K3b 1.0.4 released


It has been a while since I worked on K3b and now that I did most of my time went into the work on K3b 1.1 (or maybe even 2.0 as the great Laurent Montel will help me with the KDE 4 port of K3b in two weeks. We will have a little workshop at the Mandriva office in Paris actually).

But I also tried to put a little work into the stable branch and the result is this fourth bugfix release of the 1.0 series.

* K3b now silently allows the burning of files bigger than 4 GB if an appropriate version of genisoimage or mkisofs is installed ("silently" means that I did not introduce any new messages)
* I was not able to find the aweful "disabled DMA" bug but I introduced a little workaround which hopefully solves it for many of you (BTW: K3b from svn trunk does support DVD burning with cdrecord.)
* Never use growisofs parameter -dvd-compat with DVD-RW media in restricted overwrite mode (some drivesdo not like that)
* Unmount medium before DVD formatting
