dvd+rw-tools update [5.18, sudo, 5.19 to be released shortly]

dvd+rw-tools 5.18.x are available for download at usual location,
http://fy.chalmers.se/~appro/linux/DVD+RW/. Essentially 5.18 doesn't
address any issues, as the code was frozen for a period of quality
assurance test performed by HP. But there is an essential behavior
change in this update, namely growisofs refusing to start if executed
under sudo. Background for this decision is discussed in detail in
manual page.

As 5.18 was frozen for some time and bound to release on
http://www.software.hp.com/, accumulated issues, most notably failure to
verify write speed with Plextor PX-708A and NEC ND-2500, will be
addressed in upcoming 5.19.x, which will be released shortly. In other
words there hardly is a reason for community to upgrade to 5.18, just
wait for 5.19:-) A.
