Project Release Information
xorriso improved its capabilities to serve the needs of frontend programs. A proof of concept for a GUI frontend has been included in the tarball: xorriso-tcltk.
See the new screenshot.
Handling of timestamps in the
Joliet and ISO 9660:1999 trees has been enhanced. xorriso now stores mtime in these trees and in the ECMA-119 tree. Some minor bugs were fixed.
Intermediate opening and closing of
of drive device files is now avoided.
xorriso operates on QEMU DVD-ROM and
on qemu virtio-blk-pci devices.
Emulation mode xorrecord now has
its own man page and info document.
Bugs were fixed in processing of ACLs. Processing of extattr was enabled on FreeBSD. Vanishing udev links on GNU/Linux no longer disturb ongoing burn runs.
GNU xorriso creates, loads, manipulates, and writes ISO 9660 filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions. Files can be copied in and out. The session results get written to optical media or to filesystem objects. Rather than needing external tools for ISO 9660 production and CD/DVD/BD burning, it is a static compilation of libburnia-project.org. Thus GNU xorriso depends only on fundamental operating system facilities.
