GNU xorriso 1.2.4 released


libburnia project is pleased to announce the release of version 1.2.4
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 .


xorriso is now able to produce hybrid filesystems with HFS+ metadata.
Alternatively it can produce ISO 9660 images which contain boot partitions
for EFI and x86-Mac. This has the same effect as an isohybrid run with
options --efi and --mac.
