FEDORA-2017-a9345080ed created by rathann 3 years ago for Fedora 26

Version 19.0.0 "Brave Captain" 2017-12-17

New features and enhancements

  • mkvmerge: splitting by duration, by timestamps or by timestamp-based parts: mkvmerge will now consider the first key frame within 1ms of the requested value to be eligible for splitting.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: the GUI will now save and restore the widths of columns in tree and list views. Implements #2057.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: when closing or reloading a modified file, the GUI will now focus the first element that's been modified before asking the user for confirmation regarding discarding unsaved changes.

Bug fixes

  • mkvmerge: fixed reading text files encoded in UTF-16 order UTF-32 that have different forms of line endings (new lines, carriage returns or a mix of both). Fixes #2160.
  • mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed mkvmerge's interpretation of edit list entries with segment_duration == 0 when there's more than one edit list entry. In that case mkvmerge was reading the whole content more than once. Fixes #2152.
  • mkvmerge, GUI's multiplexer: MIME types: added the font top-level media types from RFC 8081. This means that the following new MIME types for fonts can be used: font/ttf, font/otf, font/woff and font/woff2.
  • mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader: fixed slow speed on Windows due to lack of buffering.
  • mkvextract: fixed slow track extraction speed on Windows due to lack of buffering. Fixes #2166.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: changing the "subtitle/chapter character set" drop-down was ignored when the selected track was a chapter track. Fixes #2165.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: once a "subtitle/chapter character set" was set for a track it couldn't be changed back to the empty entry (= auto-detection) anymore.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: fixed re-translating several displayed strings when the GUI language is changed if the language the GUI was started with was not English. Fixes #2159.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: whenever a file did not contain a "date" element in its segment information section, the GUI would erroneously ask the user to confirm discarding unsaved changes when closing or reloading the tab. Fixes #2167.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: jobs are now saved when their status changes in addition to when the program exits. Fixes #2168.

Muxing and playback of muxed files working fine. Good thing to disable the online check for updates by default.
