libburnia project is pleased to announce the release of version 1.4.6:

libburn,    a burn backend library for CD, DVD and BD.
cdrskin,    a burn backend binary with a command line interface
            compatible to cdrecord.
libisofs,   a library for creation and manipulation of ISO 9660
libisoburn, a library which coordinates libburn and libisofs
            to allow multi-session on all random access readable
            and writable media and file objects.
xorriso,    an integrated ISO 9660 multi-session tool with
            additional emulation of mkisofs.

System requirements:
- Linux   : kernel 2.4 or newer, libc, libpthread
- FreeBSD : libc, libpthread, IDE and SATA drives need atapicam
- Solaris : libc, libpthread
- NetBSD  : libc, libpthread
- OpenBSD : libc, libpthread
- on other X/Open systems there will be no direct operation of
  CD/DVD/BD drives, but only POSIX i/o which may or may not
  be offered by the system for DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, or BD-RE.


libburn now operates optical drives on OpenBSD. libisofs makes pseudo-random
id generation reproducible by relating it to the volume date.
xorriso interprets environment variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH of
reproducible-builds.org to prepare a default setting which leads to identical
ISO images on identical input and identical constant options.
Several moderately embarrassing bugs have been fixed.

libburn novelties:
* Bug fix: SAO CD could be perceived 2 blocks to short.
           Regression in 1.4.4 by rev 5672.
* Now operating optical drives on OpenBSD. Thanks to SASANO Takayoshi.
* New API call burn_drive_set_immed()

cdrskin novelties:
* New cdrskin option use_immed_bit=

libisofs novelties:
* Bug fix: SIGSEGV by NULL when a data file was larger than ISO level allows.
* Bug fix: Interpretation of 17 digit timestamps was wrong.
* New API calls iso_generate_gpt_guid() and iso_write_opts_set_gpt_guid().
* Made several pseudo-random ids reproducible by overriding volume modification

libisoburn novelties:
* New API calls isoburn_igopt_set_gpt_guid(), isoburn_igopt_get_gpt_guid()

xorriso novelties:
* Bug fix: The default setting of -compliance did not apply rec_mtime to
           Joliet and ISO:1999. mkisofs emulation was not affected by this bug.
* Bug fix: -file_size_limit did not increase ISO level if necessary.
  Thanks to Mattias Schlenker.
* New command -use_immed_bit, new -as cdrecord option use_immed_bit=
* New -volume_date mode "all_file_dates"
* New -as mkisofs option --set_all_file_dates
* New bootspec "gpt_disk_guid=", new -as mkisofs option --gpt_disk_guid
* New -report_system_area modes "gpt_disk_guid", "make_guid"
* New -find action "set_to_mtime"
* New environment variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH
