Version 2.01.01a55 of cdrtools

Release Notes: This release makes Linux installation more safe: install scripts have been enhanced to make sure that cdrecord will be installed suid root if "make install" is called by root, but cdrecord is not installed suid in case "make install" is not called by root. The new makefile variable INS_RBASE controls the install location of files like /etc/default/cdrecord, while other files may be installed into /opt/schily.

    Release Notes: libschily/sleep.c and libschily/usleep.c now work with MinGW. Cdrecord now prints timediffs also in hours:minutes:seconds. Cdda2wav no longer includes "c2check" in the "proof" paranoia option to avoid a firmware bug in a TSSTcorp drive. Mkisofs has slightly-reduced CPU time requirements. A problem in isoinfo has been fixed; it did not always print timestamps in -find -ls mode.

      Release Notes: mkisofs includes a new option, -legacy, that allows it to reenable the short options -H/-L/-P; these have been disabled in 2006 for compatibility with scripts that have not been updated during the past 10 years. libsiconv now only tries to open a file when the argument includes a slash in its name. libschily::printf() now includes support for %n$ argument reordering for the first 30 arguments.

        Release Notes: This release adds some workarounds for compiling with MinGW. New functions xcomerr(), xcomerrno(), fxcomerr(), and fxcomerrno() in libschily. A bug in libschily/format.c that caused %.*s to be printed incorrectly has been fixed. libschily/fprformat.c gives better printf() performance on Solaris. Some bugs in the mkisofs man page have been fixed. Mkisofs now opens "NUL" on Win-DOS instead of "/dev/null".

          Release Notes: Libparanoia and cdda2wav have been enhanced to give much better results with slightly bad media and new hardware.

            Release Notes: This release added different fine-grained privilege handling that keeps root privileges in cases where cdrtools have been called by a privileged program. Libfind now supports "event port" type files. Clashes with an outdated cdda_paranoia.h file in /usr/local/include/ as seen on FreeBSD are now avoided. Emulations for *at() functions have been added to libschily.
