Let it burn!

For a long time now I have been looking forward to a better way to deal with cd/dvd burning than just wrapping a GUI around cdrecord. There are people working on it, libburn, but for a while I feared the project dead. It has beed revitalized and recently released 0.3.0.

Not many applications are using libburn yet, but I have high hopes. Rumor has it that brasero (Default burning app in Foresight) will use libburn 0.3.0 in the next revision. In preparation, I have added libburn and libisofs to Foresight

The libburn guys are even working on a cdrecord drop in replacement that uses libburn, “cdrskin”. Which replicates all the command line behavior of cdrecord.
