GNU xorriso 0.6.2 released


be invited to try the release 0.6.2 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 to disk.

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 introduces a partition with non-zero offset for ISO 9660
images on USB sticks, improves mkisofs emulation, and fixes a bug.

* Bug fix: Regression with -hardlinks and -compliance old_rr, 0.4.2, Aug 2009

* New option -preparer_id, -as mkisofs options -p and -preparer

* New -boot_image specifier emul_type=none|hard_disk|floppy

* New boot_image boot specs partition_offset,partition_hd_cyl,partition_sec_hd

* Made behavior of -as mkisofs with unknown options more similar to original

* New -as mkisofs option -hard-disk-boot, enabled -b without -no-emul-boot

* New -as mkisofs option -e from Fedora genisoimage

* New -as mkisofs options -partition_offset,-partition_hd_cyl,-partition_sec_hd
