Bonfire, application to burn CD/DVD for the gnome desktop

Bonfire is an application to burn CD/DVD for the gnome desktop. It is designed to be as simple as possible and has some unique features to enable users to create their discs easily and quickly.
Features include: burn / copy / erase data and audio discs, allows full editing of data discs (remove/move/rename files inside a directory, ...) as well as audio discs, handle all audio files if Gstreamer supports them, with a customisable GUI.

In Windows, there is one of the most popular Nero Burning ROM to burn your files onto CD or DVD. It goes that the KDE and Gnome deskops in Linux have their own popular burning software application. According to this article, it seems that k3b (the commonly used CD/DVD burner in Linux) is about to be dethroned by Bonfire, the fast upcoming application

Currently, Bonfire is just another application to burn CD/DVD for the Gnome desktop. It is designed to be as simple as possible and has some unique features to enable users to create their discs easily and quickly, just like Nero Burning ROM.

Requirement
* - gnome 2.14.x (gnome-vfs, nautilus-cd-burner)
* - gstreamer (>= 0.10.6)
* - libxml2
* - Hal (>= 0.50)
* - a fairly new kernel (>= 2.6.13 because of inotify) (optional)
* - beagle (>= 0.2.5) (optional)
* - totem (>= 2.14) (optional)
* - GDL (>= 0.6) (optional)

To obtain Bonfire on your system, check first if your package repositories already have Bonfire. If not, you can always download the source and compile it yourself. It should not be too difficult, as long as the dependencies are met.
