cdrtools-2.01.01a59 ready



NEW features of cdrtools-2.01.01a59:

*******
NOTE: cdrtools is currently in a state just before a new major release.
	

*******


All:

-	Add -D_GNU_SOURCE to the standard include flags for Linux in order
	to unhide needed extensions.

-	Trying to add support for compilation on WIN64 using cl and gcc

-	Adding support for NT-6.0 (Win Vista) and NT-6.1 (Win 7)

-	Several typo corrections

-	New include file include/schily/wctype.h

-	New autoconf test that checks for the differences between the original
	iconv() implementation from Sun and the deviating POSIX standard.
	This allows to avoid compiler warning messages for mkisofs.

Libschily:

Libparanoia (Ported/enhanced by Jörg Schilling, originated by Monty xiphmont@mit.edu):

Libedc (Optimized by Jörg Schilling, originated by Heiko Eißfeldt heiko@hexco.de):

Libcdrdeflt:

Libdeflt:

Libfind:

Libfile:

Libhfs_iso:

Libsiconv:

-	Fixed a copy/paste error from libsiconv. Libsiconv now correctly
	initlizes duplicated data structures to prevent core dumps.
	Thanks to Jörg Sonnenberger for reporting.


Libscg:

Libscgcmd:

Rscsi:

Cdrecord:

-	Better error messages when the media size is unknown

-	Try to work around a firmware bug in the drive:
	'HL-DT-ST' 'DVD-RAM GH22NP20' '1.02'
	that is in effect with DVD+R media.

	***** ATTENTION *****

	The algorith to fetch the size information from a DVD+R/RW medium was changed with this
	release. Please check for and report problems.


-	cdtext.c now checks for empty CD-Text files to prevent a later endless loop in cdrecord
	while writing the TOC. Thanks to Sebastian Trüg <trueg@k3b.org> for reporting.

-	Man page corrected some problems from hypen -> minus 


Cdda2wav (Maintained/enhanced by Jörg Schilling, originated by Heiko Eißfeldt heiko@hexco.de):

-	cdda2wav now supports new parameters for the -output-endianess option.
	"host" or "machine" represent the actual byte order of the host CPU in the current OS.

-	Fixed a man page bug that did hide some text from the visible result. Thanks
	to Michael Prokop

-	Man page corrected some problems from hypen -> minus 

-	Removed some Copyright hints to people who did never really enter code into mkisofs

-	Removed a Copyright hint for RSA that is no longer valid.

Readcd:

-	Man page corrected some problems from hypen -> minus 

Scgcheck:

-	Man page corrected some problems from hypen -> minus 

Scgskeleton:

-	Better support for large files (using ftello()/fseeko())

Btcflash:

-	Better support for large files (using ftello()/fseeko())

Mkisofs (Maintained/enhanced by Jörg Schilling since 1997, originated by Eric Youngdale):

-	Better error messages in case that a specific charset translation is not
	available.

-	Now using HAVE_ICONV_CONST to avoid iconv() related compiler warnings


	HELIOS TODO:

	-	Add the HELIOS UNICODE mapping code. This needs to be done 
		at UCS-2 level for Joliet and UDF (instead of UTF-8) and only
		for Rock Ridge (in case of a UTF-8 based target locale) using
		UTF-8 based translations.

	-	Make the Apple extensions work again with "mkisofs -find"

TODO:
	-	Support correct inode numbers for UDF hardlinks

	-	Support sockets, pipes, char/blk-dev specials with UDF

	-	read Joliet filenames with multi-session if no TRANS.TBL
		or RR is present. I am looking for a volunteer for this task!

		Note that this can never be 100% correct as there is no relation
		between the names on the master (UNIX) filesystem, the ISO-9660
		names and the Joliet names. Only the Rock Ridge names are
		untranslated with respect to the original files on the
		master (UNIX) filesystem.

	-	add libecc/edc for CDI and similar.


CYGWIN NT-4.0 NOTES:

To compile on Cygwin32, get Cygwin and install it.
For more information read README.win32

The files are located on:

ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/alpha ...

NOTE:	These tar archives are 100% POSIX compatible. GNU tar may get some
	minor trouble. If you like a 100% POSIX compliant tar, get star from
	ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/star/

WARNING: Do not use 'winzip' to extract the tar file!
	Winzip cannot extract symbolic links correctly.
