Linux News Today: MKVToolNix 9.2.0 MKV Manipulation Tool Brings Small Fixes and Improvements
Moritz Bunkus announced the second major release of his powerful and open source MKV (Matroska) manipulation utility for all supported operating systems, including Linux, Windows, and MacOS.
MKVToolNix 9.2.0 comes a little over a month since the release of MKVToolNix 9.1.0, but users should not expect any many new features, as the developer only had time to fix some of the issues that have been reported during this time. There is, however, an important change in the mkvinfo component, but it only affects those who use the software on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X platforms.
“One important change for Windows and Mac OS users of mkvinfo is that the change to start the GUI by default has been reverted. Instead a separate executable (mkvinfo-gui) is included for those platforms which starts the GUI by default. The newly introduced option –no-gui will remain valid but won’t have any effect when used with the “mkvinfo” executable,” said Moritz Bunkus in the announcement.
MKVToolNix 9.2.0 is now ready for download
As usual, we’ve attached the entire changelog of the new MKVToolNix release, so if you’re curious to know what issues have been addressed don’t hesitate to study the full release notes. Most of the fixes are for the MKVToolNix GUI, mkvmerge, and mkvinfo components. In the meantime, it is recommended that you download MKVToolNix 9.2.0 for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, or Microsoft Windows OSes.
Even if it doesn’t include major new features, MKVToolNix 9.2.0 is a worthy update, so we recommend that you apply it as soon as possible. If you’re using a GNU/Linux operating system, please check for the new version on the main software repositories of your distribution. We also have an in-depth review of MKVToolNix for those who are new to this software.
