GNU xorriso 1.1.6 released
be invited to try the release 1.1.6 of GNU xorriso, a ISO 9660 Rock Ridge
filesystem manipulator. Available on GNU FTP mirrors as
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
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 .
This release of GNU xorriso fixes bugs about processing of ACL and tries
to work around collision problems with udev on GNU/Linux.
* Bug fix: -extract_single extracted directory content
* Bug fix: -extract was not immediately aborted if -abort_on was triggered
* Bug fix: xorriso did not write to files in filesystems with >= 4 TB free space
* Bug fix: libisofs: ACL entries of groups and of user id 0 were not properly
recorded and cannot be restored
* Bug fix: libisofs: No ACLs were recorded on FreeBSD
* New option -list_extras
* New -osirrox option strict_acl
* libisofs: Enabled recording and restoring of extattr on FreeBSD.
* New -find and -findx action list_extattr
* Workaround for collision with Linux udev which lets device links vanish.
xorriso runs which use devce links like /dev/cdrw could abort after
successfully writing a session, because udev removed the link due to
inability to open the device file for examination.
- GNU/Linux: kernel 2.4 or 2.6, libc, libpthread
- FreeBSD : libc, libpthread, libiconv, IDE and SATA drives need atapicam
- Solaris : libc, libpthread
- 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-development

on GNU/Linux: libacl + libacl-development
If they were present at compile time, then the optional libraries have to
be present at runtime, too.
