Release Notes: BSDi 4.x is now supported. Support for ISO-9660:1998 was started to provide longer filenames in ISO mode.
Release Notes: This is the first stable release in a long time. Many features were implemented, including support for Yamaha's DiskT@2 technology, experimental direct-IDE support (without SCSI emulation) on Linux, and many other enhancements.
Release Notes: This release sees mkisofs -dvd-video work on Win32.
Release Notes: A bug in mkisofs that resulted in broken filesystem images when -udf was used and the directory nesting was > 8 was fixed.
Release Notes: This release includes a workaround for a BeOS compile problem, avoids locking the tray in rare cases, and updates the roffed man pages.
Release Notes: This version fixes a bug in libscg for dev= on BSDiOS, supports ssh(1) for RSCSI, includes better POSIX/FreeBSD compatibility, introduces a new option minbuf=, which allows to specify the dr. buffer fill ratio for the ATAPI workaround, now always uses -v with minbuf= and -immed, makes the FIFO code work on AmigaOS, fixes several CDDB bugs in cdda2wav, includes new exit codes for cdda2wav for better GUI support, makes HFS_TYPE and HFS_CREATOR work for mkisofs, prints a warning with mkisofs -f because there is a bug that cannot be fixed with this version, includes better DVD-Video support for strange players, and correctly handles UDF files > 1 GB.
Release Notes: This release includes a small fix for a libscg patch from Linus (O_NONBLOCK doesn't work for Linux-2.2), a workaround for a Linux kernel bug (CDROM_SEND_PACKET returns wrong EINVAL), a fix for a Cdrecord bug with Yamaha AudioMaster and CD-Text (wrong TOC start time), the rewriting of padsize=handling to make it work correctly, and verbose printing now orthogonal for all situations. The option -immed now includes an experimental feature to support drives in notebooks that are on the same IDE cable as the hard disk. A mkisofs bug with -f (follow symlinks) was fixed.
Release Notes: A major speedup was made with libedc (used to write raw data CDs). Help functions have been added to libscg (SCSI transport) to list possible low level SCSI transport layers. A patch for Linux from Linus Torvalds was added to allow cdrecord to be used on ATAPI drives without needing the ide-scsi driver. Linux users who use a kernel version less than 2.4 must apply the patch at ftp://ftp.fokus.gmd.de/pub/unix/cdrecord/alpha/cdrtools-1.11a38-linux-patch to libscg to use this version.
Release Notes: This release now allows Make dependencies with the HP-UX bundled C compiler and the AIX C compiler. It fixes a problem with alloca() that prevented compilation on AIX, libedc was sped up by 70%, and there is a cdda2wav temporary compatibility bug for the -v option. A new option -overhead was added to readcd to meter SCSI command execution overhead.
Release Notes: In this release, config.sub now supports ia64, there are libscg fixes for VMS, Solaris, and Linux, you can once again compile without FIFO and libedc. There is a workaround for the read buffer capacity on drives with broken firmware, there is a temporary feature, -v<number>, for cdda3wav, and there is support for HFS volumes > 5 GB.
