GNU xorriso 1.0.2 released


be invited to try the release 1.0.2 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 fixes several bugs and introduces the capability to copy
files inside the ISO filesystem. A compilation obstacle on Solaris 9 was
removed. More options are supported by the mkisofs emulation.

* Bug fix: Images produced with -for_backup might be unreadable and
           also fail -check_md5 verification.
* Bug fix: mkisofs emulation options -l , -full-iso9660-filenames did not work.
* Bug fix: Option -mkdir yielded SIGSEGV due to a NULL pointer
* Bug fix: ECMA-119 standards violation with Volume Descriptor Set Terminator
* Removed compiler obstacles of GNU xorriso on Solaris 9
* New isoburn_igopt_set_extensions() option isoburn_igopt_old_empty
* New options -clone and -cp_clone
* New -find actions update_merge, rm_merge, clear_merge
* New -as mkisofs option -max-iso9660-filenames
* New -as mkisofs option --old-empty
* New -as mkisofs options -root , -old-root
* New -as mkisofs options --old-root-no-md5, --old-root-no-ino, --old-root-dev
