Thanks to Sam Varshavchik for this report.

I just got the word that Gear software will be porting their CD mastering software to Linux. This should be welcome news to everyone who uses a number of legacy CD burners that are only supported by Gear's Windows mastering software.

Although it would be nice if the respective manufacturers would release the technical documentation on their legacy CD burners, in order to write an OSS driver, this is better than nothing.

underway. We expect to have the new release available around the 4th quarter of
this year. Please continue to visit for update info.
