Coaster breakthrough

Yes, I’ve made a breakthrough on Coaster this week. I started getting frustrated with libburn because I found out that libisofs doesn’t write Joliet extensions to iso images; this won’t do. I also ran into some issues where images in memory (not yet written to disk) write wrong on PPC. So I talked to Bastien Nocera and switched the backend of Coaster to use libnautilus-burn from nautilus-cd-burn. DISCLAIMER: I’m not dropping support for libburn, but in order to get a release out, I have to have a working backend.

Yesterday, I got Coaster burning CD’s successfully (albeit, slow because of my hard drive troubles) which gives me new hope. Maybe we can get a pre-release out next week (only a few months late on the pre-release). MAYBE. 😉
