GNU xorriso creates, loads, manipulates, and writes ISO 9660 filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions. Files can be copied in and out. The session results get written to optical media or to filesystem objects. Rather than needing external tools for ISO 9660 production and CD/DVD/BD burning, it is a static compilation of libburnia-project.org. Thus GNU xorriso depends only on fundamental operating system facilities.

Release Notes: A freshly introduced regression prevented compilation of GNU xorriso on systems other than GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, or NetBSD. A very old libburn bug was corrected that could cause a buffer overflow by one 0-byte with CD TAO burn runs. Another fresh bug caused annoying error messages with xorriso-tcltk has been fixed.
Release Notes: xorriso has learned to operate optical drives and media on NetBSD. A few rarely-occurring bugs have been fixed. It is now possible to find files with names which cannot be represented unchanged in ECMA-119, Joliet, or HFS+.
Release Notes: A long-standing hidden bug was fixed which affected inspection of unformatted DVD+RWs. EL Torito boot images are now put to low block addresses by default. Read speeds can be reported and set. Several rarely-occuring bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Several small bugs were fixed. The capabilities of xorriso to serve frontend programs in dialog mode have been improved.
Release Notes: Several bugs were fixed. The recently introduced boot preparation capabilities were tested. New boot preparation options for GRUB2 were added.
