Birne project is a very simple frontend for cdrecord and mkisofs.

With Birne you can burn files, ISO images and music files (currently supported are WAV, MP3 and Ogg Vorbis) to CD-ROM and CD-RW. It is not very mature yet but works for the most common situations.

Support for configuration files is planned so that preparing Birne for usage by ordinary users should be easy.

You can run Birne by unpacking the tarball and running the executable "birne" in the directory created by tar. There is a very simple installer script which helps to set up Birne for all users on your system.
