Software update: InfraRecorder 0.50.0

A new version of InfraRecorder was released on Sunday. This open source program for Windows can burn CDs and DVDs. It is being developed by Christian Kindahl, who started the project during Google Summer of Code 2006. The internal engine uses cdrtools, a collection of open source programs for burning CDs and DVDs. The previous version dates from eight months ago and the changlog shows a decent list of changes:
