MKVToolNix 12.0.0 was released a few days ago. It features one rather important bug fix in the HEVC/h.265 code that can result in invalid files. All users are recommended to upgrade.
MKVToolNix 12.0.0 new features:
- Ctrl+Shift+Space now toggle the selection of the current item in all tree views (multiple selections are allowed).
- chapter editor: added the extension `*.cue` (for cue sheet files) to the “open chapter file” dialog.
- When the CUE sheet includes a global title, it will be automatically used for the title tag when the
--titleoption is empty
- added an option `–no-date` that prevents the “date” field from being written to the segment information headers.
- header editor: added support for editing the “date” segment information field.
- Various bug fixes. See the release note.
