Official Mirror: is an open-source software project for reading, mastering and writing optical discs. For now this means only CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, DVD-RW. The project comprises of several more or less interdependent parts which together strive to be a usable foundation for application development. These are libraries, language bindings, and middleware binaries which emulate classical (and valuable) Linux tools. Our scope is currently Linux 2.4 and 2.6 only. For ports to other systems we would need : login on a development machine resp. a live OS on CD or DVD, advise from a system person about the equivalent of Linux sg or FreeBSD CAM, volunteers for testing of realistic use cases. We have a workable code base for burning CDs and overwriteable DVDs, though. The burn API is quite comprehensively documented and can be used to build a presentable application. We have a functional binary which emulates parts of cdrecord in order to prove that usability, and in order to allow you to explore libburnia's scope by help of existing cdrecord frontends.
