the `NetBSD in-kernel support for UDF' project has reached a new milestone:
full read support for CD-RW/DVD+RW media allowing one to access a CD or DVD
as a mountable filing system.
UDF is a commonly used filing system for CDs and DVDs developed as the
successor of the well known ageing ISO 9660 CD standard commonly known as
`iso' or `isofs'. UDF is commonly used in all DVD video and DVD audio
applications as well in CD authoring programs like Nero's InCD and Roxio's
In the open-source community in-kernel support is scarce. FreeBSD has a
read-only version that regretfully is showing some ageing and Linux has
some read/write support for UDF though pretty restricted.
The `NetBSD in-kernel support for UDF' project tries to implement full
read/write support for recordable and rewritable CDs, DVDs and its
successors luke BluRay and HD-DVD.
The preliminary read-only version will most likely be committed to the
-current tree when some unresolved issues are fixed and more media types
