GnomeBaker is a GTK2/Gnome cd burning application. I've been writing it in my spare time so progress is fairly slow. It's more of a personal project as I wanted to have a go at developing on Linux and I figured that as I had got this far I may as well let it loose on the world. Maybe someone will like it and use it.

If you have any suggestions then please feel free to email me at .

GnomeBaker's dependencies are:

libgnomeui-2.0 gtk+-2.0 >= 2.4 libglade-2.0 cdtools mkisofs growisofs dvd+rw-tools gstreamer-0.8 (vorbis, mad, flac and misc packages)

So far it can do the following:

* Create audio cds from existing wavs, mp3, flac and oggs
* Import M3u and pls audio playlists.
* Create data cds
* Blank rewritable disks
* Copy data cds
* Copy audio cds
* Burn existing cd iso images
* Can burn via scsi and atapi on linux kernels 2.4 and 2.6. Basically if cdrecord works then GnomeBaker will work.
* Drag and drop to create data cds (including DnD to and from nautilus)
* Integrate with gconf for storage of application settings
* Burn DVDs.
* Supports multisession burning
* Blank/Format DVDs
* Burn Cue/Bin files
* Burn data cds on the fly
In the future it will also do the following and hopefully much more:

* Create video cds from existing video and stills
* Create mixed mode cds

Screenshots - version 0.2

Version 0.2Add audio cd creation
Version 0.3Add multisession capability
Version 0.4Add mixed cd creation
Version 0.5Add on the fly burning
Version 0.6Add video cd creation
