libburnia project is pleased to announce the release of version 1.4.2
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
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: -backslash_codes "on" did not work outside quotes
           and with showing "\r"

* Bug fix: zisofs compression caused SIGSEGV (by reading) with files larger
           than 524160 KiB.

* Bug fix: Names read from Joliet tree where stripped of trailing ";1"

* Bug fix: Media summary session count of blank and closed media was short by 1

* Bug fix: Endless loop if transport error occurs while waiting for drive ready

* Now sorting the data file content extents by ECMA-119 tree, rather than
  by the red-black tree which shall consolidate files with identical
  source object.

* New command -modesty_on_drive,
  new -as cdrecord -immed, minbuf=, modesty_on_drive=
