libburnia project is pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.4
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. It can mark boot equipment in the filesystem image so that
machine firmware finds it.
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 libburnia-project.org .


* Bug fix: Large amounts of AAIP data or many long file names could cause
           with zisofs an unreadable filesystem after the warning
           "Calculated and written ECMA-119 tree end differ"

* Bug fix: -report_system_area as_mkisofs misrepresented GPT with appended
           partition and forced boot flag as -part_like_isohybrid

* Bug fix: Boot catalog could get a wrong name if cat_path= is explicitely
           given but not containing a slash character

* Bug fix: Big-Endian MIPS Volume Header boot file size was rounded up to
           full 2048. Thanks René Rebe.

* Bug fix: El Torito production failed if no catalog path is given and the
           first boot image path contains no slash

* Bug fix: zisofs production was wrong on big-endian machines

* Bug fix: Appended APM partitions without HFS+ production had start and size 1

* Bug fix: On GNU/Linux early SCSI commands were not logged

* New helper script xorriso-dd-target

* New command -truncate_overwritable

* Switched to usage of libjte-2.0.0

* New -jigdo parameters "checksum_algorithm", "demand_checksum",

* New -as mkisofs options "-jigdo-checksum-algorithm", "-checksum-list",

* New -read_speed prefixes "soft_force:" and "soft_corr:"

* New -check_media option data_to="-" for standard output

* New -zisofs parameters version_2=, block_size_v2=, max_bpt=, max_bpt_f=,
  bpt_target=, bpt_free_ratio=, by_magic=v2, susp_z2=

* New -as mkisofs options --zisofs-version-2, --zisofs2-susp-z2,

* Enabled recognition of zisofs by magic without zlib support

* New -osirrox option sparse= controls extraction into sparse files

* New libisoburn extension options isoburn_ropt_map_joliet_stripped and

* New command -joliet_map

* New command -extract_boot_images

* New API call isoburn_ropt_get_tree_loaded()

Peculiarities of this release:

A 5 year old bug of libisofs about zisofs was reported when the release
tags in git already existed and GNU xorriso-1.5.4.tar.gz was already
uploaded. This halted the final steps of the release for a week.

The now released state is:

- libisofs-1.5.4 has the bug fixed. Because no upload had happened yet,
  the tarball still goes by the name libisofs-1.5.4.tar.gz .
  The old libisofs release tag was changed to "release-1.5.4.rc1".
  The current tag "release-1.5.4" marks the code state of the now released
  libisofs-1.5.4.tar.gz .

- GNU xorriso has been patched to xorriso-1.5.4.pl02.tar.gz which is now
  uploaded. (By a moment of inattention i failed to fix the bug in .pl01,
  which got uploaded before i noticed. I feel duely embarrassed.)
