Announcing xorriso-0.2.8


be invited to try the new release 0.2.8 of my program
xorriso, a ISO 9660 Rock Ridge filesystem manipulator.

It creates, loads, manipulates and writes ISO 9660
filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions. It 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 restore 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 or DVD but rather incorporates the
libraries of libburnia-project.org .


* Ability to write and maintain bootable ISO images based on ISOLINUX
* New ./configure option --disable-libreadline to make binary more portable
* Bug fix: -as mkisofs -iso-level was accused to be an unknown option
* Bug fix: -follow link attributed random target filenames to looping links

System requirements:
  Linux with kernel 2.4 or 2.6: libc, libpthread.

  libreadline + libreadline-dev

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:
(needs only vanilla tools for ./configure ; make)
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.

Post bug reports or requests
either to the libburnia ticket system:
or to one of these mailing lists:
or directly to me:

Have a nice day :)
