Nero Linux 3.5.0.1 is available for download!

Nero Linux 3.5 is now finally available for download here. This version is the first big update to Nero Linux 3.
It now contains a command-line tool (called NeroCMD) to use the Nero Burn Engine directly from scripts or 3rd party applications.

Changelog for this version:

New features:

[ul]
[li]A command-line tool, nameed ‘nerocmd’, has been added. Please consult its manual page for more details.
[/li][li]The Nero Digital Audio+ Plug-in is now included for decoding and encoding files. This plug-in is currently only available in 32 bits. It will also be released in 64 bits in a future version.
[/li][li]A physical device presence check is performed at application startup. The device permissions check is then only performed if no physical device is found on the system.
[/li][li]The installer will try to check the current kernel configuration and update the /etc/modules file if the SCSI Generic Support is compiled as a module, and the module is not loaded.
[/li][li]The installer will add a shortcut to the application in the AsusLauncher utility of the Asus Eee PC.
[/li][/ul]

Patches:

[ul]
[li]The ‘Add Files’ dialog box now also works with Mixed Mode and CD EXTRA compilations. ‘Function not implemented’ errors no longer appear.
[/li][li]The ‘Open Compilation’ and ‘Add Files’ dialog boxes are now correctly sized when using old GTK+ versions.
[/li][li]Fixed German translations in the Nero Linux Compilation MIME type description string.
[/li][li]You can now burn multiple copies of an Audio CD compilation without problems.
[/li][li]You could not create bootable discs that contain a pure ISO 9660 file system. This is now fixed.
[/li][li]The MP3 Plug-in now gets the frame size correctly for all bit rates.
[/li][li]The ‘Writing file’ label value does not show ‘?? BUG ??’ for HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc images anymore.
[/li][li]Fixed GTK warnings when the demo dialog box appeared in Asian languages.
[/li][li]The ‘Number of copies’ widget is now disabled if no real write process is performed.
[/li][li]The ASPI has been slightly improved to avoid deadlocks with specific hardware configurations.
[/li][/ul]

FYI - I got these warnings when upgrading from v3.1.1.0 (x86) to v3.5.0.1. I think it’s more of a problem with RPM though since it doesn’t quite handle switching between symlinks and files too well (or vice versa). I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling the RPM to make sure it doesn’t keep happening in the future.

[root@localhost v3]# rpm -Uvh nerolinux-3.5.0.1-x86.rpm

Thanks for pointing this out. I just informed our deployment team about this issue.
