This is an updated version of the ISO-9660 standard. Some features:
- Filenames can be 207 characters long, and case-sensitive.
- Filenames no longer need to have a dot (i.e. not 8+3), and no longer
have a version number (the ";1" that is usually concealed).
- Limits on directory depth have been removed.
Operating system support for ISO-9660:1999 started appearing in 2004 or so.
The first version of Windows to support it is WinXP.
