MKVToolNix 20.0 Open-Source MKV Manipulator Released with Important Changes

MKVToolNix 20.0 is an important release that comes with major changes at code and functionality end. These include the removal of numerous deprecated functions, implementation of the cmark library as a new requirement for package maintainers, and the complete rewrite of mkvinfo’s internals. In regards to the new cmark dependency, the developer noted the fact that GNU/Linux distributions must contain the cmark-devel package, which is available in RPM-based distros like Fedora, OpenSuSE, and CentOS, but not in Debian or Ubuntu. MKVToolNix needs both the cmark library and its headers.
