Announcing bug fix release xorriso-0.4.8.pl01
be invited to try the bug fix release 0.4.8.pl01 of my
program xorriso, a ISO 9660 Rock Ridge filesystem
It creates, loads, manipulates and writes ISO 9660
filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions. Optionally
it supports hard links, ACLs, xattr, and MD5 checksums.
xorriso can load the management information of existing
ISO images and it writes the session results to optical
media or to filesystem objects.
Vice versa xorriso is able to copy file objects from
ISO 9660 filesystems to disk.
A special property of xorriso is that it needs neither
an external ISO 9660 formatter program nor an external
burn program for CD, DVD or BD but rather incorporates
the libraries of libburnia-project.org .
* Bug fix:
Regression in libisofs introduced with xorriso-0.4.2
in August 2009:
-boot_image could lead to SIGSEGV.
- Linux : kernel 2.4 or 2.6, libc, libpthread
- FreeBSD : libc, libpthread, IDE and SATA drives need atapicam
- on other X/Open systems there will be no direct operation of
CD/DVD/BD drives, but only POSIX i/o which may or may not
be offered by the system for DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, or BD-RE.
libreadline + libreadline-dev
zlib + zlib-devel
on Linux: libacl + libacl-devel
If they were present at compile time, then the optional libraries have to
be present at runtime, too.
For more info, see http://scdbackup.sourceforge.net/xorriso_eng.html
There is a xorriso release tarball (containing the application
and all three libburnia libraries needed):
scdbackup.sourceforge.net is mirrored at scdbackup.webframe.org .
xorriso is also part of the libisoburn release tarball:
which is not directly affected by the bug.
The bug fix for dynamically linked xorriso is
libisoburn.so.1 and its xorriso need recent release
versions of libburn.so.4 and libisofs.so.6.
The xorriso standalone release does not depend on any
of these dynamic libraries.

Have a nice day :)
