FEDORA-2019-f643bb2602 created by rathann 10 months ago for Fedora 31

Version 40.0.0 "Old Town Road + Pony" 2019-11-09

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.

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.

Version 39.0.0 "In The Waiting Line" 2019-11-04

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 udta.meta.list.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.
  • 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.

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.
