K3b 2.0 RC3

Hi, that took us way longer than expected but we’re finally released RC3 of K3b. Among other things the infamous BD bug has been fixed (thanks to muesli who reproduced and debugged the issue). You can grab the sources here.

I’m currently enjoying KDE Multimedia & Edu Sprint in Randa so you can expect soon the next RC with a couple of new bug fixes. After that the final stable version should finally come out the door.

    Nice! Now if only Ubuntu and/or other big distributions would switch back from wodim to cdrecord.

    @d2kx: Never going to happen (unless upstream suddenly grows a clue, which is very unlikely to happen any time soon), for licensing reasons.

    Wodim works fine for CDs. For DVDs or BluRay disks, use growisofs instead. K3b supports that just fine. It’s the better tool anyway.
