Announcing xorriso-0.4.2


be invited to try the new release 0.4.2 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. 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 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, DVD or BD but rather incorporates
the libraries of libburnia-project.org .


* New option -md5, new -as mkisofs option --md5 allow to record in the image
  MD5 checksums for the whole session and for each single data file.

* New options -check_md5, -check_md5_r allow to verify the whole session or
  single files by comparing their image data with their MD5 sums.

* Options -compare, -compare_r, -update, update_r now can use recorded MD5.

* New -find actions check_md5, get_md5, make_md5 allow to check, to display
  or to recompute MD5 checksums of data files.
  New find test -has_md5 distinguishes data files which have recorded MD5
  from files which have none.

* New -find test -has_any_xattr and action get_any_xattr allow to inspect
  the libisofs specific attributes of namespace "isofs".

* Options -lsl and lsdl now display correct link counts if -hardlinks is on.

* New option -calm_drive allows to reduce drive noise if no data reading is
  intended for a while.

* New option -list_profiles allows to inquire and process the list of
  supported media types.

* Bug fix: xorriso -as mkisofs did not understand the -C option of growisofs
           any more. (Already fixed by release 0.4.0.pl01, 20 Jul 2009)

System requirements:
- Linux   : kernel 2.4 or 2.6, libc, libpthread
- FreeBSD : libc, libpthread, ATAPI/CAM enabled, see atapicam(4)
- 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:
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 to one of these mailing lists:
or directly to me:

Have a nice day :)
