Liebe Steffen
Why don't you concentrate on trying to develop a rock solid
CD/DVD/Bluray writer for the Armini ???
I'm sure Rcomp would be overjoyed if you did that, and it would
go well with the work they are doing to use the Armini for
creating high quality sound files.
I would like to get an Armini at some point, but I need it
to be able to write DVD Rs reliably.
Best wishes Jon

Subject: [cdvdburn] Happy new year!


so the year 2012 is almost over, and nothing much happened on the
CDVDBurn front. Sorry for that.

I have high hopes that 2013 will be different. Really.

The problem is: all I have done in recent years is not really fit for release.
The Blu-Ray support. The USB support. The CD/DVD Extractor feature.
with recent drives (especially DVD is a problem - CD and Blu-Ray usually works).

The possible exception is ARMv6/ARMv7 compatibility, but this is worthless
without working USB support.

So anyone interested in buying an upgrade to get some half-baked solution
for their Beagle/Panda/Raspberry?

I also started a project called "Isofier" which is a Java app that can create
a true RISC OS CD (i.e. all filetypes intact) from a PC filing system, e.g.
from a HostFS directory written to by RPCEmu or Virtual-RPC. Of course it can
also create plain old ISO/Joliet images if you want. It is already usable from
the command line but lacks a good GUI. Anyone interested in that?

What I do have finished is a Java app that transforms a CDVDBurn-style
image directory into a
image file. Anyone interested in that?

Whatever you think, I wish you all a happy new year, and keep the faith.
