libburnia project is pleased to announce the release of version 1.3.8
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: -boot_image grub grub2_mbr= did not work
           (but -as mkisofs --grub2-mbr did work)

* Bug fix: -boot_image grub2_mbr=  prevented -boot_image partition_table=on

* Bug fix: libburn: A final fsync(2) was performed with stdio drives,
                    even if -stdio_sync was set to "off".

                    by gcc -O2

* Bug fix: -blank force:all on DVD+RW had no effect

* Enabled use of libedit as alternative to libreadline

* Enabled recording and restoring of extattr on NetBSD
