  requires root access on Sunray environments
- Win32 ioctl works now on win2k and XP (and probably NT and ME)

- option --with-versioned-libs now checks for GNU ld.

version 0.67

-  portability for ARM

  translating them into Unix-style names (i.e. lowercase letters, 
  with version numbers dropped.)
- expand/improve documentation.
- more graceful exits when there is no CD or can't read it.

-  sample program using libiso9660 added.

version 0.64

-  add routines to return a list of devices or scan a list of devices

   for plugins that want to find a CD-DA to play or find a plugin that handles
   a particular device. 
-  cd-read: new program to help diagnose reading problems.
-  cd-info: now displays date on iso9660 listing and translates filename 
   to normal conventions, gives track "green" info

   stat. Routines to create ISO-9660 directories and entries must now
   supply the time to set on the entry.

   fixes (but not complete either)
-  BSDI fixes
-  Document more functions.

version 0.63

-   API: add routine report if string refers to a device or not
-   Make use of features in libcddb 0.9.4.

version 0.6

version 0.4

-  More regression tests.

   or greater.
