Fosik - A GTK+ front-end to mkisofs

Oftentimes, a command-line program can be clunky and scrolling through the man pages takes time when you want to do a simple task. mkisofs is an example of this - a powerful program that wastes the user's time by making it difficult to find how to do simple things. 

Available for Linux (and other OS's if you can compile GTK+ programs on it), 
Fosik brings a graphical front-end to mkisofs to make it easy to perform simple tasks. Development began today and the first release is expected to be rolled out next month.
For more information, see the Fosik homepage and the code repository.
