Special ./configure options
In some situations Linux delivers a better write performance to drives if
the track input is read with O_DIRECT (see man 2 open). The input reader of
the cdrskin fifo can be told to use this peculiar read mode by :
--enable-cdrskin-fifo-odirect
But typically libburn call burn_write_opts_set_dvd_obs(opts, 64*1024) will
yield even better performance in such a situation. 64k can be made default
at configure time by :
--enable-dvd-obs-64k
This may be combined with above --enable-cdrskin-fifo-odirect .
Make sure to re-compile all source files after running ./configure
make clean ; make

It can retrieve media product info and can process track input which was
prepared for CD-ROM XA Mode 2 Form 1. cdrskin now performs option -minfo.
- 28 Oct 2009 libisoburn-0.4.4 fixes a bug with cdrecord emulation and
introduces new information options about media type and ISO image id strings.
On Linux it helps with mounting two sessions of the same media
simultaneously.
- 12 Nov 2009 libburn-0.7.2.pl01 works around problems with Pioneer DVR-216D.
DVD-R runs made the drive stuck. Ejecting the tray did not work properly.
