Linux News Today: MKVToolNix 8.9.0 MKV Manipulation Tool Has a Lot of Bug Fixes and Enhancements
MKVToolNix developer Moritz Bunkus recently released a new version of his popular MKVToolNix open-source and cross-platform MKV (Matroska) manipulation tool for all supported operating systems.
It has been a little over one month since the release of the previous maintenance build of MKVToolNix, and the 8.9.0 version brings a lot of bug fixes and enhancements, which promise to keep the application stable and reliable, as well as to add various new features here and there.
According to the release notes, MKVToolNix 8.9.0 contains numerous improvements to the GUI (Graphical User Interface), such as multiple enhancements to the header and chapter editors, deactivation of the default font size adjustment, and various small changes to the merge tool and job queue.
“Development speed has slowed down a little in the last couple of days. Nevertheless, today’s release v8.9.0 contains a lot of bug fixes and enhancements,” said Moritz Bunkus in the announcement. “There’s one small change for package maintainers: a Polish translation of the man pages has been added.”
