Toast enables users to burn data, music and video to writeable CD and DVD media. Tools included with the software also allow you to use Toast to automate backups and archives, conversion of audio from records and cassettes onto CD, custom menu styles for video and much more.
The updated release improves disc spanning -- users are now prompted to reburn if a failure or error occurs. iMovie 5 projects with chapter markers are now correctly burned to DVD. Video export now properly supports MPEG-4 and H.264 for video iPods. The update also fixes crashes decoding and exporting DivX video files and exporting for PlayStation Portable (PSP).
Other changes have been made, as well -- Roxio has posted release notes online.
System requirements call for a G4 or better, Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later, 300MB of free hard disk space to install (up to 15GB of temporary disk space during usage), QuickTime 7 or later, and a CD or DVD burner and recordable media.
