0. Fixes #2611. Build system changes: * Boost's Operators header library is now required. * Mon Sep 02 2019 Ismail Dönmez <email@example.com> - Update to version 37.0.0 New features and enchancements: * MKVToolNix GUI: the list of often used languages now contains those from Wikipedia's "List of languages by native speakers" by default. Also by default only those languages will be shown in the language drop-down boxes. * mkvmerge: mkvmerge now allows appending AV1, VP8, VP9, H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC tracks whose pixel dimensions differ. Implements #2582. Bug fixes: * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: fixed a bug in the "make destination file names unique" logic that caused an existing number-in-parenthesis at the end of the file base name to be removed in certain situations (e.g. when the first added file was named `m (3).mkv` and both `m (3) (1).mkv` and `m (3) (2).mkv` existed already, the GUI was suddenly use `m.mkv` instead of `m (3) (3).mkv`). * MKVToolNix GUI: on Windows the GUI is built with a slightly older version of the Qt library again (5.12.4). The Qt version used in release v36.0.0, v5.13.0, lead to crashes when doing certain things such as selecting multiple tracks in the multiplexer. Fixes #2605 and #26008. * source code: fixed building with Boost 1.71.0. Fixes #2599. * all: fixed the spelling of the H.264 & H.265 codec names. * mkvmerge: Blu-ray MPLS handling: mkvmerge will now find corresponding M2TS files even if the `clip_codec_identifier` playlist item field is not set to `M2TS` in the MPLS file. Fixes #2601. * mkvmerge: fixed handling of text files that use both DOS-style and Unix-style line endings resulting in problems such as text subtitle files not being parsed correctly. Fixes #2594. * Wed Jun 26 2019 Luigi Baldoni <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 35.0.0 New features and enhancements: * mkvmerge: JSON identification: the "codec name" track property will be output as `codec_name`. The JSON schema has been bumped to v12 for this change. * MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: added a new type of action to execute after job completion: deleting source files for of multiplexer jobs. As this is a destructive operation, the action is disabled by default. Implements #869 and #2570. Bug fixes: * mkvmerge: the "codec name" track property wasn't copied from Matroska files. Fixes #2566. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: Windows: clearing the destination file name will reset the tab name to "\<No destination file\>" again. Fixes #2571. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the file types were not re-translated if the UI language was changed. Fixes #2572. * Fri Jun 07 2019 Ferdinand Thiessen <email@example.com> - Update to version 34.0.0: * mkvmerge: bugfix: all subtitle frames are now treated as key frames in order to fix wrong data in source files. bugfix: AV1: fixed frame timestamp calculation when reading bitstreams that lack timing information from IVF files. bugfix: Matroska reader: fixed an infinite loop that could happen with large video frames and applied timestamp files due to too much data being buffered at the wrong time. * Tue Apr 16 2019 Ferdinand Thiessen <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 33.1.0: * Build with stack protection - Update to version 33.0.0: * mkvinfo: bugfix: when using the `--size` option, mkvinfo will now report the correctly if an element has an unknown size. * MKVToolNix GUI: bugfix: info tool: clusters with an unknown size will now be read and displayed correctly. bugfix: multiplexer: if a destination file names ends with a number in parenthesis (e.g. a year such as "(2017)"), that number will not be stripped anymore during the process of ensuring the destination file name is unique. Only those suffixes added automatically in prior attempts to make the file name unique will be removed. - Update to version 32.0.0: * mkvinfo: new feature: when sizes are output the size of the element's data portion is output in addition to the element's total size. * MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: info tool: the element's data portion is shown as an extra column. new feature: multiplexer: added column "Delay" to the track list containing the additional delay to apply during multiplexing. bugfix: the portable mode wasn't detected correctly when the current working directory the GUI was started from wasn't the directory the GUI's executable file was located it. bugfix: multiplexer: using button to change the current destination directory to one of the recently used ones did not update the file name according to the "make file name unique" setting. bugfix: multiplexer: the function "set destination file name from selected file's name" will now only change the destination file's name but not its path. * all: fixed handling of Unicode code points > U+FFFF. - Update to version 31.0.0: * all programs: New Feature: 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: New Feature: when closing files that were opened for writing, cached data will not be flushed to storage automatically anymore. A new option was added to both programs (`--flush-on-close`) that re-enables flushing for people who are affected by data loss. 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. Bugfix: AVI reader: using DV type 1 AVIs will now result in an unsupported file type being reported instead of crashing mkvmerge Bugfix: 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. Bugfix: 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. Bugfix: 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: New Feature: multiplexer: the dialog previewing different character sets for text subtitles will now keep the position of the displayed text when switching between character sets. Bugfix: multiplexer, chapter editor: fixed drag & drop handling with Qt 5.12.0 and newer. Bugfix: multiplexer: the GUI did not clean up temporary files created when running `mkvmerge`. * Tue Mar 19 2019 plater <email@example.com> - Fix Factory build by changing rubygem-rake build requirement to rubygem(rake) and adding libboost_system build dependency again, fixes boo#1129626 * Mon Jan 14 2019 Martin Pluskal <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Drop libboost_system dependency as it is not needed * Sat Jan 12 2019 Ferdinand Thiessen <email@example.com> - Update to version 30.1.0: * MKVToolNix GUI: bugfix: 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. - Update to version 30.0.0: * MKVToolNix GUI: New Feature: 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. New Feature: 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. New Feature: The predefined split sizes and durations can now be customized in the preferences. New Feature: chapter editor: added an option in the "Chapter editor" menu for appending chapters from an existing file to the currently open editor tab. New Feature: Added an action in the context menu for copying the selected entry and all of its children to another open editor tab. Bugfix: removing a file added as an "additional part" will no longer cause a crash. * mkvextract: New Feature: 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. * mkvmerge: Bugfix: 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. Bugfix: AAC: under certain conditions 8 channel audio files were taken for 7 channel ones. - Update to version 29.0.0: * MKVToolNix GUI: New Feature: added an option in the preferences for disabling automatic scaling for high DPI displays. New Feature: The GUI will now prevent the system from going to sleep while the job queue is running. * mkvmerge: Bugfix: chapter generation: the start timestamps of chapters generated in intervals was wrong for files whose smallest video timestamp was bigger than 0. Bugfix: MP4 reader: fixed handling of atoms whose size exceeds the parent atom's size. Bugfix: the chapter name template will now also be used when reading Ogg-style chapter files with empty chapter names. * mkvextract: Bugfix: 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: Bugfix: 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. * Tue Oct 30 2018 Ferdinand Thiessen <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Update to version 28.2.0 * mkvmerge, mkvinfo, mkvextract, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's info tool & chapter editor: fixed a case of memory being accessed after it had been freed earlier. This can be triggered by specially crafted Matroska files and lead to arbitrary code execution. The vulnerability was reported as Cisco TALOS 2018-0694 on 2018-10-25 (CVE-2018-4022). Fixes boo#1113709. - Update to version 28.1.0 * mkvmerge: bugfix: AV1 parser: fixed an error in the sequence header parser if neither the `reduced_still_picture_header` nor the `frame_id_numbers_present_flag` is set. bugfix: AV1 parser: when creating the `av1C` structure for the Codec Private element the sequence header OBU wasn't copied completely: its common data (type field & OBU size among others) was missing. bugfix: Matroska reader, AV1: mkvmerge will try to re-create the `av1C` data stored in Codec Private when reading AV1 from Matroska or WebM files created by mkvmerge v28.0.0. * MKVToolNix GUI: bugfix info tool: the tool will no longer stop scanning elements when an EBML Void element is found after the first Cluster element. - Update to version 28.0.0 * mkvmerge: New feature: AV1 parser: updated the code for the finalized AV1 bitstream specification. New feature: AV1 packetizer: updated the code for the finalized AV1-in-Matroska & WebM mapping specification. New feature: AV1 support: the `--engage enable_av1` option has been removed again. New feature: MP4 reader: added support for AV1. New feature: DTS: implemented dialog normalization gain removal for extension substreams. New feature: VP9: mkvmerge will now create codec private data according to the VP9 codec mapping described in the WebM specifications. bugfix: JSON identification: fixed a bug when removing invalid UTF-8 data from strings before they're output as JSON. bugfix: MP4/QuickTime reader: fixed handling of PCM audio with FourCC `in24`. bugfix: 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. * mkvmerge, mkvextract: New feature: simple text subtitles: added a workaround for simple text subtitle tracks that don't contain a duration. * mkvextract: New feature: added support for extracting AV1 to IVF. New feature: 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. * MKVToolNix GUI: New feature: automatic scaling for high DPI displays is activated if the GUI is compiled with Qt ≥ 5.6.0. New feature: added a menu item ("Help" → "System information") for displaying information about the system MKVToolNix is running on in order to make debugging easier. New feature: 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. * mkvextract: bugfix: 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: bugfix: 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 already. * Thu Oct 18 2018 Ferdinand Thiessen <email@example.com> - Update to version 27.0.0: * mkvmerge: New feature: 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. Bugfix: 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: New feature: multiplexer: adjusted & added controls for mkvmerge's new feature of being able to adjust chapter timestamps. New feature: 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. Bugfix: fixed a leak of Windows font resources leading to a general slowdown and subsequent crash. - Update to version 26.0.0: * mkvmerge: New feature: chapter generation: if the name template given by `--generate-chapters-name-template` is empty, no names will be generated for the chapter atoms. New feature: chapters: chapter names generated from MPLS files will now use the name template if one is set via `--generate-chapters-name-template`. New feature: 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. Bugfix: Matroska reader: fixed wrong timestamps when appending Matroska files where the second Matroska file's first timestamp is bigger than 0. Bugfix: MP4 reader: fixed division by zero errors during file identification if the timescale is 0 in the `MVHD` atom. Bugfix: 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: New feature: the font size in the tool selector on the left will scale with the font size the user selects in the preferences. New feature: 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. New feature: 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. New feature: chapter editor: if the chapter name template is empty, chapters will be generated without names. New feature: chapter editor: added an option to remove all chapter names to the "additional modifications" dialog. Bugfix: info tool: under certain circumstances "cues" were shown at the wrong level (inside the previous master element instead of on lvel 1). Bugfix: job queue: fixed invalid memory handling and consequent crashes when using the "edit in corresponding tool & remove from job queue" option if one of the files in that job contained attached files. * Wed Aug 08 2018 firstname.lastname@example.org - Update to 25.0.0: * mkvextract: New feature: VobSub extraction: empty SPU packets will now be dropped during extraction as other tools such as MP4Box cannot handle them correctly. Bugfix: fixed a crash when mkvextract with a non-Matroska file as the source file. * MKVToolNix GUI: New feature:: multiplexer: added options to only enable tracks of certain types by default. New feature: multiplexer: added an option to enable dialog normalization gain removal by default for all audio tracks for which the operation is supported. New feature: multiplexer: when deriving track languages from the file names is active and the file name contains the usual season/episode pattern, then only the part after the season/episode pattern will be used for detecting the language. New feature: multiplexer: the regular expression used for deriving track languages from the file names can now be customized in the preferences. New feature: 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. Bugfix: multiplexer: when scanning playlists, all playlists were offered for selection regardless of the value of the "minimum playlist duration" setting. Bugfix: 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. Bugfix: header editor: fixed a crash when saving the file fails (e.g. because it isn't writable). Bugfix: header editor: the editor was wrongfully claiming that mandatory elements with default values cannot be removed in the "status" text. Bugfix: preferences: on macOS & Linux the setting "enable copying tracks by their type" wasn't restored on program start. Bugfix: the central area is now scrollable, allowing the GUI to be resized to almost arbitrary sizes. Bugfix: multiplexer: the "copy file title to destination file name" functionality will now replace everything in the destination file name up to the last period instead of only up to the first period. * mkvmerge: New feature: 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. New feature: 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. New Feature: Matroska & MPEG transport stream readers: the encoding of text subtitles read from Matroska files can now be changed with the '--sub-charset' parameter. New feature: 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. New feature: 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. New feature: AVC/h.264: empty NALUs will now be removed. New feature: input: format detection uses file-extension to improve performance and to give preference when several formats match. New feature: AV1: added support for reading AV1 video from Open Bitstream Unit files. New feature: AV1: adjusted the code for the AV1 bitstream format changes made up to 2018-05-02 (git revision d14e878). New feature: 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. Bugfix: AVC/h.264 and HEVC: fixed file identification failing for certain elementary streams due to internal buffers not being cleared properly. Bugfix: MLP code: fixed various issues preventing MLP from being parsed correctly. Bugfix: 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. Bugfix: 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. Bugfix: 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. Bugfix: audio packetizers: mkvmerge will now keep discard padding values if they're present for packets read from Matroska files. Bugfix: 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). Bugfix: E-AC-3 parser: fixed determining the number of channels for streams that contain an AC-3 core with dependent E-AC-3 frames. Bugfix: Matroska reader: fixed mkvmerge buffering the whole file if a video track is multiplexed that consists of only one or a few frames. Bugfix: the "display unit" video track property will now be kept if it is set in the source file. Bugfix: MP3 packetizer: removed a memory leak growing linearly with the track's size. Bugfix: VobSub packetizer: whenever a VobSub packet doesn't contain a duration on the container level, mkvmerge will now set it from the duration in the SPU packets. Before it was accidentally setting the SPU-level duration to 0 instead. Bugfix: track statistics tags: if writing the `Date` element is deactivated via `--no-date`, the `_STATISTICS_WRITING_DATE_UTC` isn't written either anymore. Bugfix: removed several small, constant-size memory leaks. * Mon Apr 09 2018 email@example.com - Update to 22.0.0: * mkvmerge: New feature: AC-3, DTS, TrueHD: added an option for removing/minimizing the dialog normalization gain for all supported types of the mentioned codecs. New feature: AV1: added support for reading AV1 video from IVF, WebM and Matroska files. New feature: FLAC: mkvmerge can now ignore ID3 tags in FLAC files which would otherwise prevent mkvmerge from detecting the file type. Bugfix: MP4 reader: fixed reading the ESDS audio header atom if it is located inside a "wave" atom inside the "stsd" atom. Bugfix: MP4 reader: AAC audio tracks signalling eight channels in the track headers but only seven in the codec-specific configuration will be treated as having eight channels. Bugfix: MPEG TS reader: fixed wrong handling of the continuity counter for TS packets that signal that TS payload is present but where the adaptation field spans the whole TS packet. Bugfix: the 'document type version' and 'document type read version' header fields are now set depending on which elements are actually written, not on which features are active. Bugfix: the 'document type version' header field is now set to 4 correctly if any of the version 4 Matroska elements is written. * mkvinfo: New Feature: the size and positions of frames within "SimpleBlock" and "BlockGroup" elements are now shown the same way they're shown for other elements. Bugfix: summary mode: the file positions reported for frames in `BlockGroup` elements did not take the bytes used for information such as timestamp, track number flags or lace sizes into account. They were therefore too low. * mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI header editor: the 'document type version' and 'document type read version' header fields are now updated if elements written by the changes require higher version numbers. Bugfix: mandatory elements can now be deleted if there's a default value for them in the specifications. * MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added options for deriving the track languages from the file name by searching for ISO 639-1/639-2 language codes or language names enclosed in non-word, non-space characters. Bugfix: info tool: implemented reading all elements in the file after the first cluster. Only top-level elements are shown; child elements are only loaded on demand. Bugfix: info tool: added a context menu with the option to show a hex dump of the element with the bytes making up the EBML ID and the size portion highlighted in different colors. In-depth highlighting is done for the data in `SimpleBlock` and `Block` elements. Bugfix: chapter editor: added an option to remove all end timestamps to the "additional modifications" dialog. - Update to 21.0.0: * mkvinfo: the GUI portion has been removed. mkvinfo is now a pure command-line program again. * mkvmerge: New feature: track statistics tags: the `TagDefault` element will not be written anymore as it was always set to the default value `1` anyway. New feature: JSON files can now contain C++-style line comments outside of strings. Such comments, even though not part of the official JSON specifications, are now ignored when reading JSON files. Bugfix: Appending files with additional parts at the same time was broken if more than one additional part was appended. Bugfix: FLV reader: a single invalid AAC frame was written for AAC audio tracks with codec initialization data longer than five bytes. Bugfix: FLV reader: timestamps will be normalized down to 0. Bugfix: MP4 reader: if an AAC track doesn't contain an AAC-specific decoder configuration in the ESDS portion, then a default decoder configuration will be generated based on the track's header data instead of skipping the track. Bugfix: MP4 reader: fixed reading HEVC/h.265 video tracks if they're stored as Annex B byte streams inside MP4. Bugfix: Ogg Opus reader: mkvmerge will now emit a warning instead of aborting when it encounters an Ogg Opus page with no data in the packet. Bugfix: Matroska parser: fixed a segmentation fault that occurred whenever the first level 1 element after resyncing after an error in the file structure isn't a cluster. Bugfix: fixed a crash during file type detection for attachments if MKVToolNix is installed in a path with non-ASCII characters (e.g. German Umlauts). * MKVToolNix GUI: New Feature: chapter editor: opening a Matroska file without chapters in it will now open the file in an empty chapter editor instead of showing an error message. New Feature: an "info" tool has been added, replacing the functionality of mkvinfo's GUI. The functionality is not on par yet but will be for release v22. Bugfix: MKVToolNix GUI: Bugfix: multiplexer: the subtitle character set can now be set for appended subtitle files, too. Bugfix: MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when appending, all tracks appended to disabled tracks will start out disabled, too. * mkvinfo: the `--hex-positions` parameter did nothing in summary mode. Bugfix: mkvinfo: Windows: line endings will be written as `\r\n` again instead of just `\n`. * mkvpropedit: Bugfix: adding track statistics tags: for tracks with content encoding (compression) mkvpropedit is now accounting the uncompressed number of bytes, not the encoded (compressed) number of bytes. * Sun Jan 21 2018 firstname.lastname@example.org - Update to 20.0.0: * Feature removal: several deprecated features have been removed: mkvmerge: the deprecated options `--identify-verbose`, `--identify-for-gui`, `--identify-for-mmg` and `--identification-format verbose-text` all command line tools: support for the deprecated, old, proprietary format used for option files all command line tools: support for passing command line options via the deprecated environment variables `MKVTOOLNIX_OPTIONS`, `MKVEXTRACT_OPTIONS`, `MKVINFO_OPTIONS`, `MKVMERGE_OPTIONS` and `MKVPROPEDIT_OPTIONS` * mkvmerge: AVC/h.264 packetizer (framed): access unit delimiter NALUs will now be removed. bugfix: AVC/h.264 parser: when fixing the bitstream timing information mkvmerge will now use exact representations of the desired field duration if possible. bugfix: AVC/h.264 parser: mkvmerge no longer assumes that encountering sequence parameter set or picture parameter set NALUs signal the start of a new frame. bugfix: AVC/h.264 packetizer (framed): when mkvmerge is told to fix the bitstream timing information, it will now update all SPS NALUs, not just the ones in the AVCC. bugfix: MPEG TS reader: TS packet payloads will only be treated as PES packets if the payload actually starts with a PES start code. The prior behavior led to wrong timestamps and potentially broken frame data. bugfix: MPEG TS reader: mkvmerge will now drop incomplete PES packets as soon as an error is detected in the transport stream instead of passing the incomplete frame to the packetizer. An error is assumed either if the `transport_error_indicator` flag is set or if the value of the `continuity_counter` header field doesn't match the expected value. bugfix: Opus: when re-muxing Opus from Matroska mkvmerge will now write "block duration" elements for all block groups where a "discard padding" is set, too. bugfix: SRT reader: mkvmerge can now handle SRT files with timestamps without decimal places. bugfix: read buffer I/O class: the class could get out of sync regarding the file position of the underlying file I/O class causing wrong data to be returned on subsequent read operations. One result was that trying to identifying MPLS files that refer to very short M2TS files caused mkvmerge to segfault. bugfix: multiplexer core: if there's a gap in audio timestamps, a new block group/lace will be started for the first frame after each gap. Before the fix the frame after the gap was often stored in the previous block group causing the gap to be in the wrong place: at the end of that block group. * mkvextract: bugfix: AVC/h.264: if two consecutive IDR frames with the same `idr_pic_id` parameter and no access unit delimiters are found between them, mkvextract will insert an access unit delimiter in order to signal the start of a new access unit. * MKVToolNix GUI: bugfix: update check dialog: Markdown links will now be converted to clickable links.
