Apparently, since 7.9, the new QT GUI is no longer a preview.[1]

It require QT>5.2 to build, and can be built along with the current wxgtk version. Is it possible to add it?

Thanks alot!

Well, since 8.3 we have this in changelog:

* build system: removal: the switch »--without-mkvtoolnix-gui« has
been removed. There are only two GUIs left in the package: the
Qt-enabled mkvinfo and MKVToolNix GUI. Both are enabled by default
and can be disabled with the option »--disable-qt«. In that case
only the text-mode version of mkvinfo is built, and the MKVToolNix
GUI is not built at all.

* Removal: all support for wxWidgets has been removed. This means
that the mkvmerge GUI (mmg) has been removed and that mkvinfo now
only supports a text-mode and a Qt-based interface.

Why hasn’t the PKGBUILD been updated accordingly?

Also, this is a very high priority and severity bug now, because the qt gui isn’t build and the wxgtk isn’t anymore, so that the package actually contains no GUI…
