GNU xorriso 1.0.0 released


be invited to try the release 1.0.0 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 allows to create an ISO 9660:1999 directory tree, improved the
emulation fidelity of command "-as mkisofs", lowered the default abort
threshold for batch mode, and increased that threshold for dialog mode.

The version number took a leap to 1.0.0 in order to emphasize the maturity
of the software.

* Bug fix: -as mkisofs -print-size did not account for -partition_offset
* Default -abort_on value is now "FAILURE" with batch and "NEVER" with dialog
* New -compliance options untranslated_names , untranslated_name_len=
* New -as mkisofs option -untranslated_name_len
* New -compliance option iso_9660_1999, -as mkisofs option -iso-level 4
* New -compliance option iso_9660_level=number
* New -compliance option allow_dir_id_ext, -as mkisofs -disallow_dir_id_ext
* Disabled TOC emulation with -as mkisofs. May be re-enabled by --emul-toc.
