GNU xorriso 1.5.2 released
libburnia project is pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.2
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
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 .
* Bug fix: Stream recording was applied regardless whether the drive offers it.
This caused failures with some MATSHITA laptop drives if
-stream_recording was enabled.
* Bug fix: TDK Corporation was not recognized as manufacturer of DVD-R "TTH02"
* Bug fix: Appended GPT partitions were not covered by the protective MBR
* Bug fix: Multi-session emulation spoiled GPT production.
"GPT partitions ... overlap". Regression towards 1.4.8
* Bug fix: Appending partitions 5 to 8 caused damaged ISO filesystems if not
for SUN disk label
* Bug fix: SIGSEGV happened if --grub2-boot-info was given without -b
* Bug fix: -disk_pattern on -add ./ -- mistook "./" for the root directory.
* Bug fix: -disk_pattern "on" -add "" -- yielded SIGSEGV
* Bug fix: -osirrox "concat_split_on" worked only together with -split_size
larger than 0. Thanks William Willems.
* Enabled GPT type GUIDs with -append_partition,
-boot_image any iso_mbr_part_type=, and -as mkisofs -iso_mbr_part_type
* Made libisoburn and GNU xorriso ready for building out-of-source.
Thanks Ross Burton.

- 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.

If they were present at compile time, then the optional libraries have to
be present at runtime, too.
