I use dvdrtools, a fork of the GPL version of cdrecord
I used to use that, but it wasn't able to burn at 4x on my TDK burner, or at all on my 8x Liteon burner. I've switched to dvd+rw-tools and have been very happy with it.

The article points out that dvd+rw-tools supports DVD+RW and DVD-RW, but did not mention that it supports DVD+R and DVD-R as well.

For data CDs I still use cdrecord, and for audio CDs I use cdrdao.

Sorry, I thought that was a given, that if DVD+RW is supported, DVD+R would be as well, etc.

If I understand correctly, the software requirements for writing to DVD+R are somewhat different from those to write to DVD+RW. So I thought it was worthwhile to note that the read-only formats are also supported.
