k3b Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies
  4. k3b-20.08.2.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

K3b Version 18.04.0

Thanx for downloading K3b - The CD Kreator

These are the features so far:
 - the most userfriendly interface ever ;-)
   - themable

 - Media-centric user interface:
   - Select the medium to use for burning instead of the device
   - K3b always knows about all optical devices and inserted media and adjusts the UI accordingly

 - writing audio-cds
   - On-the-fly decoding of many audio formats through plugin struxture
     (decoding plugins for mp3, ogg vorbis, flac, wave, musepack, wma, aiff, and others)
   - CD-Text support
   - Metadata support, fill CD-Text from metadata or via Internet queries (CDDB + Musicbrainz)
   - little gimmick: hide the first track (so that you have to search back from the 
     beginning of the cd to find it)
   - volume level normalization (only when writing with an image)
   - multiple sources for one track possible (merging of tracks, splitting of tracks, 
     adding silence of arbitrary length)
   - integrated "preview" player
   - Directly add audio tracks from other CDs and let K3b take care of the rest.
   
 - writing ISO9660-CDs and DVDs
   - Joliet/Rockridge support
   - Udf filestructures (no pure Udf so far)
   - create image/write image

   - removing files and directories from data tree
   - moving files within the project
   - adding new empty directories to data tree
   - renaming of files (manually or automatically for mp3-files) (for joliet and rockrigde)
   - support for most of the mkisofs-options (I don't think anyone will ever use them! ;-))
   - multisession support (including importing old sessions and overwriting files from old sessions)
     Automagically multisession handling: start, continue, or finish multisession CDs and DVDs based on 
     the size of the project and the remaining capacity on the media.
