libburnia project is pleased to announce the release of version 1.2.8
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 .


* Bug fix: On some drives the request for minimum speed yielded maximum speed

* Bug fix: Reading damaged Rock Ridge data could cause SIGSEGV by NULL.

* Bug fix: -tell_media_space altered the pointers to MD5 of data files
           which stem from a previous session. This produced false
           mismatches with -check_md5_r.

* Bug fix: CD tracks were reported with the sizes of the tracks in the
           first session. Regression introduced with version 1.2.0.

* Bug fix: -check_media use=outdev sector_map= stored TOC of input drive

* Bug fix: -hide hfsplus and -as mkisofs -hide-hfsplus had no effect.
           Thanks to Davy Ho.

* Bug fix: ./configure did not abort if libburn.h or libisofs.h were missing

* New command -move

* New -as mkisofs options -eltorito-id , -eltorito-selcrit
