I have an LG BH12LS38 blu-ray burner in a machine I bought in december. 
Running 9.0-RELEASE

I haven't burnt a BD-R yet but I have used k3b (which is just a gui 
front end to growisofs,mkisofs,cdrecord,cdrdao,etc) to burn plenty of 
single layer dvd's.

 From the info I can see that cdrecord and growisofs list blu-ray in 
features.

The prefs show the drive info with BD-R BD-RE listed in write 
capabilities. Available space jumps in sizes up to 50GB and it asks you 
to insert a blu-ray medium if file sizes total over 8GB

It looks to have all the support needed.

As for authoring a blu-ray to play in your home theatre it could be 
another story - I haven't looked into that.
