Description Thomas Backlund 2018-04-30 22:36:50 CEST
New xorriso for supporting using grub2 as boot manager on isos... Requested by MartinW and alredy used on mga6 infra:

Other fixes:

Bug fixes towards previous stable version xorriso-1.4.6:

    -as mkisofs -no-emul-boot without -boot-load-size defaulted to size 4, instead of full boot image size
    -read_fs "norock" did not prevent reading of root Rock Ridge info
    Mix of absolute and relative disk paths could cause SIGSEGV with pattern expansion
    Protective MBR for GPT could emerge with boot flag set
    Appended partitions of size >= 4 GiB led to abort with error message "FATAL : ISO overwrite". Thanks to Sven Haardiek.
    --mbr-force-bootable did not get into effect with -append_partition
    Exit value of failed -mount command was reported as 0
    -boot_image actions "keep" and "patch" did not work any more. Regression by libisofs 1.4.4.

Enhancements towards previous stable version xorriso-1.4.6:

    New -find tests -maxdepth and -mindepth
    New commands -update_lxi and -update_li
    New -boot_image bootspec iso_mbr_part_type=
    New -as mkisofs option -iso_mbr_part_type
    New -as mkisofs option -eltorito-platform
    Properly refusing on Pseudo Overwritable formatted BD-R

Looks good to me, most of other commands would require some study, I'leave that to others.
