be invited to try the release 1.0.4 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 .


This release of GNU xorriso fixes several bugs in its mkisofs emulation.
The emulation has now an own man page and info document.

* Bug fix: xorrisofs did not work under growisofs -M (version 1.0.0 was ok)
* Bug fix: -as mkisofs -C attempted to read volume header of blank media
* Bug fix: -as mkisofs -old-root did not work with -graft-points
* Bug fix: -as mkisofs -partition_hd_cyl had no effect
* Bug fix: -as mkisofs did not properly unescape target part of pathspecs
* Bug fix: isohybrid image size was not aligned to cylinder boundary
* Bug fix: Compilation without zlib failed
* New -padding modes "included" and "appended"
* New bootspec partition_cyl_align=, new -as mkisofs option -partition_cyl_align
* New -as mkisofs and -as cdrecord option --no_rc
* Own man page and info document for xorrisofs
