# Version 73.0.0 "25 or 6 to 4" 2023-01-02

## New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: greatly enhanced the speed of Base64 decoding which is used used
  e.g. when reading pictures embedded in Ogg or FLAC files or for binary data
  inside XML chapter & tag files. Even small blocks of data could take
  unreasonably long.
* mkvmerge: added support for reading HEVC/H.265 video from FLV
  containers. Implements #3466.

## Bug fixes

* mkvmerge: splitting: fixed a typo in the string output in GUI mode regarding
  the timestamps before which splitting was done. See #3421.
* MKVToolNix GUI: job output: after having run multiple jobs the "Clear
  output" functionality only reset the visible parts. However, using the "save
  output" function would also save the output generated before the user used
  "clear output". Now only the output after the last use of "clear output" is
  saved. Fixes #3438.
* build system: when probing for the FLAC library the Ogg libraries will be
  linked with the compiled test program as well. This fixes detection if the
  `pkg-config` settings for FLAC don't list Ogg & the linker doesn't find the
  library automatically (e.g. for my macOS builds). Fixes #3439.
